Habitat for Humanity of Jackson County dedicated its 14th house during a recent open house for its newest home.
The house, built mostly by volunteers and its new owners, is at 405 E. Second St. in Seymour on land donated to Habitat for Humanity by Larry Couchman. Bob Goecker of Goecker Construction oversaw the building process and made contacts with contractors.
The house will be a new home for the Anderson family, who previously lived in a trailer in Freetown.
But Katena Anderson said her family almost didn’t go through the application process with Habitat for Humanity. A friend of hers had a home built through the program and encouraged her to apply.
