HOME: #93 The Strand Family

Location: Eveleth

Date Started: June 01, 2019



Meet the Strand Family!  Amber and her son, Austin (age 5) are building in West Eveleth.    

They are currently living in a too-small rental unit, with leaky windows and very thin walls.  They are not only looking forward to having a home in which they can build equity and that will be energy efficient to heat and cool, but also to having sufficient space for energetic Austin to run and play.  When Amber found out she had been selected to partner with Habitat, she “was extremely excited.  It was like a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders!”  She is very much looking forward to not having neighbors so close that she can hear them through the walls and to setting up her own house rules instead of following a landlord’s requirements.  As for Austin, it is “awesome we get our own house!
