Gabriel Builders Honored at 2015 Southern Home and Garden Bridge Awards

Custom Home Builder earns three Greenville Home Builders Association awards

GREENVILLE, S.C. – On Thursday, March 17, Gabriel Builders was honored in three categories during the 2015 Southern Home and Garden Bridge Awards. The Bridge Awards, hosted by the Greenville Home Builders Association, recognizes exceptional design, construction and features for work completed during the previous year. Gabriel Builders won Best Overall Home and Best Exterior in the highest price category, as well as Best Kitchen in the median price category.

“Gabriel Builders is dedicated to providing exceptional quality homes for our clients, and it is always an honor to have our philosophy underscored by industry recognition,” Gus Rubio, Founder of Gabriel Builders, said. “Receiving these awards, especially among so many talented companies and individuals in our community, is an excellent reminder of why we love what we do.”

Gabriel Builders’ Belle Terre home received the Best Overall Home and the Best Exterior. Belle Terre is an Old World-style home just outside of Greenville, S.C. The brick, stone and wood exterior blends perfectly with the estate’s 50+ acres of scenic countryside, and exudes French-inspired elegance both the inside and outside of the home. Gabriel Builders’ third award was for Best Kitchen, found in their Lakeside Lodge Home situated on Lake Keowee. This open kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances, cabinets by Nicholas James Fine Woodworking, a coffee center, built-in beverage keg and two islands – all overlooking the lake.

In addition to winning three awards, Gus Rubio was the recipient of a resolution from the South Carolina Legislature signed by Gov. Nikki Haley. This resolution commended Gus Rubio and Gabriel Builders for their outstanding accomplishment winning the 2014 National Home Builders’ National Custom Home Builder of the Year and representing the state of South Carolina on a national level. This resolution was given to Rubio during a special presentation during the awards gala.
