Winning ‘Best of Parade’ Award is just part of the story

You know, there are some times where it’s a good thing to toot one’s own horn.

We’re blowing our horns and trumpets big-time!

We are pleased to announce that Cactus Companies won the “Best of Parade” Award for an amazing renovation of a waterfront home in Horseshoe Bay during the Hill Country Builders Association Parade of Homes builder awards ceremony in Marble Falls, Texas.

Besides the top award, we also received Best Master Suite and Bath, Best Architecture Features, Best Craftsmanship, and Best Outdoor Living awards at the ceremony, held on Oct. 10.

“We are incredibly pleased to have received such a high honor from the Hill Country Builders Association,” Grant Dean, owner of Cactus Companies, said. “Working on this house was such a unique and wonderful experience for all of us. Receiving the ‘Best of Parade’ Award, along with all the others combined, was so beautiful. None of this could have worked out as well as it did without the complete support of our entire team at Cactus. Their hard work and dedication are second to none.”

This palatial waterfront home’s renovation project includes a drive-through cascading river and lighted basketball court. Originally built in 2002, highlights also include a spectacular three-tiered pool with an upper volleyball pool, a 12,000-pound rock waterfall, a walk-in dry cave underneath the upper pool with a swim-up bar under the waterfall.

Additional parts of the award-winning home include:

  • An expansive 2,300-square-foot glass pool enclosure with automated open-roof panels
  • A 22-foot-by-18-foot-high concealed projector screen with a laser projector and sound system, which also includes a fiber optic night-sky ceiling designed to resemble old-time movie theaters
  • A fully-remodeled kitchen with new cabinetry and countertops
  • A custom bar area with a wine cellar constructed under an existing stairway
  • New master shower and bath areas
  • A new guest apartment with a steamboat slip
  • A two-story boathouse with 1,800 square feet of a covered deck area that includes two boat slips and a double wave-runner ramp
