Hey everyone! Today is the last day to place a bid on the PLAYhouse of your child or grandchild’s dreams! Go to now before bidding closes! These PLAYhouse’s are on display at FRESH. All benefits of the auction go to Habitat for Humanity of Smith County.



Here at Habitat we are really excited about the PLAYhouse project. For those of you who haven’t heard about it, PLAYhouse is a  joint venture between Fitzpatrick Architects and TISD (resembling a Freshman College Level Architecture Studio) where students design and build (with professional assistance) up to 4 playhouses. These PLAYhouses are up for bid at .100% of the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity of Smith County.

These students dedicated an entire semester to building PLAYhouses and they did a fantastic job.

What I hope these students realize is they built so much more than just a PLAYhouse, they are building hope. The money from these PLAYhouses will help Habitat build REAL homes for deserving families. These homes will make a positive impact on a family for a lifetime.

Here’s the catch… We only get to help these people and build these homes if we sell the PLAYhouses. That’s were we need YOU.

I know some of you might be thinking ” I don’t need a PLAYhouse”. Very true, you may not need one, but does your church playground? Or a local school or other organizations in your area? What better way to say “Thank You” to a church or organization you’ve supported for years than to gift them with something like this! Ask your friends to purchase it with you!

Press Conference at Fresh

Habitat got to show off the PLAYhouses to the community last week at a press conference at FRESH. It was a beautiful day and we were very impressed by the students hard work!

CBS 19 was kind enough to take footage from the press conference. Thanks CBS 19!
