USMC Sergeant Beck - New Home in Time for Christmas
The Home at Last Project builds homes for wounded veterans who return from service with severe disabilities. The homes are made possible through donations and partner organizations who donate money, manpower, and expertise in the acquisition of land, as well as the construction of homes that meet the special needs of wounded veterans and their families.
Located in Winter Garden, the ninth Home at Last Project was constructed by Winter Park Construction (WPC) and Hensel Phelps in partnership with a long list of suppliers and vendors. WPC has been part of all nine homes and Hensel Phelps has been part of 8 of the 9 projects. The 3,784 square foot home features a 3-car garage and includes five bedrooms and four bathrooms to accommodate the large family for which it is being built.
