NOW: Elkhart County family of twelve getting a new home from Habitat for Humanity

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind.-Another deserving family will have a home thanks to Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County. Volunteers began building the chapter's largest home-build to date Thursday morning.

For two years, Habitat has been hunting for an affordable piece of property in Middlebury for the Kulish family.

The land, located on York Hills Drive, was purchased by anonymous buyers.

Ben and Nadya Kulish are from the Ukraine. The couple and their nine children have been living in a four-bedroom home. They moved to Goshen to be closer to their church.

Due to their faith and strong sense of family, HFH is calling this a "faith build."

Nadya frequently volunteers at the Habitat ReStore. 

"It's a great family," said Duffy Sherman, the Construction Manager. "They are all super involved right down from the little one to the oldest," Sherman said. 

Meet Nadya Kulish here:

Once the home is complete, it will have 7 bedrooms and a finished basement. The project will take about 6 weeks.

On Thursday, HFH Elkhart County teamed up with Kem Krest, a company in Elkhart, to build the walls of the future home. In their second year, Kem Krest teamed up with Hull Lift Truck and Pro Fleet to participate in the volunteer day. 

Earlier this year, Kem Krest teamed up with "Acts of Service", an initiative to get more employees involved in acts of kindness.

The Kulish's home requires a much larger team of volunteers to help with building.
