The photo above was taken one year ago, when Copper Island Fine Homes was honoured by the Canadian Home Builders' Association with the prestigious Keystone Award for Best Single Family Detached Home valued at $1,500,00 and over. We also won two other Keystone awards that same evening -- one for Best Design Feature, and one for Best Customer Service.
Receiving the award are owners Greg and Tracy Vistisen (on the left), and our father/daughter Project Managers, Heidi and Dean Friesen.
The award was for a gorgeous lakefront home that we had recently completely in Scotch Creek. It was our most challenging project to date, and took us almost two years to complete. Greg, Tracy and Dean were no strangers to being awarded Keystone awards, but for Heidi, the event was particularly significant.
"It was my biggest house to date from start to finish," she recalls. "These three people standing up there in the photo with me had the confidence in me all along. They have pushed me to grow and succeed alongside of them. Always have always treated me with the most respect and always valued my thoughts and opinions."
We thought we'd revisit the occasion because, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are no Keystone Awards this year. We're hopeful we'll see them return in 2022!
