Sharlotte Robinson and Mia Stevenson of Fort Wayne are cousins, and now they’re also neighbors.

The two women, Robinson, 38, and Stevenson, 25, Friday afternoon received keys to their new homes in Fuller’s Landing off Cook Road – the 199th and 200th houses constructed by Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne in its 30-year history.

Their two-story, three-bedroom houses are nearly identical, although Robinson’s has tan siding and Stevenson’s gray.

And, no, the two women said Friday, they didn’t plan it that way – although they’ll be happy to reap the benefits.

“It just happened to happen,” Stevenson said, while her father, Michael Stevenson, carrying a framed picture upstairs, made one of several trips from a stuffed-to-the-gills SUV and a dozen friends and relatives shared the celebration.
