A Tulsa family woke up Monday morning in their "Miracle House." That's what the builders named the home in the 1100 block of East Queen during dedication ceremonies Sunday.

A group of men who call themselves the "Miracle Workers" say they were bored with retirement. So they started building homes for "Habitat for Humanity."

Gary Casteel with Habitat for Humanity: "Literally, we wouldn't be over a hundred houses now if we didn't this group working on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Fridays and Saturdays. I've stopped really saying the Tuesday morning. I've just called them the miracle workers now."

New homeowner Tiffany Lewis: "Oh exciting. I'm really excited, and we can't wait to move in."

The miracle workers have built 12 houses so far. The family of five who moved in here also put a lot of hours to help build their new home.
