Coventry Homes Sponsors Habitat for Humanity Home: Employees Spend Day Constructing New Home
Cold winds and spotty rain didn’t deter employees of Coventry Homes (who are more accustomed to ties or high heels than hard hats) from recently working on one very special home for one very grateful first-time homeowner.
Twenty staffers from Coventry Homes’ corporate headquarters joined crews from KPRC Channel 2 and Houston Habitat for Humanity to work on a Habitat home that started construction last week. It is the builder’s second consecutive year to sponsor a Habitat for Humanity home.
“We’ve built more than 50,000 homes for Texans — building homes is what we do,” said Gary Tesch, president of McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc., (MHI), parent company of Coventry Homes. “This is an ideal opportunity to give back to our community and help the Barrera family get into their first home.”
The four-bedroom house that started in the KPRC studio parking lot Jan. 13 will be home to Sandra Barrera, a single mother who now lives with her two young children and grandmother in a small trailer. She said she has dreamed of living in a safer place to raise her children.
“I want to give them a bigger space to grow, play around and have their own space,” she said.
The Coventry Homes crew labored on site in Harrel Park 2, a neighborhood being developed by Habitat for Humanity, Jan. 15. The team worked on decking, joints, weather stripping, installing weather-proof insulation and more.
“What we did Thursday will make the home very energy efficient, which is right in line with how we build our homes,” Tesch said.
Coventry Homes joins Star Furniture, Noble Energy, Pappas and Shipley Donuts in sponsoring the KPRC Habitat home. Other sponsor teams also will have “build days,” joining Habitat for Humanity personnel and Barrera, who is required to contribute 300 hours of sweat equity into the building of her home. Habitat for Humanity benefactors also must complete training on home ownership and purchase their home through no-interest loans. Barrera’s home should be complete this spring.
The Houston Habitat for Humanity organization has been active in the Houston area for 27 years, building 960 homes for approximately 3,600 low-income residents. More information can be found at www.houstonhabitat.org.
