24th ANNUAL HOBI AWARDS
On Wednesday November 15, 2017, a record 880 housing industry professionals gathered at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington for the 24th annual HOBI Awards – the largest and most successful builder awards program in the country, and a who’s who gathering of the Connecticut home building industry. The highlight of the evening was a Power Point presentation of the winning homes and communities by HOBI Awards producer and dinner MC, Joanne Carroll, followed by the announcement of the Top Award Winners.
“In spite of a difficult market and onerous regulations, we have a lot of successful builders, and Sound Beach Partners, won a record 9 HOBI Awards this year, followed by Bluewater Home Builders & Toll Bros. with 6 each! This year’s winning homes embrace the outdoors as never before. It’s all about more glass, less frame & less wall. The trend is to low profile drywall detailing, slab cabinetry with a linen finish, quartz counters and floating shelves. On the outside, it’s roof decks and inside, bunk beds are in vogue!”
