Timber Home Wins Dream Home Award

The 2010 Dream Home Awards recently awarded 33 builders, architects, designers, developers and tradesmen from across the nation for their excellence in a variety of areas.

Award categories included Historic Renovation of the Year, Conceptual Projects, Community of the Year and Best Green Home Project and were judged on Unusual or Creative Architectural Design Elements, Creative Site Solutions, and Exterior and Interior Appeal.

Our Lincoln, New Hampshire timber home won a Silver Award in the Custom Vacation Home category.

This 4800 square foot home was designed by timber frame architect Jeremy Bonin within strict Architectural Review Board guidelines which dictated architectural style, building height, setbacks, exterior materials, and color schemes. The small, ½ acre corner lot restricted onsite material storage. Pre-built Structural Insulated Panels were used for their energy efficiency and fast installation time (providing a weather-tight shell in just two weeks), allowing the site to be kept free from materials being stored long-term throughout the construction process.

Bonin Architects, along with 31 other talent professionals, were awarded for their outstanding work based on factors such as quality of design, livability, sustainability and the ability to provide healthy and nurturing environments for consumers. Dream Home Awards aims to assist and encourage building industry leaders to develop innovative homes and products.
