This years Housing Development Alliance annual project was held downtown Hazard on Broadway. Volunteers, alongside skilled carpenters hired by the Housing Development, put the house together in roughly three short days. The house stands in place of the old Hazard High School, and was designed to fit the aesthetics of the historic downtown neighborhood. Volunteers included Hazard High School students, Perry County Central JROTC, the Perry County Drug Court and Butler University; as well as community members, and local businesses, who also provided the donations for the funding of the house.
Scott McReynolds, Executive Director of the Housing Development Alliance said, “We do these every year and we’ve built a few close to Hazard, but had never built one right in town. We were excited to have one that will be very visible.” He says the construction, roofing, and shingling of the house is finished, and he hopes to have the plumbing and electric completed by Christmas.
