The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom residence was built in 2007 for Daniel Gilyeat, a U.S. Marine who lost his leg after a bomb hit his truck during his second tour in Iraq, Kevin Green Homes reported. The house suffered some setbacks, which included cracks in the ceiling in 2014 that Gilyeat told Fox4 were there since the home’s construction.
