LAFAYETTE–A family is celebrating Christmas a couple of weeks early.

The Young Family received the keys to their brand new home tonight. That home was built by Habitat for Humanity. The group also hosted a home dedication for the Youngs.

The family spent more than 300 hours building their own home. Now, the Youngs say they are happy to be able to live in it.

“They help me with learning about being a new homeowner,” Roneka Young said. “They helped me learn about the loans–like, everything I needed to know about being a new homeowner, they helped me with. So I’m very comfortable now with owning a home. Before I wasn’t ready, and now I feel like I’m really ready.”
