Home built for disabled Twentynine Palms family finished

A High Desert military family that’s had to overcome severe medical conditions is spending their first night in their new home.

It was built from the ground-up in just 3 days by an army of skilled volunteers the Fuller Center for Housing coordinated this weekend.

The house was finished Sunday evening, where Debbie and Lloyd Tilch along with their grandson Cody were able to enjoy their kitchen for the first time.

Medical expenses for battles with cancers and cystic fibrosis among many other aliments have made it nearly impossible for them to own a home, that is until now.

Our cameras were there just as crews started the project early Friday morning, and the Tilch family couldn’t have been more grateful.

“I couldn’t of been blessed with a more amazing community and support system,” Debbie Tilch told us Friday morning.

“As long as we’re staying in this town I would like this house,” said Cody Tilch, Debbie’s grandson.

All the materials and time for the labor have been donated. The Tilch family will have a low cost interest free mortgage on the home.
