Habitat house built by Roanoke College students moves Thursday


ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - A house built by students at Roanoke College will be transported to its permanent location in Northwest Roanoke Thursday.

The transport will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will take approximately 30 minutes. The four sections of the house will be moved on two large tractor trailers.

Once loaded, the trucks will spend the majority of time on Main Street and Melrose Avenue. The house is expected to arrive at its permanent location on Fairfax Avenue before noon.

Once at the site, a crane will place the four pieces of the home together.

Within three hours, Habitat for Humanity Construction Director, Brian Clark said the home will take shape.

The organization hopes to have the home finished within the next few months.
