Lincolnton, N.C. – Schumacher
, a leading on your lot
custom home builder and Ply
, a leading manufacturer of
residential exterior building products in North America, hosted a
ribbon cutting ceremony on October 26 at the Lincolnton, N.C. home of
Great Green Giveaway winners, Wray and Sarah Warner.

The ribbon cutting, attended by the Warners, representatives from
Schumacher Homes, Ply Gem and local vendors involved in the build,
marked the completion of the contest and gave attendees a chance to
tour the home for the first time. Custom built by Schumacher Homes, the
Craftsman-style house features a Designed Exterior by Ply Gem product
package of NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) Research Center
Green Approved windows, vinyl siding and stone valued at up to $30,000.

Upon winning the contest, the Schumacher design team worked with the
Warners to customize the initial home design adding Craftsman-style
details with input from BSB Design, an architectural firm that
specializes in using low-maintenance materials to achieve historically
accurate designs. The Ply Gem product package of ENERGY STAR rated
aluminum clad wood windows, insulated vinyl siding, polymer shakes and
shingles and stone veneer was worked into the design.

“At Schumacher Homes, our goal is to custom build energy
efficient houses, and we’re thrilled to see the
Warner’s dream home finally come to life,” said
Paul Schumacher, founder of Schumacher Homes. “Teaming up
with Ply Gem for the Great Green Giveaway
helped us take this goal one step further by awarding the Warner family
with home exterior products recognized for energy efficiency, low
maintenance and recycled content.”

The Great Green Giveaway began when Paul Schumacher of Schumacher Homes
won the first annual Designed Exterior by Ply Gem sweepstakes that took
place during the 2010 International Builders’ Show. As a
result, he kicked off the Great Green Giveaway in April 2010 passing
his prize onto potential customers and giving homebuyers around the
country planning to build with Schumacher Homes a chance to win. In May
2010, Lincolnton, N.C. residents Wray and Sarah Warner were announced
as contest winners; construction of their home began in early summer
and was completed in October 2010. Look for details about the second
