Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz 2012 brings hundreds of building industry professionals with nationwide projections to build more than 200 homes across the United States. This Blitz Build is the only one taking place in Virginia and the 4th largest in the country.

The builders are:Charles Ross Homes, Garnett Construction, Earley and Associates Building Inc., Tidewater Properties & Construction Company and Wayne Harbin Builder, Inc.

Wayne Harbin Builder is building their home in 7 DAYS!

imageThis is the 3rd Home Builders Blitz home Wayne Harbin Builder will have completed in SEVEN DAYS (they built the first one in 2006, then 2008 and now this year)!  
Wayne Harbin Builder was founded in Yorktown, Virginia in 1985 by Wayne Harbin and now includes his two sons Doug and Brad. Home Enhancements, the Remodel Division of Wayne Harbin Builder was formed in 2007 by Doug and Brad Harbin to expand the company to cover the needs for quality additions and renovations. “It is our good fortune to be able to give back and serve the community in this way,” said Brad Harbin, Vice President of Wayne Harbin Builder, Inc. “We are enlisting the help of our suppliers, subcontractors, employees and business associates.”  This one story, three bedroom, two bathroom home is being constructed for Angele Cowles and her two sons, 14-year old Kitrell and 13-year old Devron. Angele works for the Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools as a bus driver and for the Salvation Army

How truly amazing to walk into the Wayne Harbin Builder home and see it is basically done!  From last Saturday when they started to frame the home to the finished home today is truly astonishing!  The cabinets are in, the walls are finished, the final flooring was just being put in place, and someone was even hanging a beautiful ceiling fan!  Truly remarkable!




The other wonderful builders were continuing their amazing work on all the other homes.
