The Cass County Habitat for Humanity had an open house Sunday at the home of Mang Khai and his wife Shwe Aye on Miles Street. Dozens toured the home, which was painted with natural colors and had the smells of freshly laid carpet. The Habitat board voted last summer to officially approve Mang Khai’s family as the organization’s most recent partner family. Their house on Miles Street has been undergoing renovations since January 2012. The house is the sixth that Habitat has built or renovated since 1993 in Cass County.
