LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A man who was once homeless is building his dream of owning his own home. Habitat for Humanity is building the new home on Breckinridge Street in Smoketown.
This week, Norton Healthcare volunteers stepped up the effort to help make it happen. The two-story house with three bedrooms should be ready by February.
Kenneth Davis, who is receiving the home, said Friday, "I've been waiting on this for 54 years now. Living with other people, it's not comfortable, not like having your own...and once was homeless, going from that to homeowner that's something to be excited about."
Davis says he's been putting in his 400 sweat equity hours as part of the Habitat program. He says he has big plans to build a garden next to the house.
