They said they'll continue their construction efforts throughout the summer by helping build a home on Denton Street.

"I am kind of am an empowering woman. I like to do things on my own. It's nice to have other woman who are collaborating with you and giving our strengths to what we do," said Habitat for Humanity volunteer Heather Suby.
