Rufty Homes is honored to be the recipient of a 2022 Best in American Living Award for our entry, The Power of Collaboration in Category 36: Entire Home, Over $750,000! Our team was recognized for the collaborative work we did with local architect, Abbie Lee Roehm, of Paces & Roehm and interior designer, Jill Wilson, on a luxury remodel in Cary.
“Part of what made this renovation project unique is that the homeowners’ history of working and living around the world is reflected in the details of their home. The bar in their wine lounge is modeled after a hotel bar they loved in Paris, while the La Cornue range in their kitchen reminds them of times spent in the summer kitchen on their grandparents’ Pennsylvania farm. Bringing these design aspects to life was truly a group effort between our team, Abbie Lee, Jill, and our amazing group of subcontractors,” says Jon Rufty of Rufty Homes.
It was also important to the homeowners to maximize the ways they could enjoy the view of the golf course from the home. To do this, the Rufty Homes team helped create seven different outdoor spaces, including a cigar terrace, giving the homeowners plenty of places to spend time soaking in the great outdoors.
“We’re proud of the work we did on this project and were excited to share it with our colleagues through the National Association of Home Builders and the Best in American Living Awards,” Jon goes on to say.
Each year, the National Association of Home Builders recognizes outstanding residential builders and design professionals through the Best in American Living Awards, showcasing projects at all budget levels. After completing this project, we submitted it for consideration for an award and it was then judged by a group of eight industry experts that included designers, builders, architects, and land planners from across the county.
On February 1, our team attended the Best in American Living Awards Ceremony during the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, where we were officially presented with the gold award. We had an incredible time celebrating with our fellow award winners and recognizing creative home designs from around the country.
We are truly honored by this recognition and will continue to hold ourselves to the highest standards that have helped us become the Triangle’s leader in sustainable luxury home building.
