Sunday was a day of giving and building in Blacksburg.
Habitat For Humanity of The New River Valley got almost 500 volunteers to donate their time to this year's "Blitz Build."
That's where most of two homes will be built in two days.
Those houses are located on Nellie's Cave Road in Blacksburg.
Both homes will be energy efficient.
One will be a typical stick build while the other will be made with isulated panels.
But for the families, it's all about having the American Dream.
Students from Virginia Tech and volunteers from around the region came out tp help..
More are expected Monday .
Neither home is fully funded yet.
