The BCMC Build project got underway last week as ground was broken on the two lots in Jackson, WI where mortgage-free homes will soon be given to two deserving wounded veterans and their families. 

In the photo at right, Katelyn Wroblewski (Sgt. Drew Wroblewski’s wife) posed in the excavator used to dig her basement.  The Wroblewskis recently were surprised to find out they were one of the two recipient families of the 2015 BCMC Build. Operation Finally Home is currently in the final stages of selecting the second recipient, so watch for more information soon.

This Friday, September 18, SBCA’s Framing the American Dream project will begin. Framing will commence on the home being built by Belman Homes, and will be entirely stick-built using the prescriptive building code.  It is anticipated the home will be completely framed by the week before BCMC, which will be held in Milwaukee October 20-23.

The home being built by Tim O’Brien Homes will utilize structural building components for the floors, walls and roof. This home will be framed almost entirely in one day starting on Monday, September 28. Look for more information in the coming week about how you can access the live jobsite web cameras to watch these two homes as they are being framed.
