Habitat chapter helps Vt. man move from tent to home

WINDSOR, Vt. — A Windsor man living in a tent almost 14 months after his rented home was destroyed by flooding from Hurricane Irene’s remnants should have a home by winter, thanks to the efforts of a Habitat for Humanity chapter that is building him a tiny weather-tight cabin at the crest of a small hill.

Soon-to-be great-grandfather Paul Efstathiou, 61, was living in the Woodstock hamlet of Taftsville when Irene hit last August, submerging equipment for his one-man tree trimming business. He lived by the side of the road for a few days and then lived in the damaged home.
