Ginger Bread House Competition

Kristi, Andrea, Brian L. and myself were on a mission to ultimately make the coolest friggin’ ginger bread house ever. Throw in red vines, cotton candy, gum drops, marshmallows, giant peppermint sticks and a torch and we had a recipe for success. That’s right, the crew won FIRST PLACE in the Interceramic Gingerbread House Design contest. There were around 34 amazing entries but it was our innovative double decker treehouse design that caught the judges eye. Additionally, our very own Robi Kaseman and Mark Posnick designed a house that, by the looks of it, took a measly 60 hours to complete. It was a fantastic homage to green building from its green roof, sun shades, rain water collection and skylights down to its painstakingly detailed USGBC seal.

Competitions like these are great outlets for showcasing your flair and for exercising your ability to be innovative and think outside of the proverbial box. W+P has been making a great showing at these local competitions and, by consistently placing, proving that W+P has designers that are rich with talent and panache...and it's a ton of fun!
