2019 Spring Parade of Homes Winners
Home of the Year Winners
Congratulations to all of our Builders in the 2019 Spring Parade of Homes
The 2019 Spring Parade of Homes, hosted by the Polk County Builders Association (PCBA), started off
with the Kick-Off Party held at this spring’s showcase home builder, Easy Homes 123 at 934 O’Doniel
Drive in Lakeland. With over 100 attendees, the Kick-Off Party was a spectacular hit with delicious food
provided by Stephanie Catlett with MidFlorida Credit Union.
This Spring’s Parade of Homes features twenty-six new homes, ranging in price from $190,000 to over
$600,000 with two community entries and two pool entries. Judges awarded eight pricing categories of
homes in Polk County with five subcategories for each pricing category: best exterior; best floor plan;
best kitchen; best master bath and best overall quality.
A special thank you goes out to our Sponsors, MidFlorida Credit Union, Aveco Electric and SprayPro.
Thank you to our judges, drivers and committee members, without the volunteers of the Polk County
Builders Association, these events would not be possible.
Out of eight pricing categories, there were four builder’s homes that swept all five subcategories and
received the “Home of the Year” award: KB Homes, the 1541 model in Cayden Reserve; Richmond
