In this Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012, photo, a customer walks past building products at a Home Depot store in Nashville, Tenn. U.S. builders started construction on more homes in August, driven by the fastest pace of single-family home construction in more than two years. The Commerce Department says construction of new homes and apartments rose 2.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 750,000 last month. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)
