Carpenters, electricians and other local trade union members and Habitat for Humanity plan to complete work on a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house by Sunday.

Habitat for Humanity spokeswoman Anne Gambino says so far, they’re on schedule. “Right now the frame is up, the walls are going up and the next step would be to put in the windows and then the trusses for the roof and tomorrow will be all the finishing touches inside so that the house will be complete by Sunday.”

Gambino says a working single mom and her two children will receive the keys to the house during a ceremony on Sunday afternoon. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit group that helps low income families achieve home ownership.
