Women Build Weekend 2019

Hundreds of women. Dozens of power tools. One old house. Join us for a fresh new spin on Women Build!

A fundraising event for Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties

Event Information

12:00am Friday, May 10, 2019 to 12:00am Saturday, May 11, 2019

Join us for our 9th annual Women Build Weekend on May 10th and 11th - a two-day extravaganza of women, construction, teaching, training, learning... and bringing new life to one very old house.

This year, we're taking Women Build where we've never gone before - back in time!  Join us as we tackle the deconstruction and renovation of an 1860's Greek revival-style home on Slaterville Road in Ithaca.  We'll host workshops, led by female instructors, covering various topics of old home construction, repair, and preservation.

And, if you attended Women Build last year, you can see the wall panels that we built get put to good use!  With Mother Nature's cooperation, we'll be working on the deck and possibly even raising those wall panels up to begin construction of a new Habitat home.

We'll delve into the old, we'll begin something new.  Bring a friend and join us for a Mother's day weekend you won't soon forget!

About the Organization

Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties

Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties (TCHFH) builds decent housing in partnership with families in need of affordable homes.

TCHFH is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all. We are part of Habitat for Humanity International's global, nonprofit housing movement operated on Christian principles that seek to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope.
