Build Love project makes Regina family’s home more accessible

Build Love project makes Regina family’s home more accessible

November 14, 2018

Last week, a Regina family finally got the chance to see how their home was transformed as part of the first-ever Build Love project.

Vienna Kennedy, the 8-year-old daughter of Liana and Jared Kennedy, has a congenital syndrome which limits her mobility and has to use a walker to get around. Upon purchasing their home, the Kennedy family knew that several renovations would be necessary to make it more accessible for Vienna.

Brandon Fuchs with Superior Contracting and Derek Wu with Collaborative Construction heard the family’s story and were inspired to help.

Right away, Fuchs and Wu began working on the logistics of completing the Kennedys’ renovations through donations and volunteer work.

After months of hard work, the home was finally unveiled Wednesday.

The home’s interior looked nearly unrecognizable to the Kennedys. Walls had been removed, and Vienna’s bedroom and bathroom had been expanded so they were more accessible, among other smaller details.

“Everywhere you look, you can just see the fingerprints of love here. Every detail,” Liana said to the builders. “You’ve done the big things and the little things, and it’s amazing.”

These changes will allow Vienna to become more independent.

“For me, this day means an opportunity for change in our community,” Fuchs told CBC News. “It shows we can unite for one cause and give an amazing gift for the Kennedys.”

Fuchs promised more plans were in motion for future Build Love projects in Regina.
