BSC Partners with Operation Finally Home to House Another Wounded Soldier

Members of the Building Systems Councils  met up in Charlotte, N.C. over the weekend to help build another home for a wounded veteran through the Operation Finally Home project.

Operation Finally Home, along with the BSC and other volunteer groups, gifted Army Staff Sgt. Anthony Feaster and his family the mortgage-free home at a surprise unveiling on Sunday, Oct. 5.

The family pulled up to the home’s construction site under the assumption that they were looking at a potential lot they could receive if selected for the Operation Finally Home program. They were definitely not expecting to see the beginnings of their new home.

BSC members and other volunteers worked hard to transform a simple concrete slab into the framework for the family’s new home. And it was done within three days thanks to the efficiency of building systems technology. (See photos below.)

Once complete, the planned 3,000-square foot, ABA compliant home will provide Staff Sgt. Feaster the accessibility he needs, along with plenty of space for his family. The builder expects to finish the home before the 2014 holiday season.

The BSC along with the Cabarrus County BIA, Niblock Homes, the Structural Building Components Association and Operation Finally Home, have been working on this project for a year, soliciting donated materials and labor to build the home and gift it to the recipient completely mortgage-free.
