Earlier this week our team attended the Olympia Master Builders Tour of Homes Award night at Little Creek Casino. We are very pleased to announce that we won the ‘Peoples Choice-Best of Show’ and the ‘Judges Choice-Best Kitchen’.
The project we had entered into the 2009 Tour of Homes was a Builtgreen Level 5 Craftsman style, built on the prairie south of Olympia. Our designs were based on the client’s childhood memories of her grandmother’s house. She wanted a home that felt as if it had been around for a long time and one that typified the charm and craftsmanship of earlier times.
Along with wholesome design, the millwork and finishing details really make the home feel as though it’s been a family house for many generations.
One of the primary ‘green’ aspects of the home is that it was entirely insulated with sprayed on icynene foam. This has superior air sealing qualities, which makes the home inexpensive to heat or cool and very comfortable for the homeowners.
We are grateful to the Olympia Master Builders for hosting the 2009 Tour of Homes, it’s no small effort to manage this event! We are also glad to have been able to participate with other local builders. We look forward to 2010 Tour of Homes!
