New York -- Silestone by Cosentino participated in the “House United” project led by national TV personality and DIY expert Ty Pennington. As an official sponsor, Silestone provided its natural quartz surfaces for the unique home’s kitchen, bathrooms, living room, study, and utility room.
The project was a collaboration between Heroes at Home, Rebuilding Together, Craftsman, NextGen Home built by Champion andBank of America. Americans were asked to build a home for one of our country’s deserving military veterans. One half of the home was built during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. on Tue., Aug. 28 and the other half of the home during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. on Mon., Sept. 3.
Delegates, elected officials and their staff, convention attendees and media in both locations were invited to literally swing a hammer, nail 2x4s and paint walls alongside Pennington during the events. The two halves of the home built during the conventions will now be united in Charlotte in the Belmont neighborhood during October and presented to a deserving veteran family.
“We are proud to partake in the House United project,” says Lorenzo Marquez, vice president of marketing for Cosentino North America. “It is an initiative we can all stand behind and is just one way to recognize our incredible military veterans and their families.”
