Home For A Hero Groundbreaking | Holiday Builders
Home Builder Value Homes
Last week's Groundbreaking ceremony for Sergeant John Goudie and his wife Kristi was the perfect example of a community coming together to show appreciation and respect.

The Reason Why

Holiday Builders is thrilled to partner with Building Homes for Heroes to build a home for Army Sergeant First Class John Goudie, his wife Kristi and their three children. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Building Homes for Heroes for gifting homes to wounded veterans across the country. For John Goudie's complete story, visit the Building Homes for Heroes website. The home is being built in Windswept Estates, a lovely golf course community in Freeport, Florida. There is a link for donations on the Building Homes For Heroes website for anyone wanting to contribute to the project. 

Community Support

The Groundbreaking was scheduled to begin at 10 am on Thursday, May 6th. We knew that staff members from both Building Homes for Heroes and Holiday Builders would be onsite, along with John and Kristi Goudie. We had sent out a notice to the head of the Windswept homeowner's association with the hopes that community members might attend. A great number of community members attended as well as the Mayor of Freeport.

A New Home

Once the ceremonies were over we had a chance to visit with John and Kristi Goudie and talk about their future home. They said they were thrilled when Building Homes for Heroes contacted them. What we didn't know was that the Goudie's had actually considered building a home with Holiday Builders before and were familiar with our floorplans and design options. 

The Goudie's are also getting some special assistance from Builders Design, the design firm contracted by Holiday Builders to decorate model homes. The Goudie's new home will not only be gifted to them mortgage free, it will come furnished and professionally designed.

The Goudie's will not be permitted to visit their homesite until the reveal ceremony currently planned for September. The Groundbreaking was a pre-cursor, a formal kick off for the building of the home. Given the excitement each of us fortunate enough to attend the groundbreaking, the reveal ceremony will be a very emotional and rewarding event.
