Workers from Rios Brick Pavers make way for the donation of a new paved patio at Newcastle’s Habitat for Humanity community.

Newcastle’s Habitat for Humanity community now has a new paved patio, complete with safer steps, and it was all free.

System Pavers, of Redmond, donated the labor and materials to the Coal Creek Terrace development, giving the 12-home community a place to gather and a more convenient connector from the parking lot down slope to the townhomes.

The project took a little more than a week, but workers from Rios Brick Pavers, the company contracted to complete the work, stayed fed and hydrated thanks to donations from Jet City Pizza, Newcastle Fruit & Produce, Safeway and Tapatio Mexican Grill.

“Homeowners are very grateful and encouraged by the overwhelming generosity and spirit of so many people within the community pulling together,” Coal Creek Terrace resident Cathy Kramer said.

A job like this, which included an 800-square-foot paved patio and several stairs, would normally cost from $20,000 to $22,000, said Josh Erlich, System Pavers’ vice president of operations.

The Coal Creek Terrace community also received landscaping donations from Newcastle Fruit & Produce, Lowe’s and the Squak Mountain Nursery.

Andy Varyu, Habitat for Humanity Seattle-King County’s Director of Gifts In Kind, selected the Newcastle community for this upgrade, Kramer said.

“We’re really happy for you guys,” Erlich said, as Kramer presented him and colleague Dan Simons with a framed board filled with pictures from the weeklong installation.
