Illinois REALTORS® began building a house for Habitat for Humanity in Springfield Monday, May 19, 2014, as part of a plan to build three houses for the charity this year.
IAR President Phil Chiles, who came up with the idea for the Illinois Association of REALTORS® to conduct the builds, was at the site directing work.
The build in Springfield kicks off as work on a similar home in Murphysboro, Ill., is winding down. Work there is scheduled to be completed by May 31, 2014.
A build in Aurora will begin July 7, 2014.
