Garth Brooks may not have been Workin’ on a Full House" recently, but he did put a hammer to good use to help build a house in Birmingham, Ala., for Habitat for Humanity. Garth helped with painting, installing towel racks and putting the finishing touches on the house.

Garth wasn’t shy about taking the opportunity to correct some misconceptions about Habitat for Humanity and the people they help. “I really look forward to this. One of the biggest misunderstandings about Habitat is that they give away homes for free. They don’t. These people work their butts off.” he tells The Birmingham News.
