Homeowners are thankful for deferred loan program

-A A +A
By Jeff M. Hardison

RALEIGH - An elderly Raleigh couple is grateful for a deferred loan, which resulted in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home being built where their house of 46 years once sat.

Thomas Days, 71, and Delories Days, 70, both said on Nov. 8 they "feel real good" about the 1,104 square-foot house that is finished now. Their former house was in significant disrepair, including a roof that leaked.

The new house was relatively inexpensive. Demolition and removal of the old house, combined with construction of the new house cost $79,840, said Carl Dixon "Dick" Tummond III, assistant to the county coordinator. Ten contractors competed for bids in the first phase of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) project for the county, Tummond said, and this brought prices down.

Thomas Days was born in the front yard of his parents' home 71 years ago, he said. That house sat about 100 yards from where his new house exists today, and where he built the other house, he said. He moved back to the Raleigh area to build his own home almost five decades ago.
