what we’re building

With the support of K-Tec Earthmovers, Habitat Manitoba is building a 1100 sq. ft., five bedroom bungalow with a double attached garage alongside volunteers in a new subdivision in Rosenort, Manitoba. Located in the heart of the community, its being built in close proximity to schools, shopping, a community centre, river trails and a café. This is the first Habitat home being built in Rosenort and is sure to provide the partner family a strong foundation for their forever home in this thriving community. We hosted a community Blitz Build the week of June 6-10, and the energy the volunteers brought each day was nothing short of amazing!

K-Tec Earthmovers auctioned off a custom land scraper, an earth moving piece of equipment, that will be used to purchase new materials to build a highly efficient, carbon free home. Their loyal suppliers have donated over $50,000 worth of material to support the project. The auction took place on Tuesday, May 17, with the support of Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers who have generously agreed to waive their fees for the buyer and seller to help build this Habitat home.  We are proud to announce that the land scraper sold for $205,000.00 USD. 

“We wanted to look at different organizations that we figure can make a real impact, a tangible impact in the communities that we work in (and) that we live in,” said Shane Kroeker, Director of Strategic Initiatives at K-Tec.

“We figured that Habitat for Humanity is obviously a very reputable organization with a super strong cause, so we chose them as our charity of choice this last year. We wanted to do something a little bit unique, a little bit more special with them, something that we could put our name behind, something that we'd be all really proud of in our community.”
