Louisville, KY home builder, Ken Thieneman Builder is spearheading a fundraiser to build a house and donate the proceeds from the sale to two charities: St. John Paul II Academy and St. John Center for Homeless Men. The house is being built with mostly discounted labor and materials, which means more for the organizations.

The giving house project was born when Ken Thieneman, president of Ken Thieneman Builder, was asked to help raise funds for St. John Paul II Academy. “I wanted to help, but I didn’t want to ask people for money,” Ken said. “I was however, willing to work hard and earn the money. I thought building a house and giving the profits from the sale to charity would be a good way to utilize my expertise and support St. John Paull II Academy and other charities in the community.”

The five bedroom, two and one-half bath home is being built on lot 21 of Rolling Creek, right off Fegenbush Lane. “We broke ground in December,” said Ken Thieneman, who is donating all of his time to the project. “We expect to finish the house in the spring, and we already have a family approved to buy it.”

Ken Thieneman is a custom home builder and general contractor with over 25 years of experience and hundreds of dreams turned into reality. As a second-generation home builder, his focus has always been delivering the highest quality construction at a fair price. “In other words,” Ken said, “we don't cut corners and we build each home for lifetime satisfaction.”

St. John Paul II Academy, located at 3525 Goldsmith Lane in Louisville, Kentucky is one of the premier Regional Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Louisville, and is dedicated to inspiring excellence in education and preparing students for the future.

St. John Center for Homeless Men helps homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so that they may leave homelessness for good. St. John Center is where homeless men “seek help, find hope, and move forward.”

A list of companies donating supplies and materials will be announced in the spring. If you are interested in donating supplies or materials, please contact Ken Thieneman at ken(at)thienemanbuilder(dot)com.
