Veterans Day is just around the corner and we wanted to take the opportunity to honor a local veteran, so when Citywide Home Loans asked us to join them in their annual Makeovers From The Heart event, we were excited to help out!
A little backstory...In 2014, the good people at Citywide Home Loans decided to forgo their annual Christmas party and take the money they would have spent on it to help families in need with home makeovers. In 2015 they wanted a partner to provide furniture, electronics and flooring for all the home makeovers and RC Willey took the opportunity to furnish 11 homes for the nominated families.
Which brings us to this year and a third partner, KSTU FOX 13. Through a nomination process, the Farnsworth's were nominated by their grandfather as a deserving family of a home makeover. The Farnsworth family includes Joel, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, Sarah his wife, and all their wonderful children. This military family is always helping others and was delighted to work alongside our contractors to help update their home. We initially were just going to do a kitchen remodel but we couldn't help ourselves and the project expanded to give them many updates including new carpet, paint inside and out, new windows, kitchen appliances, countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, a new dining set, beautiful sectional, new front door, a family TV and new bedroom sets/mattresses in every bedroom. Check out the before and after pics as well as the reveal video below!
Here's the kitchen makeover which Joel Farnsworth tiled himself!

The Farnsworth family is so gracious and Joel has already asked to volunteer on helping out another deserving family in the future. Take a moment to watch the video reveal below and if you'd like to join us in Makeovers With A Heart we would love to have your help! And thanks again to Citywide Home Loans for starting this annual event, inviting us to help, and for all the help FOX 13 has given us along the way.
