Atlanta Habitat for Humanity was established in 1983, and is now one of the biggest Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the United States. The organization serves as the largest affordable single-family housing developer in Atlanta. As part of its efforts to eliminate substandard housing and improve access to adequate, affordable housing, Atlanta Habitat partners with working families, communities, and sponsors to build affordable, quality homes that meet green-building standards. Atlanta Habitat builds energy-efficient houses using Green Advantage construction procedures to help lower costs for homeowners while also benefiting the environment.
Along with maintaining relationships with its homeowners—starting from the application process and ending when the no-interest mortgage is paid off—Atlanta Habitat helps families to complete 250 hours of sweat equity—the volunteer time required of those who buy Habitat homes—as well as classes and other homeownership requirements.
Hauling Plus helps homeowners simplify clutter-clogged living spaces, removing unneeded appliances, furniture, carpet, and household debris. Its team of rubbish wranglers offers daytime appointments from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to carry and haul off a quarter of a truckload's worth of eight-track tapes and genie-less lamps. Hauling Plus's truck bed measures 14'x8', so today's Groupon will roughly cover the removal of 3.6 cubic feet of detritus. Hauling Plus will also schlep off excess remodeling debris, as well as yard and property waste, and it can arrange estimates for specialty assignments, including heavy items, bulk jobs, and the removal of houseguests who have overstayed their welcome.
Specializing their treatments for a variety of surfaces—from drywall and plaster to vaulted ceilings—the professionals at Armstrong Home Painting LLC instill homes with vibrant, long-lasting hues. The team seals small cracks and imperfections before painting, ensuring a smooth, finished texture, and can move furniture items to prevent errant drips from clashing with claw-foot sofas’ pedicures.
