She was ready to move in.
"I'm just ... I still have to pinch myself," Hofmann said. "This is just fantastic."
On Sunday, Habitat for Humanity of Clay County dedicated their seventh county home to Hofmann and her sons, Cory, 14, and Nicholas, 10.
The home, located at 518 E. Ridge St., Brazil, is the fifth to be built in the city.
For Hofmann, it is one of many locations her family has lived in during the past year.
Originally from Ohio, she moved to Clay County long ago to be closer to family.
Her family's new home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. The home is 1,344-square feet in size and includes vinyl siding and electric heat. Some fixtures in the home were donated by various organizations.
"This is a very nice, no-frills house," Habitat for Humanity of Clay County member Keith Bowers said.
Construction of the home began in July 2011.
"Habitat has just been wonderful," Hofmann said. "All the people are just great."
In order to qualify for a home, applicants also have to work on the house. Hofmann said she painted the majority of the home and completed her 100 hours of work with other odd jobs.
"I'm very blessed and thankful," Hofmann said.
During the open house, officials with Habitat for Humanity of Clay County officially dedicated the home to former member Richard Lightfoot, who died in 2010.
Officials added they are able to place a family in a home once every two years.
