A renovation of a federal house that houses hunters for the military is about to hit a snag.
The renovation would allow a family to renovate a $2.8 million federal house in rural New Mexico.
It would take about four months to complete and it could cost up to $1 million, according to a news release from the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
Federal officials have not announced the cost of the renovation.
But the House Hunters, a nonprofit group based in the state, said it had agreed to a deal with a local group to use the house for the renovation, and the group also would pay for the repairs.
The house has a $1.2 million mortgage.
The Interior Department says the renovation is part of a broader effort to modernize buildings in the West.
