Valdosta, GA -- September 15, 2011
Building a house is hard work, but when you do it for a good cause - it's easy.
"I've done a little bit of everything," said Tim Mabry. "Helped put the walls up, the rafters up, did some roofing."
Almost half of the volunteers working on this house are soldiers from Moody Air Force Base, but Tim Mabry may be the most dedicated worker on this project-- that's because when it's finished, this is going to be his home.
"Personally I really don't think I deserve it, but I guess I do," Mabry said.
This is the 5th build Tim and his wife Miranda have done with Habitat for Humanity, but this time it's their turn.
The house has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 19-hundred sq ft plot of land.
Times may be tough, but for the Mabrys, the future just got a little brighter.
