Saturday morning, Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex dedicated its Winter Windsor Build Project to its new family.

The new home, located at 1247 Armanda Road at Matchette was presented to the Laib-Dahmani Family. The family’s new home is the 55th Habitat home built in Windsor-Essex County since the organization affiliated in Windsor 20 years ago.

“This build has certainly been a process” says Ed Link, Board Chair, HFHWE. “The weather this winter has definitely been something we have had to deal with, however the City of Windsor, or Corporate Sponsors, Teams and volunteers have been extremely supportive. This project has come to an end, and what an incredible result” Link adds. “This will be a very happy day for the Laib-Dahmani Family.”

The Laib family’s new home is a nearly 1,100 square foot brick and vinyl raised ranch with three bedrooms and one bathroom. The Laib family Nabil, Fatiha, eight year old Rym, five year old Mohamed and one year old Ibrahim are eager to move into the home, as soon as their interest-free mortgage is finalized, and they close on the deal at the end of the month.

“It has been a long process to get to this point, but we were so pleased to see the homeowner on the jobsite, even in the terrible weather” states Renee Lebrun, Build Assistant. “We are very excited to get this family into their new home and starting their new life in their beautiful, safe new neighbourhood.”
