The 15th Annual Lake Norman Home Builders Association – Best of the Lake Awards Gala was held Friday, November 2nd at The Peninsula Club, Cornelius, NC. Southern Cottage Corp was named BEST IN SHOW for the Best Remodel – Existing Home – More than $500K. The Best of the Lake is an annual competition sponsored by the Lake Norman Home Builders Association, the area’s preeminent professional association dedicated to the enrichment of the Lake Norman Community and its housing industry. The renowned competition affords builders, designers and trade craftsmen with the opportunity to showcase their extensive creative talents.

This year’s Awards Gala was held at The Peninsula Club in Cornelius, NC. The Premier Sponsor, Cambria/Marva Marble, whose showroom is based in Charlotte, was an incredible sponsor, making this competition and Awards Gala an extraordinary event.

Electrolux, whose corporate headquarters is in Charlotte, stepped up to be this years Reception Sponsor. Silver Sponsors were Cutting Edge Stoneworks & Ferguson, both of Mooresville. Table Sponsors were E&P Trimwork, Carolinas Custom Kitchen & Bath Center, Andersen Corp, Stoneworks Ltd., Cutting Edge Stoneworks, Building Company No. 7/Magnolia Real Estate, Fireplace & Granite Distributors, and Alan Simonini Homes. The ATM Sponsor was Beason Homes. These elite sponsors help make this event an exciting and compelling event for the industry! This year’s Media Partner was Currents Magazine.

The event celebrates builders, designers and craftsmen who entered new custom homes, remodeling/renovations/addition projects, special projects, outdoor projects and interior design & staging projects for consideration by the judges. As in years past, entries were kept anonymous, ensuring that all of the professionals and well qualified judges were unaware of which entrants provided which entries. Judging is based on a set of criteria formed around design originality, construction accomplishments and challenges, and solutions to those challenges. The winners of this year’s competition serve as an inspiration to the greater community at large, reminding us of the positive impact of the association and of its constant embrace of integrity.
