Habitat for Humanity Toronto to build two houses in eight days

In what's being described as an ambitious undertaking, Habitat for Humanity Toronto is looking to build a couple of barrier-free homes for two low-income families with disabilities in a week and a day.

According to the nonprofit charitable housing organization, the eight-day effort – which has been dubbed the 9-1-1 Build – will bring together a variety of Toronto public service organizations including Toronto Police, Fire and Emergency Medical. Those involved will attempt to build the homes from start to finish in eight days.

Habitat for Humanity released a tentative agenda for the effort. For instance, on September 17, building will begin and several political representatives will be on hand to officially launch the effort. By Saturday, September 24, it's anticipated that the homes will be completed, and two yet-to-be-named families will be handed the keys to their new residences. Habitat for Humanity Toronto CEO Neil Hetherington is expected to speak as well.

Homeownership brings with it a variety of purchases that take up room. The eventual owners may be wise to secure a storage unit so they can use it for a later date, or now if a furnishing clashes with a room's decor.
