Wake County families are about to gain new homes through Habitat for Humanity’s Builders Blitz. This initiative, in partnership with eight homebuilders, aims to construct four affordable homes in just seven days. The first day of construction will see the houses framed, roofed, and have all trade rough-ins completed.

The Builders Blitz addresses the significant housing cost burden in Wake County, where one in four residents earning under $50,000 annually spend over 30% of their income on housing. The project provides parents a space to create lasting memories with their children. Families are expected to move into their new homes as soon as next weekend.
