Mangum Design-Build was pleased to be a part of the team that won “Best In Show” at the 2006 Southern Ideal Home Show this fall.  The Southern Ideal Home Show is an event that gathers over 200 vendors and distributors to showcase the latest products and services available for homes.  Headlining the event were the mainstays, Stock Building Supply and Fergusons, both owned by Irish parent company Wolseley PLC.  “We had a good turnout this year”, says Debbie Ball, the Executive Show Manager, for Southern Shows, “and Paul’s team did a wonderful job building a home in the Jim Graham building inside of 4 days”.

Regarding the breakneck pace of constructing a concrete masonry home in 4 days, Kevin Mangum said “I think I saw Ty Pennington (of Extreme Home Makeover) peeking around the corner taking notes.  Greg and I moved fast on this one to get it done.”

The booth sponsor was the Carolinas Concrete Masonry Association which recieves marketing support from Adams Products, Fay Block, and Johnson Concrete.  Paul LeVene is the President of the CCMA, and Kevin Mangum and Greg Messer were the builders responsible for constructing the home.
