Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity began building its first home in Idaho Springs on Sunday.
“We’re just very excited to get started on this,” Blue Spruce director Kathleen O’Leary said. “It is the first house west of the (Veterans Memorial Tunnels) for us, so we’re very excited.”
The home is the first of many that likely will be built in the county over the next several years, O’Leary said. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit Christian housing ministry that offers affordable homeownership to low-income families.
