Carbine & Associates, custom builder of the 2013 Traditional Home house and the 2014 HGTV Smart Home, today announced a House for Hope project in a new Williamson County neighborhood, Southern Preserve, where 100% of the home sale proceeds will benefit Middle Tennessee children’s charities, potentially up to $100,000.

As part of the celebration of Carbine & Associates 30th year of home building, company president James Carbine said the House for Hope continues a dream began in 1993 where builders give back to their community in a significant way.

 “It is appropriate at this time of giving thanks and in celebration of our company’s 30th anniversary that we announce the first home in a beautiful new Williamson County neighborhood will be dedicated to supporting children’s charities throughout Middle Tennessee,” Carbine said

 The Southern Preserve site work is being performed by Carbine & Associates for the neighborhood located in the southeastern part of Williamson County off Lewisburg Pike in Franklin.  The scenic property will have a total of twenty home sites, each on acre plus lots, and homes will be range in price from $750,000 up to $950,000 with architectural review for continuity.

 A beautiful modern farmhouse style home, Carbine said the House for Hope, with a painted brick exterior, will be 4,200 square feet with four bedrooms.

 “Potentially, this project could yield over $100,000 in support of area children in need,” Carbine said. “To date, with multiple builders participating, the House for Hope 501c3 Foundation has donated around $600,000.”

 The House for Hope will be completed by late summer 2016 and open to the public for tour in September.

 “We are reaching out to the talented design blogger community and extending invitations to create beautiful spaces in the home as part of the home tour,”  Carbine said.  “It is our hope that some of the furnishings can be donated by companies and then later available for sale. Along with the tour ticket, the proceeds will help increase our support making an even bigger impact in helping children in need.”

 The House for Hope Foundation was begun in 1993 by Carbine and his brother, the late Denzel Carbine. Over the years, numerous subcontractors and vendors have joined the Carbine team in building beautiful homes with 100% of the proceeds helping area children’s charities.  With this long-standing record of commitment, Carbine is now marking their 30th year of building with a 2016 House For Hope in a new boutique community, Southern Preserve.

 Using transparent cost control, superior project organization and attention-to-detail, Carbine and Associates was the builder of the 2014 HGTV’s Smart Home® in Green Hills. Giving back to their community, they have donated building services for a mortgage-free house in Kings’ Chapel in partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME, a non-profit that provides custom-homes for wounded, disabled veterans and their widows. With work featured on the July/August 2013 cover of “Traditional Home” magazine, they are members in good standing with the local, state and national Home Builders Associations. NAHB Green Certified Builders, Carbine has a State of Tennessee Unlimited Residential License. More info at
