Farmington family celebrates move into new Habitat for Humanity home


FARMINGTON – It was a very special housewarming for Bruce and Tracy Shavor on Saturday as they moved into a home they helped to build alongside volunteers with Southeast N.H. Habitat for Humanity.

Almost a year after the construction started on an empty lot, the Shavors and their children took ownership of the bungalow-style home. Volunteers, people who'd helped raise funds, donors and board members were all on hand to celebrate.

The home is one of four on the Berry Court cul-de-sac built by Southeast N.H. Habitat for Humanity.

"This is what it is all about for us – making affordable homeownership a reality," said Executive Director Marcie Bergan in a statement.

Habitat projects are also planned in other southeastern communities, she said.

"We are just getting started on two new builds in Rochester and are working with JSA architects to design the home to fit in the neighborhood. We are so fortunate to have the community and corporate interest in what we do and look forward to moving our efforts to Rochester and then on to Dover," she said.
