Knoxville's Habitat for Humanity is calling in some help as they try to put together an entire neighborhood in a week.

On Tuesday, Habitat worked with volunteers from the the Episcopal Diocese of East Tennessee to build 1 of 7 houses going up in the Silverleaf subdivision in East Knoxville.

Each family must put in 500 hours of work, or "sweat equity," before they can own the house.

During this "blitz build," all seven houses will be completed from the foundation up, and by Friday afternoon, they expect to present the keys to the new homeowners.
