ANTIGO (WAOW) -- A Langland County family of nine is preparing for a big change. The Blaise family will be moving into a brand new home. Its all thanks to Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Builds who helped the family construct and finance a new house.

Rick and Tammy Blaise and their seven kids spent hundreds of hours working along side volunteers to make their dream a reality. The five bedroom, two bathroom home is a big upgrade from where they live now, an older, cramped one bathroom house.

Rick says he's thrilled his kids will have more space to study and play. "They get to have things that I never had. I want them to have more than i had and I'm glad to have this chance to live in a nice house" says Rick.

 The family will move in on Sunday. Then, like any other homeowner, they will make mortgage payments and pay other expenses like heating bills.
