Third Panel Build: House-Raising Success

“What homeownership means to me and my kids is stability…being able to have pets and have a place where we don’t have to worry about moving. They can have their own rooms.” –Kenyata Duncan, Homeowner

American Structurepoint hosted its third panel build for the Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity on June 27. Eighty-five American Structurepoint employees came together in the parking lot of our headquarters to help frame a 4-bedroom, 1,300-sft house. Volunteers worked on the set-up crew, checked in volunteers, and participated in two build shifts to frame a home in just over five hours. Additional employee volunteers helped with the “tear down” on June 28, readying the home for transport.

Nail captains led teams of employees through both build shifts. They were Webb Bernhardt, Tom Carrow, Alex Varney, David Mohler, and Matt Koehling. (Matt is a financial advisor at Raymond James who learned about the panel build while visiting our office for a presentation on our 401(k) plan.) We are appreciative of everyone who donated their time and talents for this project.

The Duncan family will reside in the home we framed. Kenyata and her three children are excited to become homeowners. “We’re looking forward to having a real home of our own, and starting a new beginning. This is truly a blessing. Thank you to Habitat and all the volunteers involved!
