APPOMATOX COUNTY (WSLS 10) - Rebuilding Hope entered its first full week of construction on Monday.

After starting on Friday, volunteers with God's Pit Crew are ahead of schedule building Nancy Harris' new home.

Project manager Warren Johnson said "A lot more people showed up, so we had 30 to 40 people on Friday and Saturday. And instead of getting to the point of floor system and maybe the walls built, we actually got the roof trusses set and it completely dried in just two days."

Johnson says on Monday, the decks are being built as well as a handicapped ramp on the back for Harris.

Crews also plan to begin the electrical work on Monday.

Johnson said there is still plenty of work left to do over the next two weeks until this house is officially done.
