Pioneer Building's Custom Built HSC Lottery Home on 22 Greenlawn in North River Heights Has a Humble Elegance: Deadline to Buy Lottery Tickets is Midnight Nov 22

by Rhonda Spivak, Nov 17, 2017


Curtis Moffat CEO of Pioneer Building says that every custom home  his company builds, including the  HSC Lottery Home on 22 Greenlawn Street in North River Heights  is " a labour of love." 


"We are a boutique builder. We focus on taking on a smaller volume of projects, such that each and every project , including the home on 22 Greenlawn, is unique and one of a kind."


He notes  that the final deadline to buy lottery tickets to win the HSC Grand Prize Home on 22 Greenlawn is midnight Nov 22, 2017. (To buy tickets go to )


Pioneer Building designs homes which are "organic" with their surroundings. "We have a passion for what we are building. We respect natural surroundings. We take into account , for example, where the sun rises and sets, the topography, where the trees and the shade are," Moffat notes.


The location and neighborhood dramatically shaped the style and DNA of  the home  on 22 Greenlawn St. "Since the home was built in North River Heights, among those originally built in the mid 1900's, we included several classic elements such as a classic front portico, Pre-War millwork and crystal door knobs. The bones of  the home are intended to be in sync with the founding years of North River Heights, but we introduced modern furnishings and amenities to make the home current for today's lifestyle," he says.     


 "If a client is looking for a home that is specifically tailored to their needs, then our company would be  a great fit," Moffat emphasizes. "When we design a home, we draw inspiration from the uniqueness of each client's lifestyle."


Moffat  says he aims to  builds homes that are  "a work of art." He quotes from St Francis of Assisi who once said  "He who works with his hands is a Laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a CraftsmanHe who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an Artist."  


Pioneer Building wanted to build the HSC Lottery Home in River Heights since it is a very desirable neighborhood. "North River Heights  is enveloped with a canopy of ash trees, boutique shops and  fine restaurants that dot the streets. It is a great neighborhood to  raise a family with excellent schools and beautiful parks. The area is replete with  artistic turn of the century architecture that is very appealing." he says.


"People who have seen the  home on 22 Greenlawn Ave have noticed that it has a warm and cozy feel to it," Moffat points o
