HomeAid Southern Nevada to complete project
HomeAid Southern Nevada, the official outreach partner of the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association, has nearly completed its third of four custom home renovations on the New Vista Ranch home site, benefiting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The home is slated to be completed by Sept. 20.
HomeAid provided time and materials through in-kind donations from trade partners, and residential builder Toll Brothers managed the construction efforts for one of the four homes in the New Vista Ranch. The renovations and modernization include exterior paint, new cabinetry, flooring, shiplap finishes, backsplashes and countertops throughout the home. New appliances and window treatments were included as part of the project.
In total, the renovations will cover nearly 3,000 square feet for residents. The recently renovated home serves as part of HomeAid’s mission to provide safe, clean and dignified housing options to those in need. For more information about HomeAid Southern Nevada, visit homeaidsn.org.

TSK Architects staffers graduate leadership program
