Area builders and subcontractors donated their time to complete the job. After just a day of work, the structures of the homes had been completed and much of the electrical system had been installed.
The homes will be donated to families who qualify for Habitat's program. Owners will be able to sign a zero-interest loan for between 20 and 30 years. Officials say most mortgages end up costing residents less than $400 each month.
The future owners will also spend a few days this week helping build the homes. They will also be required to take a series of home ownership classes that teach personal finance related to owning a home.
