LEHIGH ACRES, FL- It was a flurry of drilling, sweeping, and sawing.
Workers scrambled to put the finishing touches on the 25-thousand-dollar home renovation. They've been working on this Lehigh Acres home since Monday.
Susan Lanzetta says, "This is the best thing that's ever happened to us."
Ron and Susan Lanzetta's home has been in a shambles for years; the roof, the gutters, and the bathrooms.
Susan Lanzetta says, "We were watching our home fall apart."
Eleven years ago, Ron was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis, making it difficult for the former corrections officer to find work.
Susan Lanzetta says, "You know, I get to watch him fall apart and then I get to watch my house fall apart."
Impaired vision and loss of balance made it impossible for ron to fix up his home.
Susan Lanzetta says, "We had a hole in our roof that's been there four years, that kept getting bigger and bigger."
Builder's care and several local businesses donated their time so the Lanzetta's and their two teenage boys can live comfortably.
The Lanzettas say, "Finally we got a break! I'm still pinching, it's still a dream."
