Meth House Will be Made Over

A Lufkin home seized after a drug raid last year will soon be back on the market. The house in the Four Seasons subdivision was once a meth lab.

The house will be cleaned and remodeled by the Deep East Texas Home Builders Association starting Monday. The project is a joint effort between Habitat for Humanity, the Lufkin Police Department, and the Angelina County D.A.'s office.

Leon Stricklen, president of the Deep East Texas Home Builders Association, said, "We are, as builders, going to turn it into something really beautiful and we will put it back on the market. Habitat for Humanity will be involved with us also, plus a lot of the other community people."

Renovations on the $100,000 home will be finished in about two months. The improvements will include a new stove, landscaping, cabinets, and air conditioning system.
