Builders and remodelers reveal best homes of the year, part 1

Written by: Liz Miles

When David Bachman of Bachman Builders finished building a house in Franklin Park for a recently married couple, he knew right away he had built something he and his team could be proud of. So when he heard they won a 2014 Builders Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh award, he was honored, but not so much surprised.

“The award was the culmination of all the hard work everyone did,” he says. “Everyone watched the budget and still made sure the home had the important things the homeowners wanted. Even though it isn’t a large house, they fit a lot of detail into it.”

As for what exactly the homeowners wanted, Bachman says the husband wanted a rustic feel, while the wife wanted ample sunlight. They both wanted an open floor plan, space to work from home, and a loft.
