Home for wounded warrior under way at Bridlegate

Special to the Courier

Southerland Communites announced this month that the new home for SSG (Ret) Ed Matayka USA and his family being constructed in Bridlegate Ranch subdivision is well under way. The framing and electrical walk-through are complete, stone samples are approved, and the windows have been delivered. Bamboo flooring is also ready to go.
HelpingaHero.org has partnered with HMC Builders and Southerland Communities, developer of Bridlegate Ranch, to build an accessible home for SSG (Ret) Ed Matayka USA, his wife Karen, and their 2-year-old twins. Sgt. Matayka lost both legs in an IED blast in Afghanistan.
The home is under construction on a 2-acre lot at Bridlegate Ranch donated by Southerland Communities. Kenny Mantor and HMC Construction are donating their building skills to make this 4-bedroom, 3-bath home a place that will allow Matayka to be independent and do daily tasks on his own. The home will feature a roll-in shower, a roll-under sink, flush thresholds, and many other adaptations to make day-to-day life easier for Matayka.
Other businesses and individuals who have made donations to the project include: Premium Overhead Door Inc., Edwin Orozco, JP Custom Trim, C.T.M.R.S., Lofton Equipment Co., Lumber Liquidators, Jim Chastain, Buddy's Septic, Block Creek Concrete Products, McCoy's Building Supply and Allan Zamora.
Some materials and labor are still needed to bring this special home to completion. That includes granite, paint, drywall, masonry/stone/stucco, hardware, plumbing fixtures, appliances, light fixtures, tile materials and labor, propane, roofing shingles and landscaping.
If anyone or any company would like to help provide any of these needs, contact Kenny Mantor of HMC Custom Homes at 830-816-5477.
