The Dedication of Habitat for Humanity House 83 is done, today , July 01, 2012.

The Sweeny City Manager, Ms Cindy King, was among the attending, welcoming the new Sweeny residents to the Sweeny community. Ms King commented that several city noted residents that how good the new home looked and asked how could they get one like it.

Mary-Ellen Thomas, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Southen Brazoria County replied that until Sweeny changes they building codes, Habitat for Humanity would not be building in Sweeny again, anytime soon.

Most cities of Brazoria County do not require Habitat for Humanity build two car garages. Habitat for Humanity build homes for people, not for cars and trucks.

As for House 83, Habitat for Humanity board felt that they were too far committed too build House 83 with a two car garage.

Normally Habitat for Humanity does not build homes with two car garage.

In the case of the house near Dairy Bar or House 17, the Home owners build the two garage after the Habitat for Humanity group moved on to the next house. The Habitat for Humanity group can not build garage for car. instead of people.
