Habitat for Humanity builds six houses in three days at Point Breeze

    Habitat for Humanity challenged four local builders to put up six houses in three days for low-income families in Philadelphia’s Point Breeze community.

    More than 40 volunteers from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters participated, along with Habitat Philadelphia, partner families, and other general volunteers.

    The time lapse video above, provided by Habitat Philadelphia, compresses three days worth of work into 10 seconds.
