Middlesex Habitat for Humanity has Great DIY tips and tricks

(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.
