Remodeling Creates an Opportunity for Charity

Posted: 29 September 2011

We're excited to give away a lot of near-perfect and new materials to help others realize goals for their homes. We're doing this through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity and their ReStore.*

 

Over the years, we’ve collected all sorts of odds and ends from our showroom and our remodeling adventures. Additionally, our vendor partners have occasionally sent some great quality product samples or displays that either haven’t made it onto our showroom floor or are have only been briefly displayed. As these items hadn't been the right fit for any of our client projects so far, they had been put into storage.

As home improvement junkies and design fanatics ourselves, we know how exciting it can be to add pieces such as these to our homes, particularly if you originally believed them to be beyond your reach.

 

We contacted Habitat for Humanity and spoke with them about donating these building products to benefit our local communities and about partnering together on future projects, to recycle lightly used materials that are demoed from our clients' projects.

 


The first step in our partnership was the Habitat for Humanity ReStore truck pulling up to our showroom and design studio to pick up a large donation. We gladly loaded up the truck with windows, doors, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry and a lot of other miscellaneous hardware and parts.

Our entire company and even our client base has been excited by this partnership with Habitat for Humanity ReStore. In fact, we have several clients who intend to donate their gently used kitchen cabinetry and appliances to make way for new kitchen remodels.

 

Be sure to stay posted for details as we help our clients give back to our local community, and help make someone else’s home a dream come true.
