(WTNH) – Middlesex Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1996. They have built or rehabbed 12 homes, and are currently building the 13th house in Portland, CT. They will be building a second home in Portland, slated for a Military family, in 2017.
Middlesex Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore specializes in the selling of new and recycled building materials, furniture, appliances, and other home furnishings at bargain prices! Stocked entirely with materials supplied by businesses, contractors, and members of the community, the ReStore makes these needed items available at prices far below retail. The ReStore recycles useable materials that would otherwise go into landfills. It’s a great way to “Go Green,” receive a tax write-off, and help support the community through the building of Habitat for Humanity homes.
Locations include Wallingford, Stratford, Bloomfield and more. Head to http://www.habitatmiddlesex.org/ for more information.

Ciburbanity is simply a mesh of the words of city, suburb, and sanity. Furthermore it is a blog started by Charlotte Smith.
Ciburbanity chronicles Charlotte’s personal journey of fixing up her 100 year old home while artfully hoarding armchairs in her garage when she’s not writing, painting, sanding, laughing or negotiating with her five children.
