Volunteers for Loudoun Habitat for Humanity celebrated the completion of its largest project Saturday morning.
In front of a crowd of Hayman Lane neighbors and Habitat volunteers, Construction Manager Bud Green handed the keys to a new two-story Round Hill home to Andres and Dianna Sandoval-Cadena and their three children.
The nonprofit owned the lot for 14 years and initially thought of using the land to raise money for other projects. But last year moved forward with construction.
“This was a daunting home as you can well imagine to build. It was outside of our comfort zone. The plan was different than anything we’ve ever done,” Green said. “We’ve built the best house we’ve ever built.”
Also on hand for the dedication ceremony were Supervisor Tony Buffington (R-Blue Ridge) and Round Hill Mayor Scott Ramsey.
“I can’t believe what you’ve built here. It so beautiful,” Buffington said.
“The Sandovals are going to be a great asset to the town Round Hill and we are lucky to have them, not the other way around,” Ramsey said.
The Habitat volunteers also have been busy in Leesburg, renovating two townhouses.
“So we’ve done three homes in the last 10 months—fairly significant work effort on all of them,” Green said. “It’s beautiful work. I would hold it against the work of any production builder anywhere without a doubt.”
Green said he also was happy for the Sandoval-Cadena family. ‘These guys are perfect for this home,” he said.
“It has been a dream come true. We prayed every single day that this could be our home. Thank you very much,” Dianna Sandoval-Cadena said.
