Habitat’s second build in El Cajon is finished! Phase II consists of six single family homes, all of which are 1,283 square feet, have wraparound porches, carports, and have been designed to meet Energy Star 3.0 energy efficiency. This build expanded the successful first phase of the Foundation Lane community, built in 2009 with the generous support of the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. The second phase was made possible by a continued partnership with the Jimmie Johnson Foundation, Lowe’s Home Improvement, the City of El Cajon, many generous building sponsors, and countless volunteers.

Four of the six houses were built completely in one week as part of our Home Builders Blitz! How is that possible, you say? With the help of builders who leverage their relationships in the building industry to get donations of building products and labor, our Blitz sponsors all work towards the goal of building the homes at zero cost to Habitat. Thanks to McCarthy Builders, Balfour Beatty Construction, Clark Construction, RQ Construction, the many other sponsors and thousands of volunteers who helped six new Habitat homeowners achieve their dream of a safe, stable home where they can thrive.
