Nov 15, 2019

MATTAPOISETT — Excavation work on the first Buzzards Bay Habitat for Humanity home build in Mattapoisett started Nov. 13. On Thursday, the engineer re-staked the lot. 

The site at 153 Fairhaven Road is being called the “Jessica and David Nicolosi family build,” after the Mattapoisett couple who donated the land for the project. Once completed, the house will go to a mother and two daughters. 

Buzzards Bay Habitat for Humanity held a groundbreaking ceremony on the property in August, but permitting challenges delayed work on construction. 

Habitat for Humanity is looking for very skilled or professional volunteers to help with framing the house on weekends from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting Nov. 23 and 24. Volunteers should contact the organizers at before showing up. 

The group is also looking for volunteers who would not be able to help with framing to provide food and drinks for a coffee break and lunch for the framers. People or groups that want to donate food can also email the group.
