It was all part of Habitat for Humanity. The event was Ouachita's effort to put hard-working families in quality homes.
Over 100 volunteers were out this morning in Monroe. They want to complete the homes before the winter months roll-in. For volunteers and home owners, the experience is more than just building homes.
"It feels really good to own your own home and I like I said, when we're out here, we get the chance to meet so many people and that's what has been good for me," said home owner, Katie McClinton.
"It's a real good organization, you get to know a lot of people, lot of good people come out and help. Friendly people, we enjoy it. You couldn't ask for a better job," volunteer Charles Cascio said.
Volunteers hope to dedicate the homes to their new owners by November 15th.
