Dana Day Chosen as Spirit Award Winner
TULSA LOCAL DANA DAY CHOSEN AS HBA SPIRIT AWARD WINNER
In 1989, the Home Builders Association of Greater Tulsa began recognizing builders who made the best use of HBA Associate member companies to complete their homes. The Spirit Award is one of the HBA of Greater Tulsa’s highest honors, as it symbolizes the relationship between the contractor and the subcontractor and how very important it is when building a home to use only qualified craftsmen and suppliers. Each year, many worthy companies enter projects for consideration of this honor, which are then analyzed by an accounting firm to determine which projects involved the greatest percentage of work by HBA Associate members.
Dana Day, founder of Day Build and Design, was selected as this year’s Spirit Award honoree in recognition of the construction of a 4,591 sq. ft modern farmhouse in midtown Tulsa which was featured in the 2018 Parade of Homes. This custom-built home features unique amenities specifically designed for its homeowners such as a man cave that transitions to an exterior covered porch and a two-level hidden alcove for children’s play. An eclectic blend of hardware and fixtures throughout the home highlights the custom-designed metal fireplace surround and kitchen range vent a hood. The home received a HERS® Index rating of 50 that certified the home’s energy efficient construction features, and provided a substantial energy credit to the homeowners as well as their assurance of the home’s performance energy wise. Mrs. Day employed 32 HBA Associate member firms on this project and over 40 HBA Associate member businesses on other projects throughout the year.
