Habitat for Humanity National Women Build Week
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A Habitat for Humanity home has a special group of volunteers helping build it this week- all local women. It's part of National Women Build Week.

When NBC Montana stopped by the Belgrade house-in-progress on Wednesday, volunteers were working on all areas of the home, inside and out.

The Buhl family of six currently lives in a three bedroom apartment, and said being able to live in this house will be life changing.

"It's amazing to see everybody come out and actually put in their time and do it for somebody else. It's a really good feeling to see people do that," said wife Timarie.

The women volunteers said they're taking on projects they've never attempted before, like installing insulation.

They said it's rewarding work to help a family achieve their dream.

"It's a neat project and every year we come back," said volunteer with Keller Williams Realty Jennifer Morrical. "Last year we did framing, the year before I think we did sheet rock, this year we're doing insulation- so it's always a new learning experience for all of us."

The women will be working on the house every day until Saturday. The Buhl family home should be finished in June.
