As part of this year's Home Builders Blitz, Habitat for Humanity will feature live Webcams and blogs tracking the progress of home construction. The new features will be up for the duration of the building event, which started Monday and lasts through Friday. The live Webcams will be in four U.S. cities: Denver, Oklahoma City, Portland, Ore., and Raleigh, N.C. The blogs will be written by professional builders taking part in the event and will cover 10 cities.
The 2006 Home Builders Blitz, the single-largest one-week build in the organization's history, will include more than 1,000 industry professionals constructing 400 homes in 130 locations over five days.
