House Plan Gallery, a leading nationally-published designer of stock house plans, wins “Most Marketable Portfolio – Overall” award from leading homeplan publisher Hanley Wood.

Hattiesburg, MS – January 30, 2009 – House Plan Gallery is a leading, Hattiesburg, Mississippi-based home design firm that has been marketing its highly-popular collection of over 200 stock house plans for over ten years.

On January 14th, 2009 at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, House Plan Gallery was awarded the “Most Marketable Portfolio – Overall” award by Hanley Wood, one of the North America’s leading house plan publishers.

The award was given at the 2009 Hanley Wood Top 25 Stock Home Plan Designers banquet, and was House Plan Gallery’s first time to win this particular award, and sixth consecutive design award for the marketability of its plan collection and the company’s commitment to providing the highest levels of customer service.

As our home plans collection has grown, in both size and diversity, we’ve been able to partner with the largest house plan publishers in the industry. Hanley Wood is, clearly, one of the leading publishers in the market, and we’re very privileged to be able to work closely with their team to provide the highest-quality, and most-popular house plans in the industry, noted Mark Mathis, President of House Plan Gallery.

In 2007, House Plan Gallery won two awards – one for “Top 25 Home Designer” and one for “Most Marketable Portfolio – Builders”.  As a followup in 2008, the company’s designs won the same two awards for a second year in a row.  And in 2009, the company won the “Top 25 Home Designer” award, in addition to the highly-coveted Most Marketable Portfolio – Overall award, which recognizes the designer with the highest sales volume as it relates to the total number of house plans in their portfolio.

House Plan Gallery primarily designs floor plans from 600 to 3,000 square feet of living space, in a wide variety of Architectural styles including Southern, Country, Traditional, Craftsman, European and French Country.

The company is also one of the first, and only, home design firms to offer full video walkthroughs of their top home designs, which can be viewed on their website at  #1 Podcast on How to Build Your Dream Home!

“We understand that our clients place a high value on being able to see additional photos, videos, and/or additional details for a fully-constructed version of a house plan that they’re interested in,” noted Stephen Mathis, Vice President of House Plan Gallery.  “That’s why, where possible, we actually go out to constructed models of our homes and record a lengthy walkthrough video, in which we’ll also include running narration as we’re walking through.” 

“At the same time, we’re also developing alternate videos for many of our other home designs, where we walkthrough an entire floorplan and provide specific designer insight as to the layout of the home, floorplan features, and popular modification requests for that particular plan.  We’ve found that our customers really enjoy these types of videos, and it provides an additional level of understanding on the quality of design and livability that our clients can expect when purchasing a House Plan Gallery design,” continued Stephen.
