The house is going to Dena Butler, who then has to work on homes for others to qualify.  She'll also get a no-interest mortgage.

"They're going to do good, I'm not worried at all, I'm ready," Butler said before crews moved the house. "I have something to call my own."

Habitat For Humanity House Moved From Fairgrounds

The house has three bedrooms and it was built on blocks to make Wednesday's move a little easier.

The home was moved to the 2700 block of East 29th Street North in Tulsa.

Crews from Hilti finished construction of the home including the wiring, plumbing and insulation, all by the end of the state fair.

It's the first time Habitat for Humanity built a house at the fair.

"We wanted to build at the fair this year so we could bring attention to the plight of people living in poverty housing right here in Tulsa, we wanted to raise awareness," said Paul Kent, Habitat for Humanity.
