Builders Circle: The Framing Begins – Photos

Framing was the order of the week at the HBA of Greater Springfield / Habitat for Humanity Builders’ Circle Project this week. Below, find photos of the efforts of members of the HBA Board of Directors and Remodelors Council. Matt Bailey, Galin Campbell, Adrian Rhodes, Kevin Clingan, John Harp, Jared Carr, Jaredd King, Kevin Pridemore, Mike Benna, Jason Bekbrede, and Jason Davis were among those who joined Project director Scott Kisling as HBA members working on the site. Special thanks also this week to Herrman Lumber and Meek’s – The Builder’s Choice for supplying framing materials. Also a big ‘thank you’ goes out to the members of Fellowship Bible Church in Rogersville, who learned some advanced green building framing techniques when they volunteered to help on the project all day Saturday.

Enjoy the photos!

Wednesday morning September 7th HBA Builder Members begin the framing process and take a little doughnut break. Doughnut breakfast supplied by the HBA of Greater Springfield. We believe in a healthy breakfast to get the day started. Click the headline if you can’t see the photos.


In January 2011, the HBA of Greater Springfield announced it would partner with Habitat for Humanity of Springfield to build the first two homes in Habitat’s new Builders Circle development. The homes will be certified to the National Green Building Standard and their construction will serve as a demonstration of flexible and affordable methods by which construction professionals can build green in a residential setting.
Home builder Scott Kisling, himself a Certified Green Professional (CGP), is managing the project on behalf of the HBA. Here, Scott’s Builders Circle Project Blog helps keep HBA industry professionals and curious consumers up to date on the latest green building features being incorporated into the project. The blog also provides updates on the project’s latest progress and upcoming needs. Those who would like to help with the project are encouraged to leave their comments at the end of blog posts. Or, e-mail Scott directly to offer your assistance.
