Tamlin Homes found out last fall that we were a finalist in the Georgie Awards for ‘Best Custom Home Valued Between $750,000-$1,500,000. We were so proud of this achievement, as even being voted a finalist among the large amount of entries, was an accomplishment.
Then on February 1, 2014, Chris Lynn with wife Carolynne, and Paul Tabuchi with his wife Mitsuko, attended the black tie Gala Event held at the Vancouver Convention Center. It was an evening full of entertainment, great food, and lots of networking. When the category that Tamlin entered the ‘Gambier’ home into came up, no one could have been more surprised to hear Tamlin’s name called, than Chris and Paul! What an achievement! We know how beautiful this home is, but to be recognized by a panel of judges, makes us feel even more proud of this home.
Chris Lynn designed this home, and also worked hands on with our crew of professional sub trades for 8 months to complete this project. Most gulf islands builds can take up to 2 years, but Tamlin pre-manufactured lots of the house components to speed up the on site construction times. This home is on a 300′ high bluff that overlooks Center Bay on Gambier Island. The site is barge and boat access only. The homeowners were amazing and are happily living in the home of their dreams.
