Otter Creek Attended the 34ath Annual Better Homes Awards Banquet

Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Northern Vermont hosted the 34th Annual Better Homes Awards.  Over 450 construction professionals attended the Banquet this year at the Sheraton Hotel in Burlington where we celebrated all the entrants’ amazing craftsmanship.

Our very own Stu MacDonald was one of the speakers at this event, as he currently holds the position of President for HBRANV.   And of course, a group of the Otter Creek team attended the event to support Stu and are active members of the Association as well.
