Epoch Homes, a leading Green Custom Modular Manufacturer was awarded first place in the 2013 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design for a Custom Modular Home by the NAHB’s Building Systems Council.
PEMBROKE, NH. October 20, 2012 – Epoch Homes, a leading manufacturer of fully custom designed modular homes took first place for a Modular Home between 3,001-4,000 square feet at the annual BSC Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design. The Building Systems Councils (BSC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) presented the award for the best modular home at their annual Showcase event in Washington D.C.
Epoch Homes also won first place for Excellence in Design- Green Building in this year’s awards. The award winning home was built on Cape Cod, MA with builder Old Harbor Homes. Together, Epoch Homes and Old Harbor Homes have partnered to win a number of design awards.
The ocean front home offers expansive views from all levels and incorporates complex structural engineering to maximize the glazing in a challenging high wind environment. The initial design was by the architectural firm Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects. Epoch Homes converted the structure to a modular approach to reduce costs and to speed the time of construction. The specifications were developed
to incorporate the Epoch Homes’ Healthy Home Specification, using low VOC building materials, finishes, and systems to control indoor air quality.
Doug Basnett stated, “Our employees are thrilled to be recognized, once again for the custom homes that we have an opportunity to build. In this case, custom elements included design, structure and healthy materials. We often say that modular should be viewed as a construction technology that saves time and money, rather than a particular look, or a cookie cutter design, and this home is a great
illustration. Our long history of building award winning homes has gone a long way to dispel old myths and misunderstandings about modular homes.”
He concluded, “Modular homes are faster, lower cost, higher quality and lower risk, than other construction technologies.” Epoch Homes has won numerous design awards for its green and custom homes.
