SEQUIM — Work continues this week on a Sequim home as part of a Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County Neighborhood Revitalization project.

The home in the 300 block of West Maple Street is the first in the Sequim area to receive upgrades, which include painting the house, replacing the fencing and garage door, landscaping, installing new light fixtures and repairing the roof.

The homeowner, who asked to remain anonymous, said Habitat pays for the cost of products. Homeowners have interest-free loans to pay it off over five years.

Representatives of Sequim Sunrise Rotary, First Federal and Habitat began working on the home April 20. Rainy weather prompted postponement of painting to this week.

Volunteers plan to finish the project this weekend.

The homeowner said Allen Roofing patched the roof for free and a Habitat volunteer replaced the garage door for free, too.

“I’m not used to people doing things for me like this,” the homeowner said.

“I can’t reciprocate this amount of work. It’s a little overwhelming.”

Neighborhood Revitalization efforts began in September with volunteers walking through town and performing a visual survey of the area, rating homes on their need for repairs.

Cyndi Hueth, executive director of Habitat, said workers hope the Maple Street project brings awareness to neighbors and Sequim residents so they’ll consider taking advantage of the program.
