CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A family has a new home on Saturday night after a marathon Habitat for Humanity home built in west Charlotte.
Eyewitness News was there as volunteers started on Friday morning and transformed a slab of concrete on Morning Drive into a home within 30 hours.
The four-bedroom house was move-in ready for the Thapa family, who actually volunteers for Habitat for Humanity.
"They have worked for hundreds of hours on other peoples' homes, they have gone through classes to learn how to budget and do finances and now they are going to be homeowners," said Frank Spencer, president of the Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte.
The project was the first in a month-long celebration to mark Habitat Charlotte's 30th Anniversary.
