Habitat builds house within a house in Whitehall

WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - Habitat for Humanity is known for building houses but how about a house within a business?

This is a display home, still under construction, inside the group's second-hand store in Whitehall.

Habitat says it's doing this, in part, to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

The inside of the house will be decorated with furniture that's available for sale at the shop, but the exterior will be used for a different purpose.

"The outside of it will have information about Habitat and our mission, our partner of families that we work with, volunteers and all the wonderful community partners that we have," said Jent Kolepp, the store manager.

The display home measures about 12 by eight feet.

It's on display now; you can see it at the Restore shop, on Grape Street in Whitehall.
