APSO works with Habitat in ‘Blitz Build’

By Donna Thornton/News Editor

Saws hummed and hammers pounded at the Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity construction site on LaSalle Street in Rainbow City on Oct. 11, as members of the Alabama Power Service Organization teamed with Habitat, working to “dry in” a 1,100 square foot house in a single day.

Alabama Power Senior Marketing Specialist Jerry Mills said there were about 36 workers for the organization on hand at various times during the day, along with four employees of Bobby D. Welch Construction, to supervise the work.

The home, Habitat’s Suzanne Scharfenberg said, will be home to Melissa Taylor and her son Brayden upon its completion. It is house #43 for Gadsden-Etowah Habitat for Humanity.

Mills said the APSO volunteers had varying levels of carpentry experience and skill, but “none of  us do this for a living.”

In addition to the APSO volunteers and the supervisors from B.D. Welch Construction, Scharfenberg said students from a Gadsden State Community College carpentry class built a storage building placed alongside the house.

She said it was a good experience for the students, because they were able to build something and let it stand. Most of the time, she said, they build structures in class and have to tear them apart afterward.
