I'm excited to let you know that a house I designed with fellow Raleigh architect, Tina Govan, has been selected as one of ten projects in the running for Fine Homebuilding's 2013 HOUSES Readers' Choice Award.
Beginning February 18, Fine Homebuilding is asking readers to visit the contest page
and vote on their favorite house. Each voter can vote once a day until March 13th, (which we're hoping you'll do) and each vote also enters you for the chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab™ from Marvin Windows and Doors (who incidentally supplied the windows for our house).
Tina and I would love it if you could take a moment to check out our project and cast your vote, and to help us spread the word about the contest.
Our project is called the NC Mountain Lake House

More images of the house can be found on my Facebook page
or in this Picasa album
Voting will remain open until March 13, 2013. At the close of the voting period, votes will be tallied and the project submission voted the most popular -- the Readers' Choice -- will be featured in the HOUSES 2013 issue along with the winners in the categories of Best Energy Smart Home, Best New Home, Best Remodel, Best Retirement Home, Best Small Home and Editor's Choice.
So here's what you can do to help:
1. Go to the contest page to check out the entries and cast your vote for your favorite house. (Tina and I are hoping you'll vote for the NC Mountain Lake House, but that of course is up to you!)
2. Set a reminder for yourself to return every day to vote.
3. Pass this Newsflash on to all the people you think will be interested in seeing the house, and ask them to cast their vote. Just cut and paste the link to this page into an e-mail.
