Mountain Architects Recognized at Industry Premier Event

National Association of Home Builders Awards Mountain Architects Two "Excellence in Design" Awards

MERIDIAN, ID--(Marketwire - November 19, 2008) - Each year, leaders from all walks of the building systems industry come together to discuss and present the latest and greatest building trends and systems. The big event, appropriately named SHOWCASE, kicked off this week in Memphis, TN with an Awards Ceremony recognizing Mountain Architects and PrecisionCraft as leaders in home design.

The award-winning pair managed to walk away with two "Excellence in Home Design" awards. The brilliant design behind Mountain Architects' Beartooth and Rockpoint homes stood out from a total of 111 design entries, rising to take center stage at this national awards ceremony.

The bold timber frame home based on Mountain Architects' Beartooth floor plan sits atop a hill overlooking Lake Pend Oreille in Sandpoint, ID. This beautifully crafted timber frame home is simply breathtaking with its glass prow design and cathedral ceilings. The home features an indoor pool, theatre room & bar located in the walk-out basement -- perfect for entertaining business clients and family guests. Every room in the home is oriented specifically to take advantage of the lakeside view. Even the reading area in the loft offers a splendid view of Lake Pend Oreille perfectly framed by a custom barrel truss with a full arch. These are just a few of the features making this home a sure winner at the 2008 SHOWCASE event.

Located in the Allegheny Mountains, Mountain Architects' award winning home based on the Rockpoint log home plan offers something for everyone. With its unique double prows, it is easy to enjoy views of the vast Appalachian Mountain range from both the dining room and the great room. Velux Balcony Roof Windows and glass railing on the exterior deck also connect the outdoors with the interior by providing unobstructed views. The interior finishes of this home create the perfect combination of rustic tradition and modern living. Minimal furniture in the great room keeps the attention on the spectacular view of the Allegheny Mountains. Tile throughout the home adds color and echoes the beautiful sky.

The Beartooth and the Rockpoint both represent the perfect combination of modern style and rugged appeal. Mountain Architects' individual approach to creative design makes these homes truly one-of-a-kind.
