Faye Washington is looking forward to moving back home. Her three-bedroom red brick house with yellow trim looks the same from the outside, but the inside is completely new.
Volunteers are drilling nails into drywall and taping together new air ducts. Washington has lived at this home for 56 years.
“This house was built in 1960 and I was born in 1960,” she said.
Washington fled her Georgetown home last October when nearly 12 inches of water seeped in the doors and windows. She said it felt like her house was in a river.
