Recently, Berry Builders was honored with the "Best Overall" award for the 2009 Tour of Homes in the category of $750,000 and above. "We not only strive to assure that the homes are constructed structurally sound, but we also strive to offer a home that is very functional," says Wayne Berry, president of Berry Builders. When we first look at a design we intend to construct, we visually walk through the house and consider what changes we would make if we were actually going to live in the house ourselves."
