Have you ever wanted to build your own house—specify the size, features, finishes, layout, and more—without, you know, having to actually pay for a new house? Well, now you can! For the first time in East Texas history, social media users get to determine the end result of a new home, simply by casting votes! Here’s how it works and how you can get involved.
Meet “The House Y’All Built”
Cast a vote, build a house! That’s the principle behind The House Y’All Built, a home-to-be located in Lindale, TX and sponsored by your own Leslie Cain Realty. Voters are able to determine major features of the house, like the front door, square footage, wall and floor colors, tile patterns, and more. Two polls have already closed, with hundreds of votes cast!
What’s Already Been Determined?
The voters have spoken! We’ll be building a 2,500 square foot Farmhouse style home with an exterior of blue charcoal stone and highston brick.
Didn’t get to vote? Don’t worry; there are still plenty of decisions to be made! Cast your votes now!
Why the House Y’All Built Project?
At Leslie Cain Realty, we’re all about the Lindale community. The purpose behind this project is to unify that community and highlight Lindale as a city. When The House Y’All Built is finished, it’ll be sold, and the proceeds from the listing commission will be donated to the Hope Haven of East Texas, a non-profit organization devoted to providing residential care services for girls in need.
Who’s Building the House (Besides Y’All)?
We approached local builder Regan Burgess of Legacy Home Builders for the job. He joined on, saying he loved “the idea of having people involved with the building process. It’s going to allow people an insight of what goes into building a home.”
Regan started his building career working alongside his father, a local home-builder, framing and trimming outhouses, building cabinets, and everything in between. He then spent three years in commercial construction before starting Legacy Home Builders.
Other Partners of The House Y’All Built
We can’t do it alone, and neither can Regan! Some of our other partners include Cassity Jones and Interiors and Flooring of Whitehouse, who will provide some of the materials for building the home.
Want to Get Involved in the House Y’All Built?
It’s not too late to cast your vote! Social media polls for The House Y’All Built are currently open to the public, and we’d love for you to put in your two cents. You can also follow our progress right here.
