Habitat for Humanity of Ontario County broke ground a new home in the City of Canandaigua on Friday, August 19th. Construction begins later this fall at 33 Foster Street for what will be the future home of Todd, Tiffany and their daughters Vivian and Emily.

The family is very excited to see construction start for their future home. Both Todd and Tiffany will be actively involved in the construction process, contributing hundreds of

hours of sweat equity alongside many Habitat volunteers.

Crews will be on site soon to dig the foundation, raise the walls and roof, and get the house sealed up before the cold weather comes. Construction will continue indoors through the winter with the anticipated completion date of early June 2017.

Prior to the groundbreaking, Habitat removed a condemned building from the site to make way for the new home. Many thanks go to Casella Waste Systems for their generous donation of disposal services and to the City of Canandaigua for their assistance with the demolition.

The future home being built on this site will be the first to utilize a new design developed through a partnership between Habitat and APD Engineering and Architecture, PLLC of Victor, New York.
