2015 HBA/DE Ramp Build Nearly Complete

This past week, the Associates Council of the Home Builders Association of Delaware (HBA/DE) came together for the 2015 Ramp Build. We learned from State Representative Carson of a very sick Air Force Veteran who had been confined to his home in Dover and was in need of a handicap ramp.

The design, supplies, and manpower were donated by the members, associates, and friends of HBA/DE. This process has spanned multiple months, from planning and preparation to construction. Several volunteers have spent the last couple of days assembling the ramp. As of today, June 26th, 2015, construction remains underway and is nearly complete except for a few finishing touches.
