  • The Tuckers’ future residence was funded through community members at Brays Island.

The walls are up and the Tuckers will soon have a new house in Seabrook.

Lowcountry Habitat for Humanity recently raised the walls on its 46th local home build along Trask Parkway in Seabrook.

Sheryl Tucker and her son Keyvon will be the proud owners of a new house that was sponsored by fundraising from the community of Brays Island.

”I know there are thousands of Habitat homeowners out there, but I feel like I’m the first,” Tucker said. “I am so happy to finally see my house. I am smiling so hard that my cheeks hurt.”

The mood was jubilant as volunteers got together for the wall-raising on March 3.

Lowcountry Habitat volunteers were joined by a group visiting and working with the organization from Neumann University in Philadelphia.

Habitat for Humanity’s collegiate challenge is a year-round program where groups of students give up their break to spend one week working with Lowcountry Habitat and partner families to help eliminate poverty housing in Beaufort.

Follow progress on the home build at www.lowcountryhabitat.org and the group’s page.
