Craftsman unites republicans, democrats under one roof

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Sears' Craftsman brand is using the upcoming Republican and Democratic National Conventions to show that two sides can come together.

The company has teamed up with Ty Pennington of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" fame, Sears Heroes at Home, Rebuilding Together, NextGen Home built by Champion and Bank of America to build two halves of one home -- one in Tampa, Fla. during the RNC and the other in Charlotte, N.C. during the DNC.

The final home will be donated to a deserving military veteran in Charlotte. Delegates, elected officials and their staff and convention attendees in both locations are invited to literally swing a hammer, nail 2 x 4s and paint walls alongside Pennington during the events.

The Craftsman brand is encouraging Americans to get involved by visiting the "House United" tab on the brand's Facebook page at to sign a petition encouraging their state delegates to stop by each event to lend a hand.
