Pulte Homes Donates Home Addition For Aimee Copeland

ATLANTA, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- National homebuilder Pulte Homes is proud to sign on as the builder of a new 1,956-square-feet home addition for Aimee Copeland.  The home addition is expected to be completed within 40 days, when Aimee returns home from rehabilitation.

Aimee is a young woman who developed a rare bacterial infection called necrotizing fasciitis that resulted in significant health issues including multiple amputations.

The two-story space features a new bedroom, fitness room for rehabilitation, the new Pulte Planning Center – an open room with accessibility and views to Aimee's main space, and will be her study area for her continued education in psychology – and an elevator to access other parts of the home, such as the kitchen.

Pulte Homes, along with at least 30 trade partners who have volunteered for the project, are donating their time, expertise and materials to ensure that the home renovation is completed at no cost to the family and prior to Aimee's return from rehabilitation.

"Aimee's story and recovery has inspired many of us here at Pulte, and we were compelled to find a way to help," said Stephen Haines, vice president of sales for Pulte Homes in Georgia.  "It is our honor to be a part of this generous community that has rallied together to help improve Aimee's quality of life, and build Aimee's Wing.

"We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support to help build Aimee's Wing – from Rob Ponder who designed the space and the general contractor Casey Moon who started demolition of the home, to our own trade partners who stepped up to be part of this effort.  The entire team is working to build a beautiful new space for Aimee that can help her heal both physically and emotionally."
