"We're painting the whole inside of the house, redoing parts in the bathroom, we're going to be replacing the flooring and lights," Meyer said. "He has no idea we're doing all of this. He thinks we're just painting the home."

Team Depot usually does about one project like this a month. By helping to install wheelchair ramps or handrails on stairs, Team Depot focuses their project on those who aren't capable of making improvements themselves.

"We typical try to gear our projects towards veterans," Meyer said. "That's a big thing for Home Depot, is to try and support our veterans. Especially ones that are elderly and can't do projects like these themselves."
