Inside Business featured an article on the Virginia Beach Design Awards where VB Homes received an Honor Award in the Residential Development category this past December on six homes built in the Old Beach neighborhood. For more information regarding this exciting project, please see our Winter 2015 Newlestter.
On December 10, 2014, the City of Virginia Beach Planning Commission presented VB Homes with the Honor Award for our “Old Beach Homes” on 417, 419, & 421 24-1/2 Street and 416, 418, & 420 25th Street in recognition of creative and innovative design solutions in Residential Development. Our upcoming Winter 2015 Newsletter will feature these homes in further detail.
Since 1991, VB Homes has served as the lead partner for the Building Futures House Construction Project sponsored by the Virginia Beach Schools Education Foundation. Through this initiative, students and faculty from the Virginia Beach Technical and Career Education Center work together each year to construct a succession of single family homes. Profits from the sale of each house fund Building Futures grants for teachers.
Remodeling magazine has named VB Homes on the Remodeling 550 list as one of the nation’s largest full-service remodeling companies.
The Remodeling 550 is a list of the largest remodeling and home improvement companies based on residential remodeling revenue for 2009. The list divides companies into four categories: full-service, specialty and replacement, insurance restoration companies and franchise operations. According to the magazine, “full-service remodeling companies are almost always local, one-branch operations that rely to a large extent on referrals and repeat business, as well as their reputation, to keep crews busy.”
VB Homes entered a custom designed and crafted structure made to enhance the outdoor living space of a home located on a Virginia Beach golf course. The project rated highly across seven criteria by a NARI judging panel, which rated the entry 58.25 on a 60-point maximum scale.
VB Homes appeared in the March and April 2008 issues of Southern Living Magazine.
