Beatrice Lester's home in Milton, GA was built by Habitat for Humanity-North Central Georgia. They say it takes about 10 to 11 weeks to build a house like hers. The audio recording on this day was done during an event that Habitat calls "The First Nail Ceremony". It's when they drive the first nails and put in some of the first walls. Russell E. Hayes the Chief Executive Officer for Habitat says it's much like an Amish Barn Raising. The home of Beatrice Lester is scheduled to be completed by December 2010.
