This event marked the 8th annual Framing Frenzy Build which is in conjunction with celebrating National Homeownership Month.
The festivities began at 9 a.m. with AmeriCorps volunteers building the frame of a house to be moved to Frederica for the Main Family.
The Sussex County, Central Delaware and New Castle County chapters of Habitat for Humanity were joined in a celebration by Governor John Carney, members of the General Assembly, Delaware State Housing Authority Director Anas Ben Addi, Delaware AmeriCorps volunteers, the Delaware Association of Realtors, Delaware Health and Social Services, and Home Builders Association of Delaware.
"We know that homeownership creates more stable neighborhoods, forges stronger relationships, and helps more children succeed in life," said Governor John Carney, who presented a proclamation in honor of Homeownership Month. "Working together, we can help more Delawareans achieve the dream of homeownership and keep our state growing and thriving."
"The cost of regulation raises the price of a new home by over 30%. We have to get that cost down if we expect people to be able to afford to own a home," said HBADE President, James McCulley.
Thank you to our President and our members who came out to support this great event!
