Six East Tennessee families have a new place to call home, thanks to a week of intense work by volunteers.

Knoxville's Habitat for Humanity handed over the keys to the new homes Friday afternoon. The ceremony wrapped up the organization's annual multi-house building blitz.

Since last Saturday, volunteers transformed concrete slabs in the Silver Leaf subdivision into six different homes for families in need.

"I feel so good; I've been wanting this for a long time and I have two grand babies so I can't wait to get them a swing set," said Terrlyn Robinson, home recipient.

Volunteers, Covenant partners, family members and staff worked the past seven days to complete the six homes.

Habitat for Humanity says its homes are affordable for families in need because they're built by volunteers, sold at no profit, and financed with a 25 to 30-year, zero percent mortgage.
