The first ever Habitat for Humanity House in Green River is complete. A celebration and ribbon cutting was held recently to welcome the Mendoza family to their new home. The home is located at 120 South Solomon in Green River.

Designed by the Epicenter, this house has a strong focus on durable and efficient materials. Details: 1064 SF, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 2?--6 construction to increase insulation to reduce heating bills, low-E double-glazed windows, 40-year warranty fiber-cement board siding, metal roof, well-insulated, 9 ft. interior ceiling heights with a vaulted ceiling in the living room, crawlspace construction, raised-heel trusses, whole house fan, hardwood floors, central heating and cooling.

"Over the span of its construction, we've had more than 100 volunteers donate thousands of hours on this house, including the Mendoza family, who has put in more than 500 hours," said organizers. In addition to the amazing volunteers, this house was made possible through generous donations and partnerships: The George S. and Delores D. Eccles Foundation, Dr. and Mrs. Steve Sykes, Positive Action Community Team, Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, Union Pacific Foundation, Scott Wilson, St. Joseph's Collegiate Challenge, Private Donors, P&D Ace Hardware (Green River), Valspar Paints, AmeriCorps, High Desert Excavating (Green River), Dow Chemicals, Double E Construction (Green River), Powerhouse Electric (Orem), Moab Plumbing, Jones' Paint and Glass (Provo), and Whirlpool.
