There are many ways, large and small, that people can make a difference. You do NOT need to be skilled as a carpenter. Think of Habitat as a small business that is entirely run by volunteers. We estimate that half of the hours contributed by volunteers are completed by people who never pound a single nail.

Hussam Alhallak and Hazar Mansour and their three children moved into their new home on Crescent Street in Rutland in early July. To say that they are very excited, happy, and proud, is a tremendous understatement!
“The new home on Crescent Street in Rutland delivers a broad variety of energy efficient features that will allow the owners to heat, cool, and use electricity by a significantly decreased margin over existing homes and even over other homes currently built to the new energy codes. These features include 2” of continuous foam insulation on the walls that enhance the cavity insulation, a superbly tight building envelope that approaches the Passive House standard, high efficiency heat pump mini splits for heating and cooling, a heat pump water heater, and an Energy Star energy recovery ventilator with high efficiency motor that provides superb indoor air quality.
The house scored a 34 on the HERS Index. This is a fantastic score, especially for a house that doesn’t feature any renewable energy. The 34 score indicates that this house, based on the energy modeling, will use only 34% of the total energy—both thermal and electrical—of the code-built reference home to which it is being compared. The owners should find their new home incredibly comfortable, while maintaining that comfort with ease and considerable low cost.” Jeff Manney, Efficiency Vermont
