The Habitat Williamson County 2020 build season will kick off with the House That Beer Built home in Taylor this January. Future homeowner Shonta, a hair stylist and mom of 4, was accepted into the homeownership program in May and immediately started putting in her sweat equity by volunteering in the Round Rock ReStore and on another Habitat home builds. “I’ve really enjoyed being out on the Habitat build sites and meeting all the wonderful volunteers and other future homeowners Flor and Kelsey! My youngest son recently stopped by the panel build event for our house and I could see the awe and excitement in his eyes knowing this will soon be our home!”
Volunteer teams from Faith Lutheran Church Georgetown, Xome Field Services, Chesmar Homes, FTWOODS Construction, Georgetown Rail Equipment Co., Rouse High School and St. John Vianney Knights of Columbus braved the chilly morning weather on Nov. 16 to join Shonta in a special build event called “Hammers & Ales” located in the parking lot behind Rentsch Brewery. When complete (in less than 5 hours!), the teams ventured over to Rentsch for lunch and celebratory beer! Check out the Hammers build video from ASA Imagery.
Construction on her home will begin on site in Taylor mid-January with the House That Beer Built Williamson County brewery teams. Once on site, the home build project will take roughly 12 weeks to complete – with Shonta and her family moving in around early May. “It will be a dream come true! My kids will finally have the stability they deserve, something I never had when growing up. My mom was a single mom who worked very hard to keep us together but we had to move from home to home and sometimes we had to live in abandoned homes and shelters. I don’t want that for my kids. I want security for them and their futures. I’ve worked so hard to show them that anything is possible and hard work and dedication can pay off.” Donate Today to help raise funds needed to build The House That Beer Built!
