Comfort is the name of the game with the new home design for Habitat for Humanity of the New River Valley. The organization recently completed its first new home in Floyd County. The home boasts super high energy efficiency due to walls comprised of structural insulated panel walls, loads of blown cellulose in the attic, a sealed crawl space and high efficiency appliances. But the comforts don’t stop there, with more and bigger windows, nine foot ceilings, the space feels light and airy. The engineered hardwood floors offer durability and beauty while the kitchen and both baths sport ceramic tile. The home is universally designed to ensure accessibility for all.

But a home is only a home with a family to love and live inside. The home buyers are a young couple with deep roots in the Floyd community. With their families, they contributed 750 hours of “sweat equity” in the construction of their home. For more information, contact: Shelley Fortier, sfortier@habitatnrv.org.
