Homebuilder Alan Looney, founder and president of Castle Homes, located in Brentwood, TN, has been named Custom Builder Member of the Year by the Southern Living Custom Builder Program after the 2011 launch of the Southern Living Showcase Home in Nashville.
“Alan Looney represents the best our program has to offer,” says Kristen Payne, Executive Marketing Director, Southern Living. “His sincerity as a person and vested interest in providing a customer a great experience are what really make him stand apart.”
The Southern Living Custom Builder Program is an invitation-only network of nearly
100 builders across the country. Each member is hand-selected for their outstanding reputation, quality of design and construction, integrity, and stability in the locations they represent.
A member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program since 2010, Castle Homes, a design-build firm with guaranteed pricing, earned the 2012 Builder of the Year award for its successful presentation of the 2011 Southern Living Showcase Home. The Southern Living Showcase Home in Nashville welcomed almost 7,000 visitors with Ronald McDonald House Nashville as the benefiting charity as well as receiving hundreds of donated Books From Birth for families served. “The home reflects a story you might see in the pages of Southern Living,” adds Payne. “It is clear that a lot of care went into every detail of the home and that’s what earned him the recognition as the top member in the Custom Builder Program. Castle Homes will be featured in our September 2012 issue.”
The award was presented during the Southern Living Builder Conference held in February at the Wild Dunes Resort near Charleston.
