Since our founding in 1987, we’ve had the honor of helping over 130 Loveland families build and own their home. Here’s a few of their stories:
Building Homes & Community in Loveland
Loveland Habitat builds decent, affordable homes, and while you probably already knew that, we wanted to share a little more about our home construction operation.
Habitat homes are not that different from other homes in the Loveland area. They are built from the ground up, and include brand new appliances. Every home we build must be permitted and pass inspection to ensure the safety and protection of our families. The only difference (and biggest!) is that our homes are built by volunteers! We work year-round and build 4 days a week, with 5-6 homes under construction at any given time.
We’re fortunate for the support of many great donors nationally and locally to help keep our homes affordable. Home appliances are donated by Whirlpool and many of our local tradespeople donate or provide their services at a reduced cost. We couldn’t do what we do without the help from our community.
We’re Building in Sierra Valley, Loveland
Loveland Habitat is now building homes in the neighborhood of Sierra Valley, which is located just approximately 1/4 mile west of Highway 287, on SW 14th Street. They entrance street is Valency Drive.
Each Habitat home features custom cabinets, which are built by inmates from the Crowley Correctional Facility, located in Olney Springs Colorado. This is a unique partnership, which provides custom-built, all wood cabinets for a fraction of the cost. And provides inmates the opportunity to learn professional woodworking and develop job-ready skills they can use when they are released. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to order your own custom-built cabinets, check out our WeBuild Cabinets page.
