SEYMOUR (WATE) – Construction began Monday morning on a new home for a local veteran and his disabled wife.

Demolition started last Wednesday and Jim and Denise Ipson's home in Seymour.

The couple couldn't afford the cost to fix their home so LIVE-IT, a faith-based organization, stepped in.

"We came out to assess a handicap ramp for Denise, who has had several strokes, and as we did the inspection it turned out we just needed to rebuild the whole house," said project manager Jon Hawker.

60 volunteers helped Monday with the construction.

The build is expected to take five days. The reveal is set for August 9.
