Lennar Rebuilding Home

This fall, Rebuilding Together of the Triangle (RTT) is partnering with Lennar Homes to improve the home of Gordon and Mary Jeans in Apex, NC. Gordon is a disabled Gulf War veteran, and remains active in the community despite his limited mobility. He and Mary are both from Apex, and are committed to remaining a part of their neighborhood and community. Gordon was approved for a large grant from the Veteran’s administration to make modifications to the home, but the grant required that other improvements be made to bring the home up to code, which pushed the cost of the project out of reach for the Jeans.

Lennar stepped forward to help fill the gap for the Jeans family and after waiting for nearly three years, together with RTT, Lennar and its extensive network of vendors are working together to fully remodel the home, complete with a new master suite, to be accessible for Gordon. The renovated home will also be built to modern efficiency standards, eliminating the high electric bills they family was experiencing.

The project is slated for completion in February 2019 and we’re right on schedule!

Like other homes of the time, the Jeans’ 1250 square foot ranch was comprised of small rooms, the kitchen, and a small narrow bath - all with limited accessibility.

When we’re done, there will be an open concept common area - including the kitchen - plus we’re adding on a large master suite with a fully accessible bathroom and closet on to the back of the home for a total of about 1750 square feet.
