Future Habitat Homeowner Looks Forward to New Home


Tremendous progress is being made on the Habitat for Humanity house sponsored by Eyewitness News.

Earlier this week, Greg Parker caught up with the future homeowner who says he has big plans.

“Whenever it’s completely finished, I get to open that door and walk in and I’ll be like, ‘this is my new home!’” says future homeowner Randy Holmes.

A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Randy Holmes.

Randy is visually impaired and extremely hard of hearing.

Because of this, Randy works with an organization called “Deaf Connections” to help him communicate.

As he feels the hands of his interpreter Crystal, she uses sign language.

Randy says he’s looking forward to having a place to call home.

On the build site, Randy is known as a very hard worker, but he says that’s because the work itself is hard.

“It’s been a big challenge for me. It’s hard, but I’ve gotten used to it now,” says Randy.

Randy says when the house is finished, Habitat can count on him to be there when they call.

“If they need me, of course, they’ll be able to contact my brother-in-law and get a hold of me. I’d be willing to help different people. I know the houses make people happy.”
