This home features the National Association of Home Builders' 2012 “Room of the Year.” N.C. State University selected Rufty Homes as builder to partner with architect Marvin Malecha, dean of the NCSU College of Design, as well as Weinstein Friedlein Architects of Carrboro.
The team was challenged by the university to create a welcoming home with a personal scale rather than a grand and intimidating design. A testimony to teamwork committed to great value, “The Point” was built with in-kind services and materials donations as well as private funds. It features all N.C. materials – from the brick to the wood framing, floors, ceilings and trim. Locally sourced brick was color-matched to Holladay Hall, the first building constructed on the university campus. It is LEED certified and features a closed geothermal system of 14 wells for heating and cooling.
The NAHB recognized Rufty Homes with its “Room of the Year” award as well as the platinum award for “Kitchen Design” in the 2012 Best in American Living Awards at the annual NAHB International Builders’ Show. Rufty utilized Design Lines, Ltd. for the interiors.
