HistoryMaker Homes and Land Tejas are partnering on a GHBA Benefit Home, one of three being built in 2019. HistoryMaker’s vendors and suppliers stepped up when the request was made for donations of materials, services and labor to ensure their Alder Plan would be constructed with minimal cost.

Proceeds from the sale of the home will be donated to two local charities, HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home.

The home is being built on a homesite donated by Land Tejas in Sierra Vista. This is Land Tejas’ 17th lot donation for the Benefit Homes Project.


Each year two to three homes are built for the Benefit Homes Project with donated land, materials and services by GHBA members. The homes offer a variety of the most popular features and amenities on the market today. They are sold at market value and proceeds benefit HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home.

Since the fundraiser began 39 years ago, over $11 million has been raised.

Mickey Pizzitola, HistoryMaker Houston Division President
“We are excited to participate in the Benefit Homes Project by building our popular Alder Plan. We value the work that the two charities who will benefit, provide our community. It is an honor to work with the Land Tejas team and our generous vendors, trades and suppliers.”

The Alder Plan is a 3,176 square foot, two-story home featuring an open and spacious home design with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. This plan also showcases a downstairs master bedroom and generous game room upstairs as well as a three-car garage.

Family owned and operated since 1949, HistoryMaker Homes launched in Dallas-Fort Worth and expanded over the decades to become a premier builder of more than 800 homes across the region in 16 developments.

M/I Homes recently sold its Benefit Home in Bridgeland, and Chesmar Homes sold its Benefit Home in NorthGrove.
