Paradise in a Playhouse
“Dream a Little Dream”
Pardee Homes, playhouses are not just fun and games. They’re an experience! This year was no exception as Pardee Homes completed two one-of-a-kind houses – true paradise for one fortunate child and a lucky pooch in Las Vegas. The charming child’s playhouse was named “Dream a Little Dream,” a great suggestion from a Facebook fan, and the matching pet house was dubbed “Dug’s Dog House.”
Building Houses – and Hope
The playhouse and pet house were constructed for Project Playhouse, an annual fundraiser that benefits HomeAid Southern Nevada. Partnering with local builders and service providers, HomeAid builds and renovates transitional housing for families and individuals who have been rendered temporarily homeless due to job loss, domestic violence, medical crisis or some other circumstance. Providing dignified housing is part of an overall effort to allow these families and individuals the opportunity to rebuild their lives. With more than 9,000 homeless in Southern Nevada, the need is critical.
We have a long history of giving back to the communities where we build, and that’s why we have been a supporter of HomeAid and Project Playhouse since 1997, when we donated our first playhouse in Orange County, California.
Project Playhouse, an annual event, is a creative way to involve builders, architects, vendors, trade partners and sponsors, who design and construct playhouses and pet homes. The houses are displayed in the community and later auctioned or raffled off. This year, Project Playhouse in Las Vegas featured two playhouses and four pet houses.
