Life can often take unexpected turns, but it’s not often that several land in someone’s lap during a single year.
Over the course of 13 months, Twyla Gendron lost her mother, her job, her health and the most heart-wrenching blow of all, her husband, Larry McCabe.
If it weren’t for the support from two longtime friends and an HGTV host, she would have lost her home too. I visited Twyla’s Cliffside bungalow while Scott McGillivray and his team of contractors turned a rundown basement into a home-saving income suite.

Catherine Porter paid a final visit to Twyla to meet her new tenant, and to report on one final act of kindness from Income Property host, Scott McGillivray.
FINAL UPDATE: June 28, 2013
Scott McGillivary and his crew finished the last step, a city mandated driveway for the new apartment. Read about it here at the Twyla Project blog.
Way to go!
