FORT MYERS, Fla.- "Get rid of the old and go with the new, that's the way things are."
These are the pieces of Bob Garcia's home and what remains of his hard work.
"But in 85 I built it, just in the evenings after work, you know a piece at a time," said Garcia.
Bob and his wife, Mary, have been living in this house since the 1970's. Both their family and their house have expanded. The unsafe home had only one bathroom for all 13 people.
"Being in the construction business for as long as I've been in, it was a surprise this house was still standing actually," said Butch Ridder.
Ritter, the President of Builder's Care, along with 70 other companies, have only 16 days to build the Garcia's a new home.
"I'm sure whatever they do is going to be a million times better than what I had," said Mary Garcia.
"It's going to be like waiting for a present to be opened or waiting for Christmas to be here. And you have to wait til it gets here before you can see it," said Bob Garcia.
