Elderly Navajo couple finally gets a new home

An elderly Navajo couple who waited years for a new house finally got one, courtesy of the Stardust Center for Affordable Homes and Family at Arizona State University.

Mary and Kee Augustine applied for housing aid several times but were turned down. But they received help from the center, which build an energy efficient hogan-like structure for the couple in Nageezi, New Mexico.

The home was constructed out of FlexCrete that was donated by the Navajo Nation.
