Woods' home photo courtesy of Lowes contest page
A local man has won a Lowes 100-thousand dollar home makeover sweepstakes.
One of four winners of the Facebook contest is William Woods of Christian County. Woods is a Fort Campbell soldier and was among the top vote-getters in the country in a contest where entrants made their case as to why they should receive a home makeover from the home improvement store giant.
Woods wrote in his entry that he and his wife moved into a 175-year old “fixer-upper” home a few years ago and that necessary projects often go unfinished before he has to be deployed again.
Woods was selected as one of ten random finalists last month and the public put him over the top as a winner. Woods’ wife, Karri, says in a Facebook post that the couple will make the house their forever home when he retires.
