SILVER CREEK, Ga. (AP) -- A woman is using her bare hands to build a house in the woods of north Georgia by stacking large rocks on top of each other, one rock at a time.

Neighbors of 58-year-old Connie Couey Reeves began showing up to help her after hearing about the endeavor.

WAGA-TV reports that Reeves has spent the last two years living out of her car on her land where the house is being built in the small community of Silver Creek.

She said she's been building the home one rock at a time, and that it's humbling that others want to help.

Among the volunteers is Jennifer Grissom, who found out about the work from her husband. He discovered the partially built walls while helping residents clean up after severe storms.
