Residents of Estevan got a chance on Sunday to take a peek at the progress on the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity's house build, which has come a long way in the last few months.
Dale and Verdynne Gilchrist were among the members of the public that attended the open house, and they shared their thoughts on the project and structure.
"It's a good opportunity for any family that just needs a little help to get started, and all the volunteering is good for the community, there's no doubt," Dale noted.
They added that the first thing they noticed was the wide open space in the house.
Doug Barnstable, the Chair of the Steering Committee, expressed that they are looking forward to the finish.
"I guess everybody gets a little excited as things start to take shape, and starts to more resemble a home. You can see the end in sight, you can see some of the things that will get done in the next 4-6 weeks, then hopefully we will be able to hand the home over to the family."
They don't have a specific end date chosen yet, but Barnstable estimates it could be around mid November.
Postive feedback was also received all around, as most of those touring the place expressed their approval.
"It's a good sized house. It's certainly not one of the largest houses in the area, but its definitely going to be a big step forward for the family," Barnstable said.
They are still looking for volunteers to pitch in and help out with the project as well.
