HDA's On-Staff Carpenters
When HDA builds or repairs your home, the work is being done by professional carpenters – not amateur builders. While we certainly welcome volunteers with no construction experience to work alongside us, our worksites remain under the guidance of our on-staff carpenters at all times.
For us, this means that the level of craftsmanship is higher, onsite safety is always assured, the pace of production remains consistent (e.g., we routinely build 17 to 20 new homes each year and repair 60 to 65 homes in a year), and the instruction received by our volunteers, Hope Building trainees, and summer interns is second to none.
Our crews purchase materials from local suppliers, which contributes greatly to the local economy, and we always use local subcontractors for plumbing, septic and sewer system installation, utilities, and more.
