On Friday, Diana Mores worked with FPL employees to put up walls for the home on the north end of West Palm Beach.

Plans are for her home to be completed by the end of the year.

Mores moved to Florida in 2008 from the Dominican Republic with her family. She is a single mother to her two children, 9-year-old Kedian and 4-year-old Zoe, and works as a lead server at Club Tipico Dominicano.

As rent and home prices continue to run, Mores said the house is something she only was able to dream about.
