    Scott and I had a great time the other night at the MAX Awards gala for the Austin Home Builders Association.

    Mike & Linda Grimm, owners of Silverton Custom Homes (the builder of the Southern Living Showcase House) invited us to be their guests for the event.  The Silverton team has won many awards over the years, including “2013 Southern Living Custom Builder of the Year” and “Best Custom Home” by the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin for 2011 and 2012.

    This year they were finalists for several awards related to the showcase house and I was honored they invited us to participate in the event!

    3 Awards were won Saturday night, including….

    1) Best Custom Spec Home- huge honor!

    2) Best Interior Design for a Parade of Homes or Showcase Home- very awesome!

    3) Best Kitchen – Period. Amazing!

    Scott was nice enough to grab this photo while the professional photographer got lined up.  The awards are clear glass, so a bit hard to see, but there are 3 there!  The row includes Lisa & Chris Willeford, Linda and Mike Grimm, myself, Megan and Jason Grimm.

    I was most proud of the Best Interior Design award and was so glad to get to share the experience with Linda and Lisa!

    Some of the other big winners of the night were:

    Grand MAX “Volume Builder of the Year”: Scott Felder Homes

    Grand MAX “Custom Builder of the Year”: Lake Travis Builders

    Grand MAX “Remodeler of the Year”: David Wilkes Builders

    Also, there were some amazing photos of a home by Zbranek & Holt Custom Homes which was basically on an island.  The exterior was incredible.

    If you have some extra time this weekend I encourage you to check out their portfolios online!
