The 2017 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design Winners

May we present the Winning log and timber entries, as well as the Homes of Distinction (the runners up) of the 2017 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design.

Each year, the National Association of Home Builders’ Building Systems Councils (the umbrella under which the Log & Timber Homes Council falls) holds a competition to award the most innovative and best log home designs in the market today. The winners are recognized at the Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design, held during the Councils’ Building Systems Summit in the fall.

The 2017 competition was fierce, as there were scores of exceptional, imaginative homes competing for the top prize in their categories (many of which have been previously featured in Log Home Living). And though only a handful of manufacturers got to walk away with a trophy, because home plans have gotten smarter and more creative than ever before, we all win.

May we present the winning log and timber entries, as well as the Homes of Distinction (the runners up) of the 2017 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design.
