This week the Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity started construction on their 79th house in the Fremont area since coming to the community in 1993.

In a little under two days, what started as a cement foundation and a pile of lumber began to take shape into a more familiar form.

A home.

On Monday and Tuesday, employees of Christensen Lumber Co. (CLC) spent their usual work hours molding those raw materials into a fully framed house north of 23rd street near the corner of East Churchill Drive and Dover Street.

“I really think this would take us over a month to do otherwise,” Joy McKay, Executive Director of Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity, said. “We use volunteer labor, so a lot of times that is not skilled labor, so to be able to have Christensen come out and frame these houses for us really makes a big difference and saves a lot of time.”
