Work coming along on new Fuller Center Bossier home

Fuller Center volunteers paint new home

Work is coming along on the Fuller Center for Housing's second Bossier home. It’s located at the corner of Nina and Youree Street.

Volunteers helped put up the frame on Mar. 8.  The home will belong to Lonnie and Rosalyn Carmack.


Lonnie is a Navy Veteran, who fell on hard times.  Now he's turned his life around, and he's excited to become a homeowner.

 

"I think I'm ready to move-in,” said Lonnie Carmack. 
“I can’t wait.. Everything is going good. It's on schedule. So, hopefully by May I'll be in here.”

 

" I love it, my own home,” said Rosalyn Carmack. 
“It's beautiful. It's been a blessing.”


It’s the second home dedicated to Katy Watkins, an Asbury United Methodist Church member who died in a car wreck in 2006. Asbury UMC members have provided much of the volunteer labor and in-kind donations toward the home’s construction thus far.

 

On Mar. 22, about a dozen volunteers painted the home, and put in the insulation. The home is set to be finished by May  1. Volunteers are needed on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
