Habitat for Humanity grants a new lease on life to one family devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Operation Home Delivery started with a thousand volunteers constructing prefab walls on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Now those walls are a home shell for the Carrington family in Louisiana. It doesn't stop there. Crew leader Jillian Gross has only five more days to lead a team of volunteers in a "blitz build" so that the family can move in.
"I Want That" on Fine Living
Episode: "Tables as Art"
• Sept. 27, 6:30 p.m. ET/PT
New designs for tables and desks are sure to bring some pizzazz to living rooms and home offices. An innovative floor mat will add style to your kitchen...as well as some comfort to your feet. And educational shower curtains will make bath time fun and help the kids learn a thing or two.
