WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Around a dozen volunteers were continuing the process of raising walls Friday morning on the first of two new houses being built by Habitat for Humanity in Williamstown — the organization's first home in five years.

But more volunteers are always needed.

The home under construction is at the corner of Cole Avenue and Maple Street. Habitat officials hope the first home, on the Cole Avenue side of the lot, will be framed out before the winter weather sets in.

Volunteers on Friday were working on the third wall, and work was scheduled to be done soon on cutting the curb on Cole Avenue to allow for the driveway to be situated.

Ground was broken on the house in July. Meghan Gleason, Neil DeCarolis and their four boys — Cameron, Caleb, Christian and Connor — hope to move in next summer.

Crews are typically out on site on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon.

When this first house is complete, work will begin on the second on the other side of the lot.

Potential volunteers can show up on the site or call the Habitat office at 413-664-4440.
