The Building Industry Charitable Foundation, Kosair Charities and YouthBuild Louisville revealed the custom-built playhouses to the Corbett and Bromley families on Thursday, June 28th during an unveiling event on the YouthBuild Louisville Campus. Mayor Greg Fischer addressed the crowd and spoke about how projects such as this are yet another example of how compassionate Louisville residents and businesses are toward one another. The Building Industry Charitable Foundation Playhouse Project is truly a collaborative effort with Kosair Charities and YouthBuild to build custom-designed playhouses for Kosair Kids.
This year’s recipients were the twin boys of the Corbett family and young daughter of the Bromley Family. The Corbett’s worked with Registered Builder Pat Durham, Pat Durham Builder, to design a castle fit for kings! Interior Design was provided by Lisa Lynn Knight, Lisa Lynn Designs and included some of the boys favorite characters included Mickey Mouse, Sponge Bob, and more. Shortly after entering the playhouse for the first time after the big reveal, both boys shouted “Thank You” after seeing the furniture, toys, and finishes built especially for them.
The Bromley family received a playhouse built by YouthBuild students under the direction of Registered Remodelor Brandon Bailey, Bailey Remodeling & Construction. After entering the home for the first time, its young recipient stuck her head out the front door with a smile one-mile wide to share her excitement with on-lookers. Her playhouse is complete with a working sink and granite counter tops, a lofted bed, a white board wall for art projects and lots of play space. Interior design was provided by Liz Wilson, Liz at Home.
Both playhouses will be on display during Homearama, July 14-29. The Corbett Playhouse will be on display at Rock Springs and is sponsored by River City Bank. The Bromley Playhouse will be on display in Shakes Run.
