Grand Award - Tucker Bayou

Located in a breezy beach community along Florida's northwest coast, this 3,544-square-foot idea house has just about every thoughtful detail an empty-nester could wish for—generous display shelving for art and collectibles, built-in bunks for grandchildren, tactile indulgences such as reclaimed wood floors, and a dedicated “work room” off the kitchen, complete with storage cubbies, a pet feeding station, and an island for dropping off groceries.

Who would guess it's a modular dwelling by Haven Custom Homes that arrived on site 80 percent complete? In fact, all of the home's electrical, plumbing, HVAC mechanicals, stair systems, kitchen and bath finishes, flooring, siding, and roofing materials were pre-installed at the factory.

“This house is a great testament that it doesn't have to look modular to be modular,” says architect Carson Looney, whose firm designed the livable abode with its homespun, coastal vernacular. And the construction process yielded less than one dumpster of jobsite waste.
