Indiana State University kicked off construction for its second ever Habitat for Humanity house Thursday morning.
The new residence will be home to Arica Burskey and her three children, and both the family and the builders say they couldn't be happier about the project.
"We found that participating in a habitat build is really a great educational took as well as a nice opportunity for people to engage in community service," said Nancy Rogers of Indiana State University.
Burskey added: "To own your own house is the American dream, and it's something that we can't wait to have our own place. We don't plan on ever moving, we'll be here for the duration."
