Pulte Homes has announced the completion of the new 1,956-sq.-ft. home addition to Aimee Copeland’s home, called Aimee's Wing, which took 25 days to complete. Copeland is the young woman who developed a rare bacterial infection called necrotizing fasciitis. She suffered from multiple amputations and is now facing a number of health issues.
More than 200 people were at the celebration event, including Pulte Homes' employees, trade partners, various community organizations, family and friends.

"It took more than 1,500 hours and 138 people to build Aimee's Wing," said Stephen Haines, VP sales for Pulte Homes in Georgia. "It was a special day for everyone involved since they could finally see the fruits of their labor and see the decorated new space. We are so pleased to be a part of building Aimee's Wing and want to thank our trade partners who exceeded our expectations to create a space that Aimee will love."
The two-story space features a new bedroom; a sunroom; a fitness room; the new Pulte Planning Center, which will be her main study area; and an elevator to access other parts of the home. The home's exterior received new painting and landscaping features, as well as a new driveway.
