COMMON MISTAKES TO AVOID

  • The floor plans submitted must be to scale at 1/8” or 1/4”. Listing NTS on your floor plans means your drawings will not be acceptable and your score will be reduced.
  • Before photos are required in all Residential projects, unless they are entered in the new construction categories. Commercial renovation projects must also include a before photo. The lack of inclusion of a photo will reduce the overall score.
  • Not completing all the information, as in leaving any section of the project description blank. Again, our judges need the full story to adequately score your entries. Final scores will reflect the lack of completion.
  • Permission forms are required. If they are not completed or included, the project will be disqualified.
