Purdy Family Closes on Habitat for Humanity Home

Door County Habitat for Humanity’s 41st partner family, Amanda and Jacob Purdy, closed on the purchase of their home on Feb. 22. With the closing, Amanda and Jacob become the official owners of the home, which was built by Door County Habitat for Humanity volunteers. Eighty volunteers logged more than 4,500 hours in the home’s construction. Involved in the closing were Amy Sullivan of Pinkert Law Firm; Chris Loose of Lakeshore CAP; Denise Plassmeyer of Knight Barry Title Group; David Van Dyke, executive director of Door County Habitat for Humanity; Glen Viste, president of the board of Door County Habitat for Humanity; and Candy Lehmkuhl, secretary of the board for Door County Habitat of Humanity. The Purdys’ mortgage payments, along with the payments of other partner families, will help to fund future home builds in the county. Congratulations to Amanda, Jacob and their children on their new home! Habitat for Humanity accepts applications for future home partners. Applications are available at the Door County Habitat for Humanity office, 410 N. 14th Ave. in Sturgeon Bay.
