2010 OHBA Awards of Distinction - Eurodale 4 Nominations!

The Ontario Home Builders Association (OHBA) just named Eurodale Developments as finalists in 4 categories for the 2010 Awards of Distinction.
The categories include:

  • Most Outstanding Custom Home (under 2500 sqft)
  • Most Outstanding Home Renovation (up to $100,000)
  • Most Outstanding Home Renovation ($100,000 - $500,000)
  • Most Outstanding Kitchen Renovation


The custom home nomination (pic above) was for the 2010 Eurodale Dream Home designed by Richard Librach Architect and the CityLine Design Team. Dubbed MOD256, it is the only luxury custom home that can grow and shrink with the changing needs of the family unit. Since it is modular in nature, it can be built and site assembled in a fraction of a normal custom build timeframe. It is also moveable should you wish to take the home with you to another locale. 

The renovation under $100k (pic above) was for a remodel in Palgrave ON which focused predominently on a main floor of a side split. The kitchen was the focul point and was designed by Thornton Interiors with cabinetry by Distinctive by Design Fine Cabinetry Inc. 

 The renovation between $100 and $500k (pic above) was for an energy executive from Calgary. The West coast flair shifted to Eastern GTA in this dramatic transformation. Interior design was performed by the design agency (Matt, Anwar and Allen from the Designer Guys on HGTV).


Most outstanding kitchen renovation (pic above) was for a remodel in Thornhill ON which was performed for a pair of lawyers that rarely cooked! Hence the project name "burning french fries"! The before and after shots showcase a really dramatic transformation of space and aesthetic.

Our fingers are crossed for the awards gala at Caesars Windsor on September 21st, 2010. Wish us luck!!

MOD256 - Eurodale Dream Home at National Home Show

The Eurodale Dream Home has now been built! Thanks to the hard work of Richard Librach Architect, Kendall Christie Promotions, McCague Landscape Construction, Mike Doyle at O'Neil Electric, Marco and the boys at Deville Electric and all the CityLine Designers - Janette Ewen, Ramsin Khachi, Sharon Grech and Karen Sealy (and there teams).

There were many hands that were in on this build and without every one of them, this could never have been achieved in 7 quick days (and a few nights!). The team at Marketplace Events deserves a huge thank you for the confidence they displayed in selecting Eurodale to handle this massive project, there largest show feature. Stephen Dupuis and the BILD association was a great hand in our corner, assisting in getting Paul Daly and the boys at Local 27 Carpenter's Union on board to supply the additional man power required.

To watch some of the process, watch the video of the behind the scenes build:

2010 NATIONAL HOME SHOW - EURODALE DREAM HOME


Eurodale Developments was selected as the official builders of the Dream Home for the 2010 National Home Show at the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto. The selection process was performed by Marketplace Events who interviewed numerous builders - just as a homeowner would do for their own project, and Eurodale was selected as the best choice to handle the extremely custom build.

This is the first year that the Dream Home will be built with the purpose of re-use. The project is set up as a contemporary build to allow for ease of transport to, into, out-of and away after the show.

Eurodale awarded the design component to Richard Librach Architect http://www.rlarchitect.com/ - a firm that Eurodale has colaborated with on several projects in the past. One such colaboration was recognized as the best renovation nominee for renovations in the $75,000 category for a Rosedale renovation (http://eurodale.ca/Gallery6.htm).

The National Home Show build is performed on site, inside the Direct Energy Centre in only 7 days, leaving the Eurodale crew a significant challenge! The home show runs from February 19th to February 28th, 2010. Discounted tickets may be purchased online at https://www.microspec.com/tix123/etic.cfm?code=NATHS2010.


As a real treat, Ty Pennington from Extreme Home Makeover will be touring the home on Friday February 19th. Ty is a media partner of Marketplace Events and we are very excited to have him touring our home. Perhaps there may be an Extreme Home Makeover in Canada's future - don't worry, we are sure to suggest it to him!
