60year_PH_logoThe Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs announced the winners of the Peoples Choice Awards and the Industry Awards of Excellence for the 2014 Parade of Homes. This year’s featured homes ranged in price from less than $150,000 to more than $2,000,000. 25 builders presented 28 homes dispersed between 17 communities for the 60th Annual Parade of Homes.

Industry professionals from around the state judged the homes on a number of features including: landscape design, floor plan, architectural exterior, and interior decorating. The coveted People’s Choice Awards are voted on each year by Parade of Homes attendees. This year’s parade was attended by more than 14,000 guests – up 16% from 2013. The People’s Choice and Industry Awards of Excellence are both broken out into multiple categories divided by price point. Industry Awards of Excellence are then further divided among the following eight categories: Best Kitchen, Best Master Suite, Best Interior Design, Best Exterior, Best Landscape Design, Best Architectural Exterior, Best Craftsmanship and Best Overall Home.

On Friday, August 22, winners of both the People’s Choice and Industry Awards of Excellence were honored by the HBA at the Parade of Homes Awards Banquet held at the Pinery At the Hill with more than 200 in attendance. The sponsor of this year’s banquet was Arlun, Inc. and Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery.
