Construction is continuing on a River City Habitat for Humanity house for a family of 14 in Fulton.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held for the house in March.
Construction on the home is expected to be completed by Christmas, although weather and other factors could cause delays.
No unexpected roadblocks have occurred so far, only the standard delays involving contractors and supplies.
The home is for the Gul Safi family, made up of two parents and 12 children. They will move into the home once construction is complete.
Once finished, the single-story house will be 2,569 square feet with six bedrooms.
The plot of land for the house was donated by Tom and Katherine Christensen of Fulton and Tom and Pamela Nadler of New York City.
River City Habitat for Humanity is only allowed to build one home outside of Cole County during its lifetime.
Construction is accomplished through the help of volunteers.
