Homes by Avi wins Builder of the Year!

So things have been pretty chipper ‘round these parts of late.  Maybe it’s because the kids are back in school.  Maybe it’s the onset of a new season.  Or maybe it’s because we were named large volume Builder of the Year at last weekend’s provincial Awards of Excellence in Housing.  That’s right!  Builder of the Year!  It’s all very exciting.  But what makes it even more exciting is that in addition to winning the Ralph Scurfield Builder of the Year Award, we received four other accolades …

Best Single Family Home $250,000 to $280,000 – Yorkdale
Best Single Family Home $280,000 to $310,000 – Donovan
Best Single Family Home $310,000 to $350,000 – Rosedale
Best Single Family Home $525,000 to $625,000 – 2012 Dream Home

The Yorkdale, Donovan and Rosedale are all Edmonton-based showhomes.  The Donovan is a rear, detached-garage home in Griesbach, while the Yorkdale and Rosedale are front-drive homes in Summerside.

The Dream Home, on the other hand, is the custom home that we build every year for the Stampede Lotteries in support of the Rotary Club of Calgary South.  The 2012 home was our 17th Dream Home.  Brenda and Dave Somers (and their three adorable little girls) won the home that now resides in the southeast Calgary community of Walden.

This is our first time being named Builder of the Year at the provincial level.  The fact that the honour came during our 35th anniversary makes it all the more awesome.  Congrats to everyone at Homes by Avi, and thank you to all of our trade and financial partners, suppliers, developers, and, of course, our customers.
