The BCHBA is a non-profit, professional membership organization comprised of over 300 members representing the building industry in southeastern North Carolina.
As a local builder and Current President of the Brunswick County Home Builder’s Association I would like to welcome you to the BrunswickCounty Home Builder’s Associations 2021 Parade of Homes. 2021 marks the 19th consecutive year this event has been presented to the public by our local organization. Many have toured our homes over the years and were inspired by the designs and craftsmanship they found on display. Brunswick County is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation and this year’s growth has accelerated. Our local beaches, waterways, and golf courses provide wonderful backdrops to extremely nice communities and homesites both for residents and the many who have made the move and now call Brunswick County home. In preparing our homes for this event the ordinary challenges of routine construction were enhanced this year by so many uncontrollable variables. Material costs skyrocketed as demand continued to increase. Low interest rates fueled the flames of a very strong local housing market and many times off-set the additional cost of construction during this period of heightened prices.
Builders were forced to develop individual strategies to manage cost increases during the construction process along with significant increases in many lead times for materials, fixtures, and appliances. While operating in a market of constant change and adjustment this year’s builders accomplished the mission and are pleased to share their homes with the public. As we continue as a nation to live with the reality of COVID precautions will be taken to provide a safe environment for all. As last year ,all 2021 entries will be available for virtual tours, and many have chosen to participate in allowing in-person viewing as well. Please review each entry to determine how the builder has chosen to allow viewing this year. The BCHBA is sincerely appreciative of the many who have contributed to this program this year. It is a collective effort of our membership, committees, vendors, and many others that make this program possible every fall here in Brunswick County.
—Robert Norton, President, Brunswick County HBA
