 2017 Local Project Update

DreamBuilders will help rebuild this Ellicott City home this summer.

After the horrible flooding that occurred in Ellicott City, Maryland on Saturday, July 30, 2016, DreamBuilders decided to select the town as a location for our local projects this year. DreamBuilders attended meetings with local organizations that were pooling resources to help. Early this year, thanks to the networking of DreamBuilder Cathy Gold, we partnered with Rebuilding Together Howard County. Rebuilding Together received a number of applications from homeowners and businesses that did not have flood insurance. 

Together, we picked a home on Main Street, up the hill from the downtown area, hit hard by the flood. We surveyed the home, identified needed repairs and divided the project into work funded by Rebuilding Together or work undertaken by DreamBuilders. Rebuilding Together prepared and submitted a proposal to the Ellicott City Historical Preservation Commission, since the home is in the historical district.

We're pleased to report that the Commission expects final approval for the project in early May. They were flexible and very grateful that we are helping rebuild the town. Based on this, we plan to schedule one or more weekend work days in late July and August. The project includes:

- replacing all of the windows in the home

- repairing the external walls and installing all new siding

- repairing all the gutters and downspouts

- completely gutting the kitchen, installing new drywall, flooring, cabinets, applicable, and plumbing

Watch the web site for updates. We will also send emails to our email distribution list as we get closer to the dates.
