Carpet One Floor & Home and flooring manufacture partner Mohawk have been spending the past year helping to build smart homes for injured veterans across the United States through the Building for America’s Bravest program. Building for America’s Bravest is a program of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, in proud partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation, which was developed to build smart homes for catastrophically injured service members.
Carpet One Floor & Home stores across the nation are raising funds, spreading the word and installing floors in all homes built by the Building for America’s Bravest program.
The smart homes built by the Foundation through its Building for America’s Bravest program are custom designed to fit the needs of each individual. The goal of each new home is to help severely injured heroes live better, more independent lives. The homes are designed to be energy efficient, automated and easily accessible.
“Carpet One has been an amazing partner for us,” said Frank Siller from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. “We know that for each home we build, we will be working with a passionate, local business owner with the knowledge and experience to provide beautiful and functional floors for these worthy individuals.”
Carpet One Floor & Home and Mohawk have already completed 5 homes and will be providing flooring and installation for each smart home that Building for America’s Bravest builds. Currently there are 46 new homes scheduled over the next 3 years.
