Transcript for Girls' Night Out: Homes for the Needy
Back now with our series "Build it forward" and ABC's Abbie Boudreau teamed up to build hopes for deserving families in ten cities. Hey, guy, come on in. Reporter: For Brittany Anthony owning her home is a dream that will soon become a reality. We are at the lot of our future home so I'm so excited about it. Reporter: A single mom of four boys sharing three bedrooms in her cramped Indianapolis apartment. A new home will give them much-kneed space. Five bedrooms. Like like they have kids too. For us to have a place of our own and have a yard for them to play in. I just filled with so much joy. Reporter: Brittany is just 1 of 1,000 habitat for humanity families that will receive a house this year. A hat and, of course, our hammer. It is time to build. Reporter: I teamed up with more than 100 ladies in San Diego to kick off a ten-city girls night out event jump-starting habitat and Lowe's national build a week. A special night because you have women empowered to build. Reporter: For this night we traded martinis for hammers and cosmos for lumber and started a frame for the first story of a two-story home for a local veteran and their family and I got a crash course in construction 101. Buy a hammer that fits comfortably in your hand. When it comes to sawing and getting the perfect cut -- Don't eyeball it. Don't think you've got it. Measure twice, cut once. Reporter: While I was learning the dos and don'ts of design, 2,000 miles away Brittany had her own girls night out. In just over four hours with 16 volunteers her house frame was complete and her home finally taking shape. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. It just means the world to me and my boys, it's a dream of pine. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Abbie Boudreau, ABC news, San Diego. What a great project.
