Habitat for Humanity builds home for Rockland family of nine

Brickl Brothers volunteer some time as well

Another Habitat home is benefiting a local family, only costing them their hard work.

The 46th Habitat for Humanity La Crosse home is for a Rockland family of nine.

Brickl Brothers, a contractor out of West Salem, volunteered its time to complete the frame of the house. The home is also being built in partnership with Couleecap who is providing funding through Wisconsin’s Community Housing Development Organization.

Construction managers say each Habitat home is worth the effort.

“It’s just a good feeling to get good, solid homes for these people to live in for many, many years, and that’s been our track record, families living in them with generations building on it,” said Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Construction Manager Roger Embke.

Habitat volunteers and the partner family will complete the house together.

This is the 25th year Habitat for Humanity La Crosse has worked in the La Crosse area.
