CAMPOBELLO, S.C., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Campobello- based log home manufacturer, Blue Ridge Log Cabins, received two national home building accolades as part of the 2016 Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Building Systems Councils (BSC) and the Log and Timber Homes Council. Blue Ridge Log Cabins was honored on Nov. 6, 2015, during the BSC's Building Systems Showcase, the only national conference and educational event focused exclusively on the systems-built industry.

For more than a decade, the BSC's awards program has promoted excellence in systems-built housing. Front runners in the industry are honored at the annual awards presentation for their innovative marketing strategies and unique systems-built housing designs.

"Winners of this year's awards did a phenomenal job of showcasing the best marketing and home designs in the building systems industry," said 2015 BSC chairman, Dan Mitchell owner of Eagle CDI in Seymour, Tenn. "Systems-built technology is the building of the future, and these awards represent what is possible for potential systems-built home owners."

The annual Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence are judged by an independent panel of industry experts, and companies like Blue Ridge Log Cabins were praised for the quality of their submittals. Recipients were recognized for excellence in achievement in a range of categories such as informative and aesthetically-pleasing websites, along with floor plan designs categorized by systems-built type and square footage.

"Obviously, it is nice to be recognized on the national level with two such prestigious awards. Blue Ridge Log Cabins is proud of its many talented and dedicated employees who are always working together to create new trendsetting designs and products. These accolades are definitely a testimonial to the hard work and ingenuity we have in all departments at BRLC," said Chip Smith, Blue Ridge Log Cabins' President and CEO.
