More than 30 volunteers crowded onto the construction site, helping out where they could.
Some cut two-by-four boards to the specific lengths for the frame of a house. Others hammered those pieces on to place the sub-floor built over the pre-poured foundation.
They came from local businesses and churches with one goal — to build a new house for a family in need.
With the help of 11 local businesses and churches, Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County will complete its 10th build this fall. Though businesses, churches and non-profit groups have contributed money and volunteer labor since the organization started, this has been the most comprehensive and well-organized effort of area industry, executive director Lee Ann Wilbur said.
