2012 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design
For more than a decade, the Building Systems Councils' awards program has promoted excellence in the systems-built industry. This year, the awards were renamed to honor Jerry Rouleau, a marketing authority and longtime building systems advocate, who lost his battle with cancer in the spring of 2011.
These awards acknowledge building systems professionals in the categories of exceptional home design and marketing materials. Applicants can include manufacturers, builders and associate members.
Following are the recipients of the 2012 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design, presented by the Building Systems Council and Log Homes Council. Throughout 2012, we reveal an in-depth look at the floor plans and photography of these exceptional projects.
