Nakamoto Forestry Featured in Builder’s Choice Design Awards

For more than thirty years, the Builder’s Choice Design Awards has celebrated innovation in residential design. A jury of residential architects and designers awards hand-picked projects based on criteria including design excellence, innovation, sustainability, floor plan efficiency, and use of materials. From the results, it seems like yakisugi “shou sugi ban” siding caught the jury’s interest.  

This year, 15 projects were recognized as exemplary residential designs from around the country. Of those awarded, Nakamoto Forestry was featured on three of them – including the prestigious Project of the Year!
