Woman's new home is a prayer answered

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - For the last six years Carol Armstrong has been living in a home that isn't wheel chair accessible, today that changed.  "I can't put in words how exactly how I feel, it's so grand, I was expecting something more humble" said Armstrong.

Thanks to the Charleston Trident Home Builders Association Carol and her family will be using the word grand much more often, in their new 2400 square foot handicap accessible home. It features spacious rooms and handicapped equipped appliances, everything that can help Carol return to a more enjoyable way of life.  "She would rely on others to do things, she lost her independence, now she has it back" added her husband James.

This house took 9 months to build cost 400 thousand dollars . The money came from friends and was donated by over 50 businesses.  "We felt that we had to do something to give back" said George Courville.  "I didn't know what to say, this house was built with love" added Caro.

Six years after her tragedy, Carol gets a fresh start, in a house built by the ones who love her most.
