Hidden Plainfield: Something new for the New Year IDed

Compare the amount of work done by year's end above
with the October photo below.
Right, right and right! Yesterday's Hidden Plainfield, construction by Greater Plainfield Habitat for Humanity, is at 716 East 6th Street, between Berckman and Central Streets. The picture above shows the amount of work that has been done toward completing the house since I took the first snap in October.

Habitat home on East 6th Street in October, 2011.
The Plainfield chapter of Habitat, founded in 1989, has built over 33 homes. Habitat homeowners, who purchase their homes at cost, must put in 'sweat equity' along with the organization's volunteers to actually help build the house in which they will eventually live.

Learn more about Habitat by visiting the Plainfield affiliate's website (see here) or drop by the Greater Plainfield Habitat's office at 2 Randolph Road (corner of Park Avenue), where you can meet Executive Director Rev. Jeremy Montgomery and learn more about how to help this vital program.

Where shall we go next week?

While I applaud Habitat for the work they are doing, I think about the impact the building of what I call "barracks" style housing. In your photos, the new home has created a shadow on the house next door robbing them of the sunlight they had enjoyed previously.
