Milford, PA – At their annual 2010 awards banquet, the Pike County Builders Association presented Ed Nikles Custom Builder, Inc. with the prestigious “Primary Home of the Year” award, in the category of less than 1,500 square feet. Their newest custom home utilizes many of the energy efficient and high performance technologies that have made Ed Nikles Custom Builder, Inc. a celebrated custom builder, both nationally and locally.
Although this home is small, 1102 Sq Ft., it fits the needs perfectly for a retired widow who wanted a place that she could manage and would be low in utility costs and require very little maintenance.
The covered porch with its classic round columns and colonial railings makes for a perfect setting for her wicker furniture, so that she can sit there and enjoy her wooded surroundings.
The living room features a direct vent gas log fireplace which is also viewed from the dining area. The kitchen is compact but with ample cabinets for storage and features a pass-through that looks out into the living room – dining area.
The master bedroom is comfortably sized and has its own private bath and walk-in closet. The guest bedroom and guest bath are for the grandchildren when they visit.
Although this house is built on a crawl space, adequate room for storage is provided in the garage. This truly turned out to be the ideal home for “Grandma.”
As a full-service Home Construction and Design Company, Ed Nikles has won various local, state, and national awards including the Pennsylvania Builders Association’s “Distinguished Builders” award in 2004, the Pike County Chamber of Commerce “Business of the Year” award in 2006, the National Association of Home Builders “Custom Homebuilder of the Year” award in 2008, and most recently the Pocono’s Choice Award as the “Leader in Home Building” in 2010 and Pike County Builders Association 2010 custom primary home, best architectural design and builder construction, in the 3500-4500 sq ft category.
