Operation FINALLY HOME along with Highland Homes, Ashlar Development and the Greater Houston Builders Association built a mortgage-free home for the American Hero and his family

HUMBLE, Texas (December 6, 2018) U.S. Marine Corporal Michael Byrne and his family joined representatives from Operation FINALLY HOME, Highland Homes, Ashlar Development and the Greater Houston Builders Association on December 5 to celebrate the dedication of their new, custom-built, mortgage-free home located in The Groves in northeast Houston, a one-of-a-kind master-planned community.

The special dedication ceremony included comments from honored guests and the Byrne family, a color guard performance from the Patriot Guard Riders and a check presentation from Ashlar Development that will cover the family’s HOA fees for the next year. Following the key presentation, Michael and family walked into their completed home for the first time. They were surprised and thrilled to see the home fully furnished, donated by Highland Homes and the fridge and pantry fully stocked, thanks to H-E-B.

The Byrne family was surprised with the news they were receiving a mortgage-free home in The Groves during a special groundbreaking ceremony June 29. The community wrote “Notes of Love” on the studs of their home September 26 before they were wrapped in dry wall. The Byrne family will now feel the love of the community each time they walk into their new home.
