Hilti began raising the walls on its fourth Tulsa Habitat for Humanity home on Saturday.

The new home, in the 2700 block of East 28th Street North, marks the company's largest Habitat project to date.  It's a four bedroom home for a family of seven.

The construction manager for Habitat for Humanity, Ed Knell, says the homes they build give families a sense of security and better standard of living, which ultimately raises the value of neighborhoods.

"Habitat does that in about 100 different countries around the world. They say every 28 minutes there's a house dedicated, which means completed somewhere in the world.  So habitat is doing some great things," said Ed Knell.

Normally, it takes volunteers about 10 to 12 Saturdays to complete a home; however, Hilti plans to have this home finished in 4 weeks.
