Two playhouses built and donated by Pardee Homes and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. are featured in the 2010 Project Playhouse, sponsored by HomeAid Southern Nevada, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to partnering service providers with the building industry.
According to Klif Andrews, Southern Nevada Division president, Pardee Homes and Southern Nevada Chapter president of HomeAid, there is a high level of craftsmanship and volunteer spirit that goes into designing, building and finishing the playhouses.
“The materials, workmanship and details set these playhouses apart from anything you can buy in a store,” Andrews said. “Many of our local subcontractors and industry friends donated time and materials for this endeavor. And, best of all, anyone can purchase a $5 raffle ticket for a chance to win a playhouse and all funds raised from Project Playhouse are used to assist homeless families in the community.”
The houses are on display through March 27 at the Children’s Park at Town Square, located at 6611 Las Vegas Blvd. Tickets will be sold daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the playhouses or online at homeaidsn.org. The drawing will be held March 27 at 4 p.m.
The two child-size houses include The Cottontail Cottage, built and donated by Pardee Homes; and The Nest built, which was built and donated by Whiting-Turner, general contractor of the community’s major facilities including Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
