LANETT – The Building Sciences Department at Auburn University has completed a small house for the Chattahoochee Fuller Center (CFCP) project and is about to complete a second one.
“We’re very excited about this,” Kim Roberts, CPR executive director, told Valley Times-News. “We plan to place them side by side not far from Plant City Baptist Church in Lanett. They will be ideal places to live for a single person or a couple. They are not very large (around 280 square feet) but are fully furnished. We should have them here in 45 days.
Applications are now being accepted for anyone interested in living in such a house. They are available at the ReUse store on Gilmer Avenue in Lanett.
“Both homes will be small but extremely nice,” Roberts added. “Both will be fully furnished with heating and air conditioning, a washer and dryer, a very nice kitchen area and a mezzanine with a queen-size bed.”
CPR expects a very busy time in late summer and fall. Work begins Monday on much-needed home improvements for former Auburn school resources manager Michael “Officer Robo” Robinson.
“We will be building a new bathroom with a roll-in shower and a master bedroom,” said Roberts.
Agent Robo was a popular school resource officer in Lee County, but was recently shot down by a series of strokes. He is in a good mood even though he cannot move around as he once did. The bedroom in the current Robinson house is upstairs.
Robinson and his wife are in dire need of a downstairs bedroom and a bathroom with a roll-in shower.
During the week of October 4-8, CPR will build two new homes on Higgins Street in West Point. The Stuck family from Pennsylvania will travel to direct the construction.
