Morning commuters in Fort Worth saw an unusual sight Monday as a three-bedroom house moved through the streets of downtown Fort Worth from Sundance Square to the Hillside Morningside neighborhood.

“We had a great, smooth trip from Sundance Square to here, Hillside Morningside, just south of downtown. No hiccups,” said Mark Rummel, marketing manager with Trinity Habitat for Humanity.

This was the 10th year that Trinity Habitat for Humanity built a home over five days in Sundance Square. More than 200 Alcon employees, as well as the new homeowner, Janessea Leadley, volunteered in the build.

“This is not something that is just given, you have to work for this,” Leadley said. She said home ownership will be a relief and provide more time to go back to school and spend time with her family.

Rummel said the home built for Leadley is just the latest in the commitment the organization has for the Hillside Morningside community. More than 50 homes have been built since 2015 in their goal of more than 90 for the area.
