Helping Hands

At Atlantic Southern Paving we take pride not only in our work for our clients, but also in our work for others. Most recently, we went with The Home Depot to help them on their Habitat for Humanity Project. They were partnered with Sea Island Habitat for Humanity (SIHFH) for their 2012 Community Building Invitational, which took place in the beautiful Johns Island, South Carolina. Sea Island Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1978 and built only one house in its first year. It took $2,500 just to do that! By 2010, they built 275 in Johns Island and the surrounding areas.

For many of these folks, this is their first time owning a house, but it doesn't come cheap. They are required to make a down-payment, contribute 500 hours of "sweat equity" and pay for thier brand new home through a 30 year, 0 interest mortgage. Atlantic Southern Paving was more than willing to help these folks and had a great time doing it!
