It’s always amazing to see a home come together.
I mean, that’s what keeps us glued to every HGTV show until the last three minutes! (You do that too, right?)
But seeing a home come together is extra amazing when there are literally hundreds of people behind it and it’s transforming the lives of families.
Edgar (pictured below) is one of these families. He bought his Habitat home in Capitol Hill last fall and moved in with his two daughters, Natalia and Sofia.
“I saw the houses built by Habitat and was amazed with the attention to detail that goes into them; from the interior details, to the care and thought put into the design so that families not only have a house, but LOVE their home.”
