The following is a pictorial report on the progress made at the Crystal Coast Habitat building project at 242 Oscar Hill Drive Newport, NC. We will update the report with each major building phase with comments and pictures. The construction volunteers typically work at the site every Tuesday and Thursday. Additional volunteers on this project will be active duty Marines as well as our regular volunteers (some are retired Marines). Work days are also scheduled on Saturdays for different volunteer groups.

The Floor system has been completed with the help of Cherry Point Marine/Navy volunteers and our regular volunteers.
The same Cheery Point volunteers and regular volunteers also started adding the outside walls.
