Bob Granata's Conway home was destroyed while he was trying to take down a tree in the yard with neighbors in August.
Granata's friends and church family rallied around him and decided to help him get a new home.
They started Bob's House for Bucks and just six months later they've almost accomplished their goal.
" I t's a new beginning, it's a new start," said Granata.
Granata was surrounded by friends as they broke ground on his new house Saturday morning.
"We have a plan, we have a building permit, we've removed the old mobile home which was a big task in and of itself. So we're ready to start building," said friend, Clint Hardwick.
They've almost raised their goal of $20,000 , but they're still short.
