Cornerstones, Herndon, 2017

  • Cornerstones

    HomeAid Northern Virginia, Builder Captain Miller & Smith, and trade partners have completed a $70,000 renovation of a townhome owned by Cornerstones, and a single mom and her four children moved in on September 1 to start their new lives.

    “This family moved from a shelter, and this is the first long-term stability these children will know. We look forward to working with the mom on her short term and five-year goals—for herself, her kids, and her finances—so that she can reach self-sufficiency; this house will provide such a solid foundation for her and her kids,” said Tierra Faggins, asset manager for Cornerstones.

    The home was in bad shape, and Miller & Smith and its trade partners gutted much of the interior, ultimately renovating and updating the kitchen and bathrooms; replacing laundry appliances, roof, interior flooring, and exterior walkway and patio; repainting the entire interior; and updating electrical and plumbing systems.

    “There were a lot of surprises behind the walls with this house,” said Scott Alford, vice president of production for Miller & Smith and the project manager for the renovation, “and we won’t ever just Band-Aid over hidden problems. This house is going to be solid for years, and we were proud to have been involved in its renovation – it’s always an honor to work with HomeAid.”
