A year ago, the Board of Directors voted to approve Armando Vargas as Habitat for Humanity’s fifteenth homeowner. And on Friday, May 27, he settled on his property on Bragg Lane in Manassas.

Especially, since plans were to start with the roof! The rain may have slowed the project down but it didn’t stop it.
