It is not her home yet, but you will find Melissa Krueger putting in plenty of work on her new home thanks to Door County Habitat for Humanity and the Door County Housing Partnership. Krueger and her four children were chosen as the future homeowner for one of the two homes currently under construction in Sturgeon Bay. She had to meet the necessary financial requirements before coming eligible to buy the home from the organizations. Krueger is looking forward to not having to pay rent anymore after her home is ready later this fall. She was cutting wood for bracing and trim for her garage on Thursday and she looks forward to working on the home when she can.
Future Homeowners have to put in at least 200 sweat equity hours, which include participating in the home builds, volunteering at the ReStore, and helping out other events as a part of their agreement with Door County Habitat for Humanity. You can volunteer with the home build and donate snacks, meals, and drinks to the work crew by contacting the Door County Habitat for Humanity office.
