“We feel privileged to be able to do a project like this and be a part of something that will bring lots of joy to wish kids and their families. Being able to use what we know in our profession to make good things happen with an organization like Make-A-Wish is truly remarkable,” said Mike Kandra of Edgewood Homes, which will build the house.

Here's a look at how that's progressing.

This year’s home is a whopping 3,138-square foot modern farmhouse, and it has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and a 3-car garage.

Proceeds of the event benefit Make-A-Wish, OKI and the HBA’s Charitable and Education Foundation (HBACEF) and the HBA Charitable and Education Foundation. Make-A-Wish grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

The Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana Chapter has granted more than 17,500 wishes since it started in 1983.
