Lynchburg area lawyers and judges traded in their briefcases and gavels for hammers and table saws Saturday, as members of the Lynchburg Bar Association helped construct a new home with Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity.

The team of attorneys and two local judges spent the day alongside Habitat volunteers “winterizing” a new home in the Diamond Hill neighborhood.

The three bedroom, 1,150-square-foot home is scheduled to be completed by the end of March and will house a single-mother and her two young children, according to Donna Vincent, the executive director of Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity. The one-story energy efficient home will feature a living room, kitchen, laundry room and porch.
