This deck really needs to be the model deck for all others in the county.”
We recently finished rebuilding a rotting deck of a veteran, Lester, in DeKalb County.
Lester has lived in his house for 26 years. He worked as a cook in the Army, and later for General Motors. Since retiring, he’s enjoyed spending time on the deck, reading, soaking up some sun, and cooking for friends and family. Over the years, Lester’s deck has deteriorated due to age, carpenter bees, and wear and tear. We were able to repair his deck so that he and his wife of 50 years go safely enjoy it again.
After completing the deck, we had an inspector come to the home to ensure it was within compliance. “This is by far the best deck I have ever seen,” said the inspector. “It is according to every code possible for construction. This deck really needs to be the model deck for all others in the county. You’re going to put me out of business.”
We love to receive good news like this and wanted to share it proudly. We must also congratulate Bobby, Tom and the entire Habitat for Humanity DeKalb construction team for an outstanding job. Most importantly, the homeowner Lester is extremely pleased and elated about this entire experience.
