In Spring 2014 we had six homes entered in the Parade of Homes. We had homes from Custom Woodcraft Builders, Loren Wood Builders, Gentry Group, Rubicon Custom Homes, Beazer Homes, and Habitat for Humanity.
Comments that we saw over and over again stated that patrons loved the variety of homes and that all of the homes were different, and that the small details in each home were what made each one of them unique. Loren Wood Builder’s home was praised over and over for the sliding exterior door on their indoor/outdoor living space. The decorations in the Gentry and Beazer homes made them stand out and feel “like home.” The 29 foot poplar beam in the Custom Woodcraft Builder home seemed to astonish the patrons. The heartfelt story of the family moving into the Habitat for Humanity entry seemed to resonate with many.
The Rubicon Custom Homes unique style and modern decor won them the coveted People’s Choice Award. Beazer Homes edged out with the Realtor’s Choice Award with their spacious floor plan and curb appeal.
All of our builders did excellent in the execution of their homes, and we are very proud of all of them. The Committee would like to thank all of our participating builders for their beautiful entries. They would also like to thank the following sponsors: ABC Supply Company, American Family Insurance Nicholas Delaplane Agency, Associates Four Services, Black Lumber Company, The Bloomington Board of Realtors, Bloomington Paint & Wallpaper, Carpets Plus Colortile, Commercial Service of Bloomington, Economy Fireplace, F.C.
