LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- A whirlwind effort in Longview by volunteers today, to build a house in just one day. More than 70 volunteers converged on Roosevelt Street to build Habitat For Humanity's latest affordable home for economically challenged families. The object was to completely frame, deck and roof the home in one day.

The special occasion was the 75th Habitat Home built in Longview. Habitat makes no profit on the homes and charges no interest on their 20-to-30 year mortgages.
