Three New Children's Homes-Real Wood Floors
A group of flooring contractors and salesmen associated with Real Wood Floors volunteered their time and talents to lay the new wood floors in House of Promise, House of Love, and Zachry House. The walnut flooring was donated by Real Wood Floors. The team of nine guys finished all three homes--over 7000 sq-- in five days. We were stunned by the beauty of the floors and amazed by their speed and skill. We so enjoyed our time with these guys and look forward to their return visit!
