Local suppliers, vendors step up for GHBA Benefit home


Dozens of companies have stepped up to ensure a Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), Benefit home is built at little cost by donating their materials, labor and services to its construction. Most of these companies have donated to multiple Benefit homes throughout its 40-year history, as a GHBA charity fundraiser.

The most recent completed Benefit home that is on the market is HistoryMaker Homes’ Alder plan built in Sierra Vista, a Land Tejas community. Land Tejas donated the homesite. Proceeds from the sale of the home will be donated to two local charities, HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home. Since the project began, nearly $12 million has been raised. Each year, two to three homes are built for the Benefit Homes Project. The homes offer a variety of the most popular features and amenities on the market today.

Vendors donating include All Points Group, HomePro Technology, All State Brick, A C Construction, DPIS Builder Services, Excell Foundations, Universal Forest Products, Windstorm Group, Mohawk, TWI, Country Wide Roofing, Santollo Construction Clean, Up LLC, Deep Blue Comfort, Carrier, Rock Materials, Builders Choice Inc., Royal Bath /Counter Source, Flooring Services of Texas, Advantage Gutters, Factory Builder Stores, Sherwin Williams Paint, Builders First Source, Perfection Supply, Jacobs Overhead Door, Fashion Glass and Mirror, Datasmart Home Technologies, RT Masonry, Delta Faucet, Moore Home Solutions, Rosenburg Plumbing, Progress Lighting, Reyes Tar Painting, Décor Hardware and Creative Landscape and Design.

“HistoryMaker has an extensive base of vendors, suppliers and trades who are willing to give back to the community,” said Mickey Pizzitola, Houston division president, HistoryMaker. “We were honored to be able to build this home with their contributions so that two local charities will be able to change the lives of those in need.”

The Alder plan is a 3,176-square-foot-, two-story home featuring an open design with five bedrooms and four baths. This plan also showcases a downstairs master bedroom and a game room upstairs as well as a three-car garage. It is priced in the mid $300,000s.

Family owned and operated since 1949, HistoryMaker Homes launched in Dallas-Fort Worth and expanded over the decades to become a premier builder of more than 800 homes across the region in 16 developments.

“The team of HistoryMaker and Land Tejas has been solidified with the participation of so many well-known companies who have donated their materials and services,” said Terry Swenson, PR director of the GHBA. “The home is built with the features that smart home buyers are looking for and its pricing is competitive with other homes that feature similar amenities.”
