Habitat Builders Blitz homes taking shape


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Habitat for Humanity Building Blitz in Wilmington is moving right along.

Today, workers and volunteers put shingles on the roofs, added siding to the houses, and put up walls.

Families say they will never be able to thank those working to build their homes enough for all their hard work.

"It's a feeling I can't describe," soon-to-be home owner Alecia Shepherd said. "It's just being built so fast. Reality really hasn't hit me. I guess when friday comes, everything will come together, but I'm just really excited right now."

All five homes are expected to be completed by Friday, just seven days after work started.
