"Seeing the pride of home ownership in Lewis & Penny Pettapiece and the excitement on the faces of their four children has been a true gift. That is payment enough for me for the countless hours I invested in this project. I think, without a doubt, this has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done."
Beverly Mulligan - Women in Law
"I am filled with pride at the incredible accomplishment we, as a company and as people who care about our communities, achieved. This campaign has brought out the best in our creativity, dedication, and passion. It has been especially moving for me as I have been on site four times and watched the houses build from the ground up. I do encourage everyone to do a build day as every ache, bruise, blister and scratch pale in comparison to the feeling of building a house for a deserving family."
