Habitat, Affordable Housing Trust Break Ground on Williamstown Project
By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
The two houses to be built on the land will be similar and style and were designed by architect Dana Bixby of Stockbridge.
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Meghan Gleason didn't think she had a chance at a house.
She got the application to apply for a Northern Berkshire Habitat for Humanity house only three days before it was due. But she got some extra time to complete all the necessary paperwork.
"And then all of a sudden, we had a home interview, and then all of a sudden, we had a second interview," an elated Gleason said. "And then I had a break at work and got a phone call and they said, 'Hey, we want to offer you this house in Williamstown,' and it was just unreal. Unreal."
That house came closer to reality on Sunday afternoon when Gleason and Neil DeCarolis broke ground on a new home for their family with some two dozen friends and officials in attendance.
DeCarolis and Gleason turned over the first sod — though not easily — and officials and board members took turns at the shovels as well. Gleason posed with a large sign with the date and plans to continue that practice to mark the project's progress.
