Brittany did the house-hunting, and she did it all by herself. Since Drew was away at a training facility, he told the media outlet that his wife purchased the property without him, which was a total surprise. Their home, which they purchased six months after the storm hit, was in the perfect location, according to Brittany. “I loved, you know, being by St. Charles and — and having the streetcar go up and down. We’re right by a park … just the feeling of the neighborhood,” she said.
Drew didn’t mind, obviously. He saw the purchase as doing something for the greater good of the city. He added, “We felt like this was — this was doing our part in the community was buying an older home, renovating it, and making it better.”
