term 'green builder'," said the coowner of doug Tarry Homes. "what
I saw were companies that were
committed to building that way,
which I thought was really refreshing." Homes, who is a past president of the Ontario Home Builders'
Association, was one of 10 judges
from across the country evaluating
the 269 entries in 53 categories.

College Architecture Professor
Chris Hewett, the only local judge
this year.
