Granite State Builder Magazine, Summer 2019

President’s Letter

I am proud to announce that Sharon Wayman has been elected and hired as the new executive director of the New Hampshire Home Builders Association. Sharon has been with the Association for over 30 years, serving in various capacities — most significantly in the production of the New Hampshire State Home Show and as the account- ing manager. Over the years, she has experienced every aspect of our Association and she is truly deserving of the role to be the new ‘face’ of our Association. In the coming weeks, we will be actively seeking to hire an executive assistant to help Sharon carry out all the responsibilities the Association has to its members. Please join us in welcoming her to this new and exciting position.

The 52nd Annual New Hampshire State Home Show, held March 8-10 in Manchester, was again a great success! The show had 300 exhibitors, demonstrations and seminars, an 800-square-foot smart house displaying the latest in both indoor and outdoor smart home technology, an ‘Ugly Door’ contest, sponsored by Belletetes, Inc., which saw the winner receive a Masonite exterior door package, and of course the fourth annual Junior Lego Build Competition for kids aged 5-7 and 8-10, which was emceed by Laura from the Morning Buzz. The trophies for this year’s winners were miniature metal Lego figures made by exhibitor Third Shift Fabrication. Mark your calendar for the 2020 show, which will be held March 6-8 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Manchester. For more information about the show and to reserve your booth, contact Sharon Wayman at

Also, be sure to mark your calendar for the 2019 Cornerstone Awards, which will be held in October at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford. This long-standing event is an opportunity to showcase the very best projects completed in different categories including new construc- tion, additions, kitchens and bathrooms, and outdoor living. With more than 140 people in attendance last year, you will want to register for the event early. Look forward to seeing you there.

Lastly, I want to recognize the local EOs for all that they do. From simple gestures to remarkable events, they are the ones that bring real, granular value to us as members.
