Habitat House Cottage Charm

When Dot Cada bid on this cheery playhouse built by an all-female crew of volunteers at a Habitat for Humanity fund-raising auction, her granddaughter Chloe was just 7 months old. She wanted to support the organization and knew Chloe would grow into it. "I thought she was way too young to appreciate the house," says her mother, Chryss Cada. "But she crawled right to it and sat down on the front porch with a look that said, 'Finally, a place of my own!'" Seven years later, Chloe and her little sister Neve, 5, play in the house almost daily and even grow veggies in a garden their father built for them out back. Now their mom says, "I dread the day they outgrow it!"
