Building a house in one day could seem like a daunting task for some, but for Habitat for Humanity, it’s about to become reality.

Siding, wiring and roofing will all be done in 24 hours, says Habitat for Humanity who is working alongside HBA Charitable Foundation. 

The house will have three bedrooms, two baths and a one car garage, says the group, within the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood. The hope is that the home will go to a teacher.

"Habitat for Humanity was not set up to build homes for our teachers, but due to the state of teacher pay in Oklahoma many of our incoming teachers, especially our single parent teachers, qualify under the HUDD guidelines for a Habitat home," Cameron Walker, executive director of Habitat for Humanity, said.

The entire home is set to be finished by 8 a.m. Friday morning.
