For Pedro Soto Jr. and his wife and two children, helping to build their new home is a life changing experience. The Soto's will be moving from their 35 year old mobile home into a Habitat for Humanity House in Continental.
Putnam County Habitat for Humanity board president Chas Myers says all of the homes they've built are energy efficient.
Construction Manager Paul Recker says the Energy Star 3.0 standards require them to seal the house tightly and at the same time allow for fresh air flow throughout the home.
