The London Home Builders’ Association (LHBA) in partnership with Kids Kicking Cancer Canada and with the Platinum Sponsorship and Project Management support of Sifton Properties Limited present the 2023 Green Home Build, a net zero ready home. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support so far and wish to thank everyone who has offered products, services and assistance towards this project.
After we broke ground earlier this summer, the home has been constantly changing! Watch our Instagram Stories for regular updates (Instagram: @londonhba) and visit our Facebook Green Home Build Album for project photos (Facebook: London Home Builders' Association).
Week 30: LHBA Green Home Build Update
What is the Green Home Build?
For those not familiar, the origins of the first Green Home Build were tied directly to the funding and creation of the LHBA Cancer Survivor Garden. The Green Home was innovative from the perspective of both green technology as well as fundraising. As shared by former Executive Officer Lois Langdon at the time of the build, “We were doing fundraising along the way, but costs were mounting. So, we asked ourselves: what do we do? We build. And so, we should make a house our funding mechanism.”
"It was 10 years ago that the first green home was built in an effort to fundraise to support the creation of the Cancer Survivor Garden, so it is only fitting that today we are building our second green home with the proceeds being shared by the LHBA and a wonderful charity, Kids Kicking Cancer Canada." (Jared Zaifman, LHBA CEO)
The mission of the charity is “to ease the pain and trauma of children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually and emotionally.” Through the teaching of martial arts as a therapy the young cancer patients teach other children with challenging illness and even adults how to “breathe in the light and blow out the darkness”.
How our members and the wider community are getting involved
The build is set to be a net-zero ready home and we've given our members and the wider building community the opportunity to show off their green side by partnering with us on the project. Over the last several months, the LHBA has accepted donations or best offers for "green" products and services to be used in the home. Once the home is built, we will be showcasing the businesses, products and services involved in contirbuting to this incredible cause to our entire community.
Thank you to our Green Home Build Sponsors
Without the generous support of our community and member partners, this project would not be possible. Thank you!
