Reaching for the Stars and Overcoming Obstacles Part 2: Wolfgang Hermann Builds His Dream House


"For me, the sun shines every day," so says Wolfgang Hermann (65). What's significant about that? Well, Wolfgang Hermann is completely blind. Yet, his condition hasn't stopped him from building his own dream house with his own hands. Hermann's three-story structure includes a view of the surrounding countryside and a swimming pool. Hermann admits that he had some help with the foundations and plumbing, but other than that, the house is his own creation. Watching Hermann operate the circular saw or walk on the roof gives me chills.
