Simply Custom, the semi custom division of Sasser Construction, a Portsmouth based home builder, is building The Tidewater Builders Association Charity House to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia. The home will be on display at the 2010 Spring Homearama, set for Founders Pointe in Isle of Wight County May 8-23.

When the home is sold, proceeds will go to the Boys and Girls Clubs to help fund programs aimed at helping at-risk young people succeed in school and realize their potential in life. The agency operates 10 Club Units throughout the region from Franklin to Exmore on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.

Sasser Construction, an award-winning company whose Southern Living Idea House is currently on display in Suffolk’s Riverfront community, has a long history of community service. Among other projects, the company built out the Maryview Foundation Health Care Center that provides care for the uninsured and was the lead builder for the 2008 Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build in Suffolk, after building a Habitat Home in the Portsmouth Blitz in 2006.

Tidewater Builders Association and Simply Custom by Sasser Construction are currently seeking donations of products and services to offset the construction costs for the home. The home is a 3,300-square-foot transitional style home with a first-floor master suite, a two-car garage, and a view of the marsh on Batten Bay.

Anyone who would like to help is asked to call Sandra Figeac or Kelly Melton at 757-484-6075.
