HistoryMaker Homes has announced that the GHBA Benefit Home they constructed in Sierra Vista is now under contract with a closing set for early August. Dozens of companies were involved with the home’s construction as they donated materials, labor and services to ensure the home, when sold, would raise valuable funds for two GHBA charities. The charities are Operation Finally Home and HomeAid Houston. Since the project began, nearly $12 million has been raised.

HistoryMaker built the two-story, 3,176 sq. ft. Alder Plan, which includes five bedrooms and four full baths, and features a downstairs master bedroom, a generous game room upstairs as well as a three-car garage.

Helping to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this charity fundraiser were the vendors and suppliers who donated to its construction. They include: Allpoints 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.


Each year two or three homes are built for the Benefit Homes Project through the generosity of the developer who donates the lot, and throughout all stages of construction to the closing. The lot in Sierra Vista was donated by the developer Land Tejas Co.—marking the 17th lot they have donated.

“We are excited the home is under contract,” said Mickey Pizzitola, HistoryMaker’s Houston division president. “We know the family will enjoy many years in this spacious design and are thrilled to acquire the Benefit Home as it gives back to those less fortunate.”

“HistoryMaker understood the importance of building one of their beautiful homes at low cost and then selling it at market cost,” said Rob Hellyer, president of GHBA. “The proceeds allow them to give back in a unique way that will benefit so many. We congratulate them for getting the home under contract and also we thank their vendors for taking on this charity fundraiser.”
