(WHAS11) -- Volunteer crews in Georgia are working to build a new home addition for Aimee Copeland who lost her leg, foot and both hands to a flesh-eating bacteria.
A family friend, Rob Ponder, is an architect, and offered to design an addition to the Copeland's home to better accommodate her rehabilitation.
A local home building company, along with more than 30 community partners got together to make the renovation a perfect place for Aimee.
Ponder says even from her hospital room, Aimee had input, and her family is excited to have her home soon.
"They are very appreciative of the effort and the attention that's been paid, they're looking forward to being here, she very, very much wants to be through the institutional part of what her life has been the last three and a half months and she's ready to be home," said Rob Ponder.
The renovations should be completed in about 40 days, which is around the time Copeland is scheduled to be home from rehab.
