Creating green Habitat for Humanity homes

Bre-habitat-x-humanity-11-2All hands were on deck on Veterans Day this year when the Greenwich-based Interstate+Lakeland Lumber, Andersen Windows and Murphy Brothers Contracting joined Habitat for Humanity of Westchester (HFHWC) during the “veterans blitz build-a-thon.”

They added the all-important energy-efficient touches on the first two homes renovated for the HFHWC Veterans’ Initiative completing the installation of all the new windows.

HFHWC has a major commitment to build for returning veterans, repair homes for seniors and hire veterans.

Five homes are underway with a target of 50 over the next five years. Andersen Windows and Interstate+Lakeland Lumber teamed up to donate all the energy-efficient 400 series Andersen windows for these two homes in addition to their commitment to get involved in the next rehab project.

“When Sean and Chris Murphy called and asked if I would help them out with a home for vets project, I immediately asked, ‘What do you need?’ To me, the veterans of this country deserve all of the support that we can give them,” said Sheldon Kahan, president of Interstate+Lakeland Lumber.

“They are the ones who put themselves in harm’s way so that we can enjoy the freedom that exists in this great country of ours. On behalf of everyone at Interstate+Lakeland Lumber, it is with great pride and pleasure to be part of this project that gives back to someone who gave so much of himself for us,” added Kahan.

The Murphy brothers are both Greenwich residents.
