This is our first major win in the Okanagan, where we’ve been bringing excellence to the luxury custom home industry since 2019. We’ve worked hard to bring our superior processes and quality, legacy homes to throughout the Okanagan Valley, a major centre of growth for Rockwood. We have expanded our Rockwood Okanagan team, and are creating a strong, recognized presence in central British Columbia. I’m grateful and thankful to all our Rockwooders who’ve worked hard for this recognition. Thanks also go to the CBHA-CO for putting on this great event and the judges that honoured us!
