Correct Craft employees helped build a house in Florida for Habitat for Humanity during the May 14-15 weekend.

Thirty-five employees from Aktion Parks, the Orlando Watersports Complex and Nautique Boats volunteered with Habitat for Humanity to build a home funded by the Orlando Watersports Complex for a central Florida family.

Located in the Butler’s Preserve community, the home started on May 14 as just a concrete slab, but was transformed by the Correct Craft employees, who were able to install all of the walls and roof trusses, the company said.

Construction will continue until October, when a single mother from Honduras will receive the keys to her new home. This is the fourth Central Florida Habitat for Humanity home that Correct Craft companies have funded and volunteered to help build.

“I am incredibly proud of our teams from Nautique, Aktion and OWC for their hard work on this house; it demonstrates once again that we have an incredible team that not only wants to excel at their jobs but also work together to make life better,” Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement.

“The past four years Correct Craft companies, Nautique Boats and OWC have been honored to fund the building of four Habitat for Humanity homes, and we are thrilled that our employees have also embraced this worthy cause.”
