The Home Builders Association of Delaware hosted its 28th Annual Regal Awards May 15 via a virtual ceremony, recognizing excellence and celebrating outstanding achievements in Delaware home building.
Marnie Custom Homes, a woman-owned building company that specializes in designing and building custom beach homes using sustainable practices throughout Delaware and beyond, was recognized as Custom Home Builder of the Year for the second year in a row. President Marnie Oursler also was named Designer of the Year for the second consecutive year.
Marnie Custom Homes’ five 2020 Regal Awards are: Custom Home Builder of the Year; Designer of the Year for Marnie Oursler, Marnie Custom Homes president; Best Interior Design for Dock Holiday custom home project: Best Bathroom Design for Forever Grace home project; and Best Master Suite Design for Ocean of Dreams custom home project.
A panel of qualified experts assigned scores for every submission, with only one winner in each category. For Custom Home Builder of the Year and Designer of the Year, Marnie Custom Homes achieved the highest cumulative points based on multiple award categories.
“We love what we do, and winning the prestigious Custom Home Builder of the Year and Designer of the Year awards two years in a row really reflects the talent, dedication and innovation of the entire Marnie Custom Homes team,” said Oursler.
Entries were judged on how well the overall project demonstrated excellence in craftsmanship, skilled labor, attention to detail, and overall design including visual appeal, functionality and flow. Project challenges were considered and addressed, and it was noted how entries compare to similar builds in the market.
“We’re proud of our 2020 Regal Awards within the Delaware home building industry, and we’re proud to be part of this amazing community,” said Oursler.
