SPANISH LAKE, Mo. - It was all hands on deck in Spanish Lake Thursday.

Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis gathered volunteers, local leaders and home buyers to raise the first wall in a mission to construct five new houses in the community.

A blitz of building will start in June, and it's hoped the homes will be ready for their owners by Thanksgiving.

This project includes Habitat's 350th house in St. Louis.
