— Habitat for Humanity volunteers are building a home in southwest central Durham with all-LED lighting, which uses less electricity than fluorescent lighting.

Construction of the home, which is being built with help from LED manufacturer Cree, began Saturday at 1015 Moreland Ave.

The home’s future owners, the Rahlan-Ksor family, are also helping construct the house. They are refugees from Vietnam and hope to move into the home by the fall.
