Project completed!

The Veterans’ Housing Project, also called the “Seneca House,” kicked off a two-day celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house in Eugene on Wednesday, May 13, 2015.

In late 2014, Neil Kelly Company and Seneca Sawmill Company joined forces to support the Veterans’ Housing Project (VHP), a program that creates affordable housing opportunities for military veterans and their families as they transition back to civilian life. The two companies donated design skills, construction management and lumber to build a new home in Eugene’s Fairgrounds district.

Designed to the highest standards, the Seneca House includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths along with a custom kitchen featuring donated cabinets by DeWils, a local cabinet company.

Construction of the house would not have been possible without the generous donations of:

Seneca Sawmill Company, Tolbert & Associate, Branch Engineering, Associated Design, Kipco, Stringfield Lumber, Relco Truss, Bonn Roof Care, Continuous Gutters, Home Depot, Milgard Windows, Emerald Door and Glass, West Lane Supply, Comfort Flow Heating, INSUL 8, Kevin Cohen Plumbing, Eugene Plastering, DeWils Cabinets, Meltebeke Homes, Worldwide Granite, Imperial Floors, PK Painting, Broomstick Cleaning, O&S Contractors, and Bill Boffing Concrete.

Neil Kelly would like to thank all those who participated in this project and those who continue to support our nation’s veterans.
