Built for Edgar and Edgar Axcel Preciado Larios
The family story: Edgar Acxel was born with cerebral palsy. Edgar and Edgar's mother eventually separated when Edgar went through a rough time of drug abuse. A few years later after Edgar fought his addiction his ex-wife came back into his life and Edgar gained custody of their son Edgar Acxel. Edgar bought a piece of land on credit. With money from wood he sold from his land, he bought a van which he parked on his new property; and he and his son lived in that van until some people helped him to build a house. Edgar works in different places, but does not have a steady full-time job and earns approximately $165 a week. A new home for Edgar and his son will change their lives forever and is truly a dream for their future.
