Carbine & Associates presented $102,000 to 17 Middle Tennessee children’s charities as a result of the House for Hope Designer Show House event held in March of this year. One week after opening for tour, the home was under contract and later sold with 100% of the home sale proceeds donated.
House for Hope History
The House for Hope Foundation was founded in 1993 by James Carbine and his brother, the late Denzel Carbine, as a way for builders, subcontractors and vendors to give back to their community in the build and sale of a beautiful new home.
“My brother Denzel and I dreamed of a way in which builders could give back to our community. We are so blessed to work and live in Middle Tennessee and felt called to create a way for ourselves and our peers in the building community to make a contribution. It is the American dream to own your own home. We are lucky to make the dreams of so many come true every day and want to give back to the children of our community who need extra help, support and assistance,” Carbine said. “To date, almost $700,000 has been donated by builders through the House for Hope Foundation.”
Designer Show House Celebrates Carbine’s 30th Anniversary
In 2016, in celebration of their company’s 30th anniversary, Carbine launched the House for Hope Designer Show House with the fifteen design tastemakers from four states participating and opened the Modern Farmhouse for tour in March 2017.
House for Hope Video Overview
The home tour and sale proceeds were donated to over 17 Middle Tennessee children’s charities. Here’s a video overview of the 15-month process which included national coverage from Domino magazine as well as a ton of local and regional coverage.
The custom homebuilder built the Modern Farmhouse in the new Southern Preserve neighborhood of Franklin, Tennessee with the design tastemakers from four states creating stunning interiors which helped lead to its quick sale. Also contributing to the overall donation were realtors Beth Sturm, broker for Carbine Realty, and Lori Weiss, of Chamberlain Realty, representing the family who purchased the home. Carbine also extends their thanks to the dozens of subcontractors, vendors and sponsors who helped make this project such a success!
