COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – One lucky Columbus homeowner received a home makeover thanks to volunteers from the House of Heroes and Home Depot.

Karen Shubert's dream is coming true as crews renovate her home. The House of Heroes usually sets aside $1,500 for repairs, but thanks to a Home Depot grant, $10,500 was applied for the renovations.

"I was just elated. I can't describe it. It's just wonderful. It really is," said Shubert.

As Shubert and her daughters help volunteers she explains how she wishes her husband, SSG Jurgen Schubert, could see all the changes.

He was a 16-year veteran who passed away in 1998.
