Ward-Young Architecture & Planning has received the 2011 Residential Modification Project Award.

The firm received the award for the Schweichler residence, which was deisnged by Don Fulda and Ryan Rominger. The home, built by Loverde Builders Inc., is located in Meeks Bay and was created with a minimal foundation foodprint and connection to the lake. The landscape design was done by Betty Anderson-Fulda and the landscaping and site restoration work was done by Green Envy Inc. and Chuck Conway.

The Residential Modification Award is one of Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Best in the Basin awards, which recognize projects that demonstrate exceptional planning, design and compatibility with the Lake Tahoe environment.

Sotheby’s International Realty in Zephyr Cove is now doing business as Sierra Sotheby’s International Realty.

The firm was purchased last month by a Denver-based Sotheby’s International Realty affiliate company. Industry veterans Scott Webber and Thomas Wright, the company’s new owners, will oversee Sierra SIR’s growth. The company has already established new offices on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore in Squaw Valley and on the West Shore.

The North Tahoe Business Series will host two more workshops about business planning.

“Financial Projections” will be held April 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. The workshop will discuss how to determine startup or expanion costs, how to build financial projects and how to analyze cash flow.

Both workshops will be held at the Tahoe City Public Utility District Board Room, 221 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City.
