MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- "House No. 27" has red doors, black shutters on light gray siding and a splash of pink and blue among its three bedrooms.
In a "blitz" of work over three days, the latest project of Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Panhandle along Twigg Drive in Martinsburg was put under roof, painted, hammered and chiseled into form.
The future home of Octavia Combs of Falling Waters, W.Va., and her two daughters - Nicole, 13, and Genesis, 5 - is scheduled to be dedicated at noon Friday, according to Al Means, Habitat for Humanity's executive director.
Landscaping and interior finishing of the 1,059-square-foot rancher is expected to continue today, Means said.
The not-for-profit ecumenical Christian organization's third "blitz build" home construction project is the 27th since the Eastern Panhandle chapter of the international organization was incorporated 15 years ago, Means said.
