Treat of the Day: 'Auction House' lets you choose the construction details, raises funds

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - Meet the house built by you--then sold at auction for a good cause.

The Manley Homes "Auction House" is under construction now in Austin's Colony in Bryan. As the finishing touches are put on the home, the community is invited to vote on Facebook to choose everything about the house from outside paint color to flooring to kitchen backsplash.

"It's a way to pull back the curtain of home building and home buying so people can see the process," said Bret Richards with Coleman & Patterson Real Estate. "Then, at the end, a portion of the proceeds from the sale will go to Still Creek Ranch to help boys and girls in need in our community."

Several parts of the home are still up for a vote. You can participate by going to Manley Homes' Facebook page (in the Related Links). For a tour of the home, see the video player above.

The house will be sold at auction on April 12.
