WATM is looking for veterans who've made their homes epic
We Are The Mighty is looking for veterans from across the country who have gone above and beyond to make their homes epic and unique places to share with their family and community. These can be home additions, renovations, new constructions, or anything else as long as they are home areas designed to bring people together.
Tree houses, bunkers, outdoor areas, and other spaces are also great.
We’d love to hear your stories about construction, community, and the military experience.
If you or someone you know has a home they’d like to highlight, please collect the following and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Photo of the house or area
Selected homes will be featured in a WATM series that will feature homes and communities that meet at them.
