Building Innovations' Modular Model Home Wins Parade of Homes Award


Nationwide Custom Homes


Orange Park Florida – Modular home builder Building Innovations won for its Sugarhill home model at the recent Northeast Florida Builders Association Parade of Homes event. The home, the first-time entry for the builder and the only modular home in the competition, won in the category of homes priced between $274,000 and $300,000. Building Innovations is a Nationwide Custom Homes builder and Nationwide is a division of national modular company Palm Harbor Homes.

Building Innovations, owned by Susan Krause and general contractor Mark Julius, covers Daytona, Orlando and all of Northeast Florida. The company has been in business for two years and the owners have been in the industry for 12 years. The Sugarhill model is one of the most successful home designs at the business, which offers more than 100 plans online at www.floridabuildinginnovations.com and custom built.

Krause said she believes the modular model won because of “price point and eye appeal. It is a fantastic Southern style plantation looking home with a wraparound porch.” She added that a few of the home’s best features are its traditional look, third-story option and open floor plan. The Sugarhill’s exterior was further complemented with stone and paving bricks while the inside had painted feature walls, tray ceilings and beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the first floor rooms.

The Parade of Homes included 71 homes and 41 builders within the association’s nine-county area. Overall home appearance, architecture and design, and use of natural lighting were among the criteria used the judge the home entries, according to Scott Merritt, the association’s event coordinator.

“Building Innovations has achieved a significant and well-deserved win as a first-time modular home entry in the Parade of Homes,” said Nationwide Custom Homes President Andy Miller. “Building Innovations has a commitment to providing the best systems-built homes to its customers, and their success at the Parade of Homes shows their continued dedication to design features and quality.”
