"Blitz Build" Will Give New Family Home In Two Weeks

A family's new home is being built in just two weeks with the help of hundreds of volunteers from Tyler businesses.

Construction began Monday morning at Habitat for Humanity's Business Blitz Build on South Baxter Street. In just two weeks, the home should be complete, and ready for Carrie Bonner and her family to move in.

More than 200 volunteers will be working on the home, with members of the Bonner family helping as well.

Christopher Bonner, Carrie's son: "I'm more happy to see my mom in a home she can own for herself. That shoots "stars" through my heart and it sets me at peace."

The home is going up in two weeks. The average construction time for a Habitat home is four and a half months. When the home is complete, Carrie Bonner will buy the home with a 0% down, zero interest rate mortgage.
