Construction is about to begin on another Habitat for Humanity home in Broome County.

The new house is to be built on a lot at the corner of Floral Avenue and Willow Street in Johnson City.

Amy Winans, executive director of Broome County Habitat for Humanity, says this will be the group’s 27th home.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Winans said the project will be constructed with the Advel family. The family now lives in a large Binghamton apartment complex.

The Habitat organization chooses families who meet income guidelines and agree to contribute an extensive amount of “sweat equity” to work on the project with volunteers from the community.

The basic homes are sold to participating families with a no-interest mortgage loan.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the project is to be held at 10 o’clock Wednesday morning.

Winans said the family should be able to move into the house in about a year.
