June 9-14th Habitat for Humanity will build two houses in the 2014 Housing Blitz. The foundation is set so that houses can be completed with as much ease as possible. If you would like to volunteer to participate this year sign up here. The last housing blitz was in 2012 on Chambers Street.
Last week we looked at the right side of 22 E. Parmenter that is for sale, 20 E. Parmenter. They are both for sale at the same price, $80,000. As we mentioned last week, East Parmenter has been seeing a lot of rehabilitation work done via work from Habitat for Humanity and the many new residences they have constructed. In the plans is a small neighborhood park and 2 homes will be built in just 1 week during the home builders blitz. The home is fully rented and has an awkward backyard that is shared with 20 E. Parmenter. But overall, the home is a great location, just 1 corner away from Liberty Street and Washington’s Headquarters.
Another great tidbit about this house for you history buffs, the home is among the oldest in Newburgh dating back to 1820 according to an architectural review done by Neil Larson in the 1970′s when he reviewed the Selah Reeve House. Since the house on the right is attached it also dates back to 1820.
East Parmenter is a street and micro neighborhood in Newburgh that is changing quickly. Habitat for Humanity is about to complete their final stage of building 2 homes this summer. This little house could easily add to the revitalization spirit that is happening here with a paint job and other cosmetic changes. The interior is a little more tricky because this is being sold with renters. It has been divided into 2 units. Also, the listing says that there is private parking in the rear, but essentially you have to drive through the backyard of the house on the left. The photos do not really help much either. They are all blurry. But all the more reason to go check it out for yourself in person.

Habitat for Humanity in Newburgh completed a home builders blitz last year on Chambers Street. This year they plan to do it again on E. Parmenter which will complete the planned East Parmenter neighborhood. Two houses, # 26 and # 28 E. Parmenter will be built in just 5 days on June 9- June 13th!
Contractors, suppliers and the general public are invited to be part of an extraordinary common purpose to share their skills and resources, or help raise funds and secure donated goods and services. The goal is to have the two houses completely built by donated labor and services with general donations making up any difference.
Material donations of lumber, concrete, windows, doors, plumbing and electrical supplies, drywall, and insulation are still needed. Carpenters are also needed to support the installation of siding, exterior and interior trim.
For more information about how to donate labor, materials or get involved in other ways, please visit www.HabitatNewburgh.org or call 845 568-6035 ext.105 or 117.
