People from both Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties are teaming up to help two low-income families become homeowners.
Dozens of volunteers with Habitat for Humanity were busy Saturday on Phillips Lane in San Luis Obispo. Habitat houses sell for about $100,000 each and a zero percent mortgage. Organizers say the two families could not be happier.
"The two families that are moving in, one has three children the other one has two children, well one and one on the way, baby is due about the time we dedicate the homes," said Julia Ogden, executive director for Habitat for Humanity.
Each home is about 1,000 square feet with two to three bedrooms. The rain and a lack of state funding delayed the group's progress a bit but the two houses will be finished by mid-May.
