Carolyn knew it was time to do something about her floor when she had to move heavy furniture off of it and avoid walking on it altogether. Fearful she would fall through and injure herself, she turned to Asheville Habitat’s Home Repair program. She was no stranger to Habitat because Carolyn served as a ReStore volunteer for four years.
Carolyn’s family home was built in the 1940s, and like many older homes, water damage is a problem. Water damage caused the floor and wall to rot, creating an unsafe living situation.
