Habitat home gets homey

DEMOPOLIS – Although only a few volunteers showed up to work Saturday morning, Demopolis’ Habitat for Humanity home almost has a complete roof.

According to Demopolis’ Habitat president, Freddie Charleston, workers finished putting up the fascia board and began to put shingles on the roof.

“We finished the electrical work and got some of the duct work done,” he said. “This Saturday we’ll be finishing up the shingles.”

Charleston said the project is moving along and “things are going really well” with Dick Kirkpatrick and Frank Charleston in charge of construction.

As always, community residents can still volunteer and send monetary donations to help with supply costs.

Charleston is especially hoping for more volunteers this weekend so the project can stay on schedule and be completed while there are still decent weather conditions to work in.

“We are just trying to beat the bad weather,” Charleston said. ” And we hope everyone can come out and be a part of this historical moment.”
