June 2021 Newsletter: The Orting Veterans Village is Open, Our 5 Year Anniversary, and a new Travel Trailer!

We can’t believe we have been in business for 5 YEARS!! We’ve worked on so many cool projects for so many incredible customers. We’re just hitting our stride and our best work is yet to come!


The Orting Veterans Village Recently Opened

We are still so honored and humbled to have been a part of this amazing project with Quixote Communities. Thank you to everyone who has followed along over the past year as we built and delivered the thirty-five homes and a community center for this village. It took a village to build this village – from different companies and organizations to volunteers and donors. It is heartwarming to see the veterans start to move in and know that they have a safe and warm place to live and support from case managers and their community. 

Below are a few building memories, from the start of the project to news coverage about the village! We hope you enjoy these memories.

“If you watched the Orting Veterans Village Grand Opening Celebration, you may have caught a special song at the end of the program. Board of Directors President, Joe Shorin, reached out to the music group The Lucky Valentines to write and perform a song to welcome our new veteran villagers. We invite you all to take a closer look at the song “Make a Home” and meet The Lucky Valentines.”
