Runner-Up Winner

Uwe Stern of IRE International Real Estate Corporation (Clearwater, FL) used over two dozen Pacific Columns Endura-Stone™ columns in the construction of a Spanish Villa styled home. The columns are used to "hold up a larger patio ... dress up the rest of the front ... define the kitchen/living room area and they are also used for the second story loft." This very well put together house is not only appealing to the eye, but was built with energy-efficient techniques to help keep day to day utility costs down.

"IRE International Real Estate Corporation is one of the first green building developers in the Tampa Bay Area in Florida. Based in sunny Clearwater our goal is to develop residential homes that are energy efficient, conserving and minimizing the use of energy and water." -
