Helping promote and market the build of a custom home for a decorated war veteran has to be one of the most rewarding projects in the history of Forest Home Media to date. We were doubly thrilled when this build earned for client Carbine & Associates two national awards recently with Forest Home Media’s marketing efforts included in the honor.
The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) National Sales and Marketing Council (NSMC) salutes and honors the best in the building industry for their determination, integrity, creativity and endurance through their The Nationals award program.
The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales said Christy Beck, chairperson of the Nationals.
“NAHB’s commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition’s inception,” Beck said.
Forest Home Media Partner Nancy McNulty, who was part of the PR team for the project, said watching Carbine & Associates marshal so many volunteers while witnessing the construction of the beautiful, four-bedroom French Country home with Tudor accents in the gated community of Kings’ Chapel was awe inspiring.
Carbine customized the home to the family’s needs for Luke who suffers from severe PSTD and a brain tumor. Van Dorston joined the US Air Force in Feb 2002, flew 140 combat missions, involved in more than 64 direct action raids and directed 194 Close Air Support Missions, served at the Interservice Military Free Fall School where he trained over 500 Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine and Allied Force special operators. He was involved in combat engagements earning him two bronze stars, one with valor for heroism.
Award Winning Project
The project earned a Judge’s Special Award of Excellence and a Silver Award for Building Industry Community Spirit Award.
At the end of the day, this beautiful, young family has begun a new chapter in their lives with an incredible custom home in a gorgeous and welcoming community.
