Larson Construction was chosen by the Extreme Home Makeover television show to build a new home for Audrey Gibbs and her six children. In August of 2000, Audrey was left legally blind after a brain aneurism left her unable to continue work as a cosmetologist. She also lost her husband just 7 months prior to this to cancer. LCCI was honored to undertake this challenge in building the five-bedroom farm-style house complete with an addition resembling a silo and a barn housing a 2-car garage in just 7 short days for this deserving family. This required planning and coordination as well as guidance to the thousands of volunteers who helped make this house a home for the Gibbs family. LCCI was 100% complete on time to deliver their dream home once they returned from their vacation in Boca Raton, FL. Quote from Ed Larson, President and Founder of Larson Construction “It was rewarding. The outpouring of the entire community and Northeast Iowa was overwhelming…They will be very happy, all of us will.”
