The Macon Area Habitat for Humanity turned over the keys to its seventy-fifth home in 25 years.
At a ceremony Tuesday, Habitat for Humanity leaders dedicated the home to new owner Milton Webster, a U.S. Army veteran who suffered a disabling bite from a brown recluse spider six years years ago.
Doctors amputated part of Webster's left leg, and he spent two weeks in a coma.
"At one point I didn't think I was going to make it, I though it was over," Webster said.
Webster survived the poisonous bite, but says he did not think he would be able to realize his dreams of becoming a homeowner.
"I'm still dreaming," Webster said, "I can't believe it."
