Online Exclusive: The House of Hope

Written by Stacy Brasher in the October 2010 Issue

Started by the Central Oklahoma Homebuilders Association (Homebuilders Care) several years ago, The House of Hope fundraising project was not built for the past few years due to the economy. However, this year it has returned in grand style.

Completed in September, The 2010 House of Hope is located in Rosewood Estates in Edmond, Oklahoma at 2813 NW 173rd Street, near NW 173rd and May Ave.  The home has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a 3 car garage with a total of 1,824 square feet.

Authentic Custom Homes volunteered to build the house. “We are really excited about this project. COHBA allowed us to choose the charity in which to donate all profits to,” said Brandi Woods.

The first $10,000 raised will fund a Christmas party for the children at Children's Hospital. “Many members of COHBA get together to purchase gifts for the children of Children's Hospital, as well as their siblings - and the gifts are presented at the party,” said Woods. “We will also be sponsoring a ski camp in Colorado next spring. We are hoping to send 30 children to this camp.”

This ski camp was started by Mr. Cavett - who has been a pastor at Childrens Hospital for several years. “The children who will be able to attend this ski camp have overcome many obstacles in their life including illness, blindness, or amputated limbs,” said Woods.

Many companies are donating to this project - including Kirkpatrick Bank, American Eagle Title, Paradigm Realty, and many more.  “We have had several companies come forward and donate to this home,” said Woods. “The home has glass vessel bowls as sinks in each bathroom, fantastic lighting, wood floors, custom cabinets with glass in the upper portion, a pocket office (which is a new concept that builders are doing around the country), a barrel ceiling in the entry way, a dome in the alcove (both the barrel and the dome are painted by a local artist), a walk in tiled shower in the master bathroom... and these are just some of the extras inside the home!  It really will be a home that everyone will have to visit in order to see it all.”

The House of Hope will be open during the Parade of Homes held October 9th through October 17th. For more information on the Parade of Homes, visit  For more information on the House of Hope, please contact Brandi Woods with Authentic Custom Homes at 405-818-9321.
