App Builds A Home is a campus-wide partnership with Watauga County Habitat to build a Habitat home for a local family in need. The students, faculty, and staff of Appalachian State University are coming together to design, fund, and build the home.

Time To Get Crazy! 

The weekend of September 21st and 22nd, construction on the first ever Appalachian State Habitat House will officially kick off. This won't be a normal day on the build site, however. That's because a group called the Habitat Road Trip Crazies are coming to town to help us perform a feat of what some might consider a construction miracle. That's right, we will be attempting to build the entire frame of the App State Habitat House in just 48 hours. This means we should have all of the walls up as well as the roof, without all of the exterior finishes like siding or shingles. To some that might sound impossible, but to the Habitat Crazies, it's just another day on the job. The Habitat Crazies consist of a group of volunteers located mainly out of Lynchburg, Virginia who travel around the country to perform these "blitz builds" with different Habitat for Humanity affiliates. Over the course of that weekend of September 21st-22nd, 50 Crazies and over 100 Appalachian State volunteers will pull off this "crazy" weekend. With the help of the Habitat Crazies, the overall timeline of the build of this house should be shortened tremendously. A typical Habitat house in Watauga County takes around one year to complete, but, thanks to the Crazies blitz build weekend, this house could be completed in just four short months. If you are eager to be a part of this blitz build weekend, you can sign-up to volunteer by clicking here.

Meet the Partner Family

You might recognize the faces of David and Amy Barker if you are working on the build site of the App Builds a Home project. That's because the Barkers, along with their two children Nathan and Kali, have been chosen as the homeowners of this Habitat house. Amy and David will be working tirelessly alongside all of the volunteers from start to finish to complete the work on their new home. We are so excited to welcome the Barkers to the Habitat for Humanity family!
