RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its launch in May, there have been many positive adjectives thrown around about the homes in Forge Creek at Flowers Plantation. The Southeast Builders Conference (SEBC) added another term to describe Elevates Homes' offerings in Clayton (N.C):

Award winning.

At their 39th-annual Aurora Awards, the SEBC lauded three of the Elevate designs with five honors, including two Grand Aurora recognitions from about 400 entries.

Architectural firm Housing Design Matters, Inc. brought home Grand Auroras in the Best Single Family Detached Home 2,000 to 2,499 sq. ft. for the Enthusiast model and Best Single Family Detached Home under 2,000 sq. ft. for the Virtuoso model.

Builders Design won silver in Best Interior Merchandising for Elevate's Enthusiast, Virtuoso and Adventurer models.

Elevate Homes is Dan Ryan Builders' active-adult brand. Forge Creek was the first community for Elevate with Adalyn Place in Fuquay-Varina (N.C.) coming online later this year.

"When most people think about innovative home design, age-targeted, active-adult communities may not come to mind," said Dan Ryan Builders' VP of Branding Char Kurihara. "It was our goal with Elevate to flip that script. These awards from the SEBC are proof that we are doing that with our partners at Housing Design Matters and Builders Design."
