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 http://www.32auctions.com .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!
