Habitat for Humanity is known for building simple, decent, and affordable housing.  By helping more people achieve the dream of owning their own home, there is a dramatic, positive change in the lives of families and neighborhoods. This year Habitat for Humanity in Birmingham is working with professional home builders, subcontractors and suppliers in the home-building industry on a special one-week project called Builder Blitz.

Builder Blitz will see all of these various home-building industry businesses working together to build multiple houses simultaneously in one week. This annual house-building event increases Habitat Birmingham’s house building capacity by allowing the organization to continue their regular building schedules, while the professional builders coordinate and execute the Blitz build. Scotch Homes is proud to be one of the home builders involved in this important project.

Habitat for Humanity began in 1976. Their mission statement states: “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope”. The organization is now international, but they remain a non-profit organization and are now the largest not-for-profit builder in the world, having built, rehabilitated, or preserved more than 800,000 homes since it first began.

The homes that the affiliates around the world build use volunteer labor and Habitat makes no profit on the sales. They construct quality houses that are sold to special qualified home buyers through no-profit, no-interest loans. Homeowners are chosen based on their level of need, their willingness to become partners in the program, and their ability to repay the loan. Every affiliate follows a nondiscriminatory policy of family selection. Neither race nor religion is a factor in choosing the families who receive Habitat houses.

The Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders, which includes Scotch Homes, is proud to take part in the Builder Blitz, which will take place August 25 through September 1. If you are inspired by these home builders who are working hard to provide affordable homes to more people in the Birmingham area, get in touch with Habitat for Humanity in Birmingham to learn how you can advocate, donate, and volunteer.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
