Woodsville, NH- based log home manufacturer, Coventry Log Homes, Inc., received a national home building accolade as part of the 2015 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design presented by the Building Systems Councils (BSC) and the Log and Timber Homes Council, part of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
Coventry was honored on Oct. 27, 2014, during the BSC’s ‘‘Showcase24,’’ held this year in Washington, DC, the only national conference and educational event focused exclusively on the systems-built industry. Mark Elliott, vice president of CLH, was present to accept the award for Marketing Material for the submission of their 84-page full color Planning Guide.
For more than a decade, the BSC’s awards program has promoted excellence in systems-built housing. Front runners in the industry are honored at the annual awards presentation for their innovative marketing strategies and unique systems-built housing designs.
‘‘Winners of this year’s awards did a phenomenal job of showcasing the best marketing and home designs in the building systems industry,’’ said 2014 BSC chairman, Jason Blenker of Blenker Building Systems, in Amherst, Wis. ‘‘Systems-built technology is the building of the future and these awards represent what is possible for potential systems-built home owners.’’
The annual Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence are judged by an independent panel of industry experts, and companies like Coventry Log Homes were praised for the quality of their submittals. Recipients were recognized for excellence in achievement in a range of categories such as informative and aesthetically-pleasing websites, along with floor plan designs categorized by systems-built type and square footage.
‘‘It was an exciting event this year and we were honored to receive this award. Our new Planning Guide was designed in-house and I’m proud of the effort our staff made to create a beautiful brochure our customers can enjoy,’’ said Mark Elliott.
Select projects will be displayed on the BSC Awards Wall during the 2015 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Jan. 20 -22, 2015.

ABOUT THE BSC: The Building Systems Councils of the National Association of Home Builders is made up of manufacturer, builder, and associate members who advocate building with concrete, log, modular, or panelized systems. Systems-built homes are constructed to the same code standards and reflect the same, and often enhanced, quality levels as any site-built construction. The advantage of systems-building is it’s done in a fraction of the time, with a fraction of the waste, which can significantly reduce costs. Many systems-built homes also are inherently environmentally friendly adding a ‘‘green’’ label to the finished home.
