In a world where the focus is generally on profit margins and finding ways to improve the bottomline, one residential homebuilder is looking for ways to give back to the community.

Pacific Lifestyle Homes,, Vancouver, Wash., a residential homebuilder for the northwest region, has announced the sale of its Community Giving House, a 3,672-sq.ft., four-bed/2.5-bath home in the historic Erickson Farms area of Vancouver. All proceeds will go back to the community through local charities.

Pacific Lifestyle owners Kevin and Nicki Wann say a major goal for them in 2014 was to make a positive impact in their region. By enlisting the support of a number of subcontractor partners and a local credit union, which waived project-financing costs, Pacific Lifestyle will meet its charitable objectives once the home closes in January.

Proceeds from the Community Giving House will benefit organizations such as Transitional Youth,, Beaverton, Ore., a faith-based organization that aims to support and provide housing for at-risk and homeless youth; The Children’s Justice Center,, Vancouver, Wash., which provides a place for child victims of abuse in the surrounding Clark County; and The Children’s Center,, Vancouver, Wash., which provides community-based mental health services for youth and families.

As the economic recovery continues for the residential construction sector, many companies are searching for wise investments in technology solutions to help safeguard their future. In addition to these investments, construction companies can search for equally wise investments in their local economies by supporting the community that keeps them in business.
