If you're strapped for cash, but still would like to be able to afford a new home, this could be the opportunity of a life-time for you.
A 3,200 square foot home is being built, and one lucky winner will be able to move in, at the cost of only $100.
St. Jude Children's Hospital is raising money to support research for children's cancer, by building a brand new home in Warner Robins. Tickets to win the house will cost $100, but the payout is a house worth about $350,000. But there are only going to be 6,000 tickets sold, so if you want a chance to win, you need to hurry and get your ticket.
Jeff Liszewski is the contractor in charge of building the new home in the Tiffany Subdivision off of Feagin Mill Road. He is volunteering his time and resources to get the job done.
"Whoever wins this house, it's not just a house. It's in a beautiful subdivision with trees, which is a little hard to find nowadays," Liszewski says.
Plumbers, electricians, and many other sub-contractors, have been working on the house since early April. Most of them are competitors with one another. But Liszewski says, when it came to helping the kids at St. Jude's, everybody just worked together.
"That's whats special to me, to see something like that come together," Liszewski said.
The house is not completly finished yet. Interior detail work and flooring still needs to be completed, but Liszewski promises that when it is finished, the house will be beautiful and fully functional.
The house will be open for viewing July 9th, and the raffle to win it will be held August 14th.
