Veterans build house for Sun Prairie mom

The veterans are working with Habitat for Humanity

MIDDLETON, Wis. — Local veterans worked for hours Wednesday, building a house for a local mother.

Ashley Burdick, a mother of three, has been working towards owning a home for years. The veterans, working with Habitat for Humanity, are making her dream come true.

“It’s an opportunity to realize it’s a dream for someone,” volunteer Marcia Anderson said. “Homeownership has gotten out of reach for a lot of people in this country and habitat helps people reach that dream.”

The veterans build the frame of the house outside a Middleton business today, and they will move the frame to its permanent location in Sun Prairie at a later time.
