Habitat for Humanity Dedicates New Family Home Designed by Fisher Architecture LLC
Posted on - November 6, 2015
SALISBURY, MD – November 2, 2015 – Fisher Architecture LLC, a locally owned, experienced architectural firm providing functional design and construction solutions to clients, announced the dedication of the newest Habitat for Humanity home at 735 E. Isabella Street (formerly 200 Naylor) in Salisbury, Maryland.
The design of the 1 story, 3 bedroom and 1.5 bath home was an in-kind donation from Fisher Architecture LLC to Habitat for Humanity of Wicomico County. The design of the home allowed builders to take advantage of efficient construction practices and provide an opportunity for the family to easily maintain the home for years to come. This is the third design Fisher has donated to a Habitat build.
“We believe in the Habitat mission of providing opportunity to make home ownership a reality for anyone,” said Keith Fisher, Fisher Architecture LLC. “When a family works hard to invest in their future with support from the community it makes the end result something to be proud of and cherish that much more. Fisher Architecture is happy to be a part of this process and moment in time for the Zickafoose family.”
The Zickafoose family was selected as the Partner family for the Isabella Street home. Wayne and Susie Zickafoose have been married for 46 years and have raised their grandson, Kevin, since he was a baby. The Zickafooses, who are disabled, lived in Crisfield for the past 16 years and made the move to Salisbury to access health services for their grandson’s learning disabilities.
The fundraising for this house was been led by Susan Megargee, Owner/Broker of Re/Max Crossroads and the Realtors Build 2014 initiative. The Zickafooses were chosen after a rigorous screening process that looks for people who are low income, have a need for decent housing and are willing to partner with Habitat to build their home. Ability to pay is also important because Habitat sells the family the home with a 30-year, no-interest mortgage.
“Not only will having their own home enrich the lives of the Zickafoose family,” said Megargee, “but they will be playing a part in the revitalization of the Church Street neighborhood.”
