A new start

Lisa Owens thanks God for her Habitat for Humanity home on Eighth Street Southeast on Friday morning. Owens calls her home a "new start" for her family.

She also said that Mark Schwan of Habitat, left, taught her how to hammer a nail and various other construction skills, which she plans on using to help at the next Habitat home build, though she still does not intend to get on any roofs.

TVA and Decatur Utilities sponsored the Owens' home.
