Progress takes more than just planning, it takes hard work, long hours and a level of dedication often overlooked during the holiday season. Habitat crews, as well as our subcontractors, are working well into the darkness and on these especially cold nights, we’re even more grateful.
Scott Gilbert, President of Habitat Roaring Fork, visited recently at the end of the work day and said “It was awesome, the guys were working under moonlight, some halogen site lights and then two trucks pulled over with the high beams direct toward them. No, I didn’t put anyone’s initials in the concrete… but only for fear my finger might get frozen into it!”
The Basalt Vista project is a combined effort and extraordinary collaboration with the Roaring Fork School District, Pitkin County and the Town of Basalt to provide 27 affordable homes for teachers and others in our local workforce. Through this effort, we hope to create a model that can be adopted in communities throughout Colorado and across the country.
We are extremely grateful for our hardworking crews, who remaining positive and happy, even in the coldest of working conditions. We are also thankful to our supportive community and partners.
