Middlesex Habitat for Humanity is gearing up to rebuild a home in the city's North End, enabling one more partner family to become a homeowner in Middlesex County.
A vacant wood-frame house built in 1850 at 201 Liberty Street in Middletown was purchased on Nov. 28, 2012, by Middlesex Habitat for Humanity for $27,500.
After extensive evaluation, the house, which is 1,096 square feet and sits on .12 acres of land, was determined to be beyond repair and the decision was made to demolish the existing structure and to build a new home, according to MHH.
The new home will feature an accessible first floor and bedroom and will be Energy Star certified. Construction on the new Habitat home is expected to begin this spring.
Habitat received a $50,000 challenge grant from The Peach Pit Foundation, a Middlesex County Family Foundation based in Durham committed to helping individuals and families with a step up. For information, call (860) 343-9179 or visit http://habitatmiddlesex.org.

Construction is expected to begin in March. Team build requests are now being accepted for full build days. Companies and individuals interested in participating in the build project should contact Manny Cunard at firstname.lastname@example.org or (860) 316-8827.
Construction will take place every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on occasional weekdays. 34 Shunpike Road, Unit 24‐26. Cromwell, CT 06416.
