2021 Excellence in Building Awards Nominees and Winners

Design Excellence: Best Outdoor Living/Landscape

Outdoor areas or rooms extend the living space of a home. Some are adjacent to the home such as in a case of a covered patio while others are completely detached. What makes an outdoor living area different from a simple functionary roof or patio is the livability of it. The same design considerations used to design a kitchen or family room are applied to the natural areas outside of the home – function, appeal and use of fixtures and amenities.

  • Back to Nature Landscaping & Construction
  • Slate Creek Builders

Winner: Back to Nature Landscaping & Construction

Justin Boyle, NRVHBA President; James Ulmer, Back to Nature Landscaping & Construction

Design Excellence: Best Bathroom

Bathrooms tend to be one of the smallest rooms in a house even though they serve many roles and daily tasks. Layout, function and integration of design make a huge difference when creating a one of a kind bathroom. Cabinetry finishes and fixtures often are the highlights or the design features for this highly used space. So, making sure that every detail is considered is important. Both of these nominees put together exceptional examples of functional, yet beautiful spaces and the votes showed it.

  • Blue Ridge Home Improvement
  • Goldsmith Roberts Design Build
  • Slate Creek Builders
  • Tyris Homes

Winner: Blue Ridge Home Improvement

Logan Lawrence, Blue Ridge Home Improvement; Justin Boyle, NRVHBA President

Design Excellence: Best Kitchen

Many people consider the kitchen the heart of the home and family. When considering what makes the best kitchen, we considered a design that plans for overall layout, function and integration into the entire home with creative use of space and overall appeal of cabinetry, appliance and unique features.

  • Shelter Alternatives 
  • Slate Creek Builders
  • Tyris Homes 

Winner: Slate Creek Builders









Justin Boyle, NRVHBA President; Cassidy Jones, Slate Creek Builders

Design Excellence: Best Remodeled Home

When accepting a remodeling project, there are often more considerations that need to be addressed than a new home since you are having to work with existing walls and placements. This year’s best remodeled home nominees all had houses that showed creative integration of both site and interior constraints.  They showcased unique selections of furniture, fixtures and amenities. But when a remodel project is completed there must be obvious quality improvement and the nominees each did an outstanding job showing this.

  • Shelter Alternatives
  • Slate Creek Builders
  • White Builders

Winner: White Builders

Sara Purpura, White Builders; Justin Boyle, NRVHBA President; Roger White, White Builders

Design Excellence: Best New Home

To be the best new home in the NRV, the chosen home had a lot to live up to. These nominees were judged by their peers on the overall exterior and interior design and construction, the function and creative use of interior space, creative integration of plan design with site considerations, unique features and fixtures, and innovative use of flooring and wall treatments. But overall, the house had to stand out both inside and out.

  • Eagle Construction
  • Tyris Homes

Winner: Tyris Homes

ustin Boyle, NRVHBA President; Cat White, Tyris Homes

The Builder of the Year award is not only the best of the best of our association, but it says a lot for our community as well. The builder of the year isn’t just building the best homes, but they are most building the best business practices as well. When a business is nominated for builder of the year, we are making sure they are building with integrity and quality in mind as well as giving serious consideration to the impact their building is creating on and in our community.
