The Remodelers Association of the GBAHB Annual Skeet Shoot The Remodelers Association of the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders (GBAHB) recently hosted the Remodelers Skeet Shoot on Oct. 27 at Selwood Farm in Alpine, AL. Teams in both the morning and afternoon flights were awarded prizes for best scores, and raffle prizes such as shotguns, YETI coolers and more were given away to attendants at the end of the event.

“This was such an exciting event, and we are thankful to everyone who came out and participated,” said Liz Kennedy, sales representative for CR Home of Alabama. “We love bringing the community together for networking events like the annual skeet shoot, and we are looking forward to having an even better turn out next year!”

With more than 225 participants, this year’s skeet shoot saw almost twice as many participants as last year, and it was an extremely successful event for both networking and business. Those who participated were top remodelers in Birmingham, as well as vendors and local new home builders. CR Home of Alabama and Cambria sponsored the Turkey Shoot and were able to have one on one time with individual shooters.

The GBAHB provides the voice of the housing industry, advocating for quality-built homes and promoting the highest level of professionalism. They are one of the top five local home builders associations in the country, and they have the potential to expand organizations customer bases and awareness of the home building industry.

Construction Resources Installs Cambria in Designer Showhouse at Serenbe Nestled in the trees alongside expansive hiking trails and a breathtaking lake, and right around the corner from quaint shops, restaurants and a general store is the 2015 Serenbe Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Designer Showhouse.

This low country-style, 3,700 square-foot home at Serenbe, a sustainable community just outside of Atlanta, features a remarkable design from architect James P. Curran. Inspired by the symmetrical style of the late A. Hays Town, Curran crafted the home with the materials of more than 10 designers.

One of the designers featured in the home is Cambria, the largest manufacturer of natural quartz that offers the most diverse design palette in North America. Recently, groups were granted access to this one-of-a-kind home as part of the second annual designer showhouse tour at Serenbe, where guests could find Cambria in a variety of places throughout the home.

Construction Resources installed Cambria Dunmore in the kitchen perimeter and bathroom, where it adds an elegant simplicity to both of these spaces. Greys and blacks in Cambria’s Devon bring a peaceful, neutral tone to the home’s kitchenette and master bathroom, while the relaxed yet rugged look of Templeton does the same in another bathroom. The white, bright Cambria Whitehall was installed in the basement guest bathroom and beautifully utilized as a countertop in the laundry room.

In addition to these beautiful designs from Cambria’s Desert collection, Construction Resources also installed silver wave marble in the master shower, Pietra gray honed marble on the kitchen island, Calacatta gold marble in the powder room and black pearl honed granite in the outdoor kitchen.

This spectacular home also features a timber frame, a broad wood-shake shingle roof and French doors leading to a spacious back porch with views of Grange Lake.

To see the designs featured in the designer showhouse and all of Cambria’s 124 designs, visit For more information on Construction Resources and its installations, visit More information about Serenbe and the 2015 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle Designer showhouse can be found online at
