State Reps. Tricia Farley-Bouvier and Paul Mark presented McArdle with gifts.
DALTON, Mass. — Courtney McArdle was working three jobs trying to afford an apartment that was in poor condition, all while raising two children. 
"The house that I lived in before, the apartment, we couldn't afford it and were sinking. It wasn't insulated well. Working three jobs, I was just sinking," McArdle said on Saturday when Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity dedicated its newest home for McArdle and her two children - Avery and Easton - to live.
