Local builders in the doghouse for a good cause

This year, the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association has created 12 doghouses to help raise money for its No. 1 charity, HomeAid Southern Nevada. This year it opted for what it calls “Barkitecture.” Some builders went all out with miniature infinity-edge pools and rooftops decks.

The doghouses were unveiled March 20 at a special event in Downtown Summerlin.

The doghouses will be displayed there and auctioned off online at snmc.com/barkitecture.com through May 20. All proceeds go to support the charity’s efforts.

Participating builders include Beazer Homes, KB Home, Lennar, Pardee Homes, Pulte Homes, Richmond American Homes, Shea Homes, Sun West Custom Homes, Toll Brothers, William Lyon Homes, Woodside homes and Security National Mortgage Co.

HomeAid Southern Nevada was founded in 2004 and came under the association’s management in 2017, said Nat Hodgson, the SNHBA’s executive director.

The charity rehabs and builds shelters for the homeless in the Las Vegas Valley.

“I got my competitive builders to come together for a great cause to raise awareness and money for our charity,” Hodgson said.
