Builders Care, Team Aubuchon, Home Depot ready to reveal renovations of Cape veteran’s home

June 21, 2013
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Donors and partners of Lee BIA Builders Care will reveal completed renovations at the Cape Coral home of a veteran after a fire caused major damage.

The project will wrap up on Monday, June 24, at 11:30 a.m. with the unveiling of the home renovations.

Teresa Meagher, 50, was living in her Cape Coral home without running water because the pipes had completely failed. Most recently, a fire in the kitchen left the house uninhabitable for a week.

An Army veteran, Meagher shares her home with her three children and husband, Michael, 56, who is a retired juvenile officer from Florida and now works for The School District of Lee County. She also suffers with a rare form of bone cancer, and her son Teddy, 18, suffers with myopathy of the lower extremities and seizures.

To help improve the home's safety conditions, volunteers renovated the kitchen and bathrooms, complete with roll-in shower and handicap accessible features as well as provided all new plumbing lines and new hard surface flooring in the living areas, kitchen and bedrooms.

The project took just 15 days to complete.

The project was led by Aubuchon Team of Companies, and The Home Depot Foundation provided a $5,000 grant through its Community Impact Grants Program to help provide materials for the project.

In addition, 24 local building-related companies donated labor and materials.

Building partners, volunteers and the Meagher family will attend Monday.
