We’ve got a great project this fall, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, that will give you the opportunity to build a “Home for a Hero”. After a devastating house fire, the Hunter Family of Gainesville, GA decided to give their house lot to Habitat for Humanity, specifically designated for a Veteran. While the search continues for the qualifying Veteran, we begin to build and prepare for their move in, this Christmas!
