Local builder builds Habitat for Humanity home in 30 hours

On September 17 and 18, Hunter Quinn Homes mobilized over 20 trade partners to participate in Habitat for Humanity’s national Home Builders Blitz initiative. What was initially designed to be a week-long build turned into a 30.5 hour build from framing to final inspection.

With Habitat for Humanity of Berkeley County (HFHBC) providing the land and blueprints, Hunter Quinn Homes, in addition to local contractors and suppliers, provided donated materials, supplies and labor to complete the 1,200 square foot home for the deserving Habitat family.

Each day, more than 50 skilled tradespeople worked from sunup to sundown in partnership with the future homeowners and volunteers, to complete the build of their new home. With the house fully framed in under 2 hours, the build continued rolling ahead of schedule and the house was completed 6 hours sooner than the schedule allocated.

Cline Homes building at Awendaw Village

Construction is underway in the exclusive, gated community of Awendaw Village.

The homes will range from 2,500 to 3,500 square feet and prices begin in the mid-$600,000s. Homesites start at one-half acre and occupy less than 50 percent of the total land area, with the remaining land designated as permanent green space. Plans are to establish a National Federation Bird Sanctuary.

Situated about a mile north of the SeeWee Outpost, 16 miles from the Charleston Ravenel Bridge and four miles from Carolina Park, Awendaw Village will have 41 homes on over 100 acres of wooded landscape. Thoughtful landscape elements such as plantation-style shell roads will wind between ponds and natural areas are planned throughout. Phase One consists of 14 homesites with views of Village Pond. Each home has generous setbacks and backyards that abut permanent green space.

Awendaw Village is partnering with Cline Homes as the exclusive builder. To learn more about visit www.awendawvillage.com or contact Rob Benware at robert.benware@carolinaone.com, (843) 714-9902 or John Sweeney john.sweeney@carolinaone.com, (843) 730-0377.
