Excitement is buzzing at Artemis House‘s emergency shelter as the finishing touches on so many great improvements. Thanks to Van Metre HomesVM Home SolutionsHome Design Elements and 16 trade partners for donating almost 100% of the materials and services necessary to renovate Artemis House’s emergency shelter for Shelter House, an organization provides crisis intervention, safe housing and supportive services to promote self-sufficiency for homeless families and victims of domestic violence in Fairfax County.

Their expansive renovation was completed over the course of two months and included so many great improvements including building two bedrooms with a full bathroom in the basement, knocking down an upstairs wall to group two very small rooms into one family sized room, updating all the bathrooms with tile floors and a granite vanity, replacing carpet, installing hardwood floors and security cameras, putting in all new appliances, and much much more!
