The summer heat may have some construction crews working shorter days, but work on a new home for veteran Cpl. Tyler Huffman's is in full force.

Huffman, a Fulton native, was injured in December 2010 while serving in Afghanistan. His injuries from a sniper bullet have left him paralyzed.

At a veteran's appreciation dinner last year, Huffman's family was offered a plot of land by Joe and Kay Twehous so that they could build a new home in the newly formed Gray Creek subdivision.
