Jose and Tanya Costa, and their 12 children, celebrate their official move-in today!
Today marks a special day for the Costa family where they take their first official steps into their new built home.
Modular Homes is happy to be a part of this pro-bono project in partnership with Habitat for Humanity GTA.
Building this new home for this lovely family of 14 has been touching and rewarding! Their long awaited home is now echoing with their heart-melting smiles and laughter.
We wish the Costa family a future home that is warm and filled with love – just as we have intended it to be as we build it!
Toronto, ON – On July 30, 2014, Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area (Habitat GTA), in partnership with Modular Homes, will celebrate the completion of the Costa family home by presenting the family of 14, with keys to their new home located at 828 Runnymede Road, near Jane St. and St. Clair Avenue West, in the Runnymede area of Toronto.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jose, Tanya and their children into their new home and community,” says Ene Underwood, CEO, Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area. “Homeownership will now allow the Costa family to provide a stable, loving environment for their family.”
Jose and Tanya Costa can’t lay claim to monetary abundance, but consider themselves rich with 12 children. However for Jose and Tanya, providing for their family, including four children under the age of twelve with special needs due to autism, has been a challenge. Since Jose immigrated to Canada from Portugal, and Tanya for the U.S.A, the two have worked tirelessly to provide for their family. The main problem is, their house is falling down around them. While they were willing to move, they didn’t know of any other place that would take them. For a family of 14, renting is not easy.
“Purchasing a Habitat home will change all of our futures. We will not only have a home of our own, but we will continue contributing to Habitat’s mission by helping build homes for other families in need of a better future.”
Through the support of corporate sponsors, Habitat GTA was able to provide this affordable home with the donation of the exterior of the home by Modular Homes. Habitat GTA volunteers then completed the interior and landscaping of the home.

We want to thank Matt Gurnery of the National Post for this wonderful feature on Modular Home Additions this week! We are honoured!
“Modularization….is a different process. The components are still made rapidly inside large facilities (like the one I arrived at unannounced), with machine precision and in climate controlled environments, with all the attendant advantages of speed, quality and cost effectiveness. Waste is minimized, energy saved, and safety enhanced” To read the full article, please click here !
Thank you again to Matt Guerny!
Yesterday’s event was nothing less than a touching and memorable way to set the course for Spring and the upcoming warmer months. The Costa family, in our pro-bono project for building this wonderful family a new home, greeted Modular Home Additions with high gratitude and appreciation.
In partnership with Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area (HFH DTA), we have marked the beginning of constructing its largest home to date. A family of 14 that previously lived in a five-bedroom home with only one washroom, now eager and relieved to finally reside in a new beautiful house of 8-bedrooms within their budget.
Jose and Tanya Costa, with their 12 children, each wore hats with the Modular Home Additions logo proudly as Habitat GTA welcomed them while announcing all the wonderful new features their home and community will hold. Media also gathered for the event to celebrate the wonderful occassion!
Now more so than before, we look forward to building this new home for this touching family. After seeing at face value how wide-eyed, eager, and blissfully happy each of the 14 family members were as they absorbed the skeletal view of the house, leaving to their imagination as to what the final product will look like, we are confident to making their dreams turn into their reality!
