Local Raleigh Home Builders Give Back to the Community
The 29 custom Raleigh home builders that have come together to form the Triangle Builders Guild are committed citizens of the Triangle and consistently give back to the community.
In fact, the idea for the Triangle Builders Guild began in November 2002 when six founding members of the Guild joined other builders and vendors to fund and construct 12 Habitat homes in Raleigh, NC. Through their work together they realized the possibility of mutual benefit in combining forces as independent custom builders in the Triangle.
The first Habitat Builders Blitz in 2002 was the brainchild of Triangle Builders Guild member Tom Gipson, of Thomas Gipson Homes, Inc. The Builders Blitz program has been successfully replicated in 130 cities across the United States with 458 homes built nationwide over the past four years.
Woody Yates, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, says “We are honored that the Triangle Builders Guild – comprised of many of the leading and most highly respected builders in the Triangle – has chosen to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Wake County. We are grateful for their support and for their determination to give back to their local community by helping to eliminate poverty housing.”
Collectively, the Guild members give their time and services to Habitat for Humanity, helping to build an additional 24 Habitat homes in 2003 and 20 more in 2006. In addition in 2006, Triangle Builders Guild members donated over $40,300 to Habitat for Humanity.Download PDF 59k
