2010 KCH&G Silver Award-Best Whole House Remodel $200,000-$500,000

The Challenge: Progressing through the design despite setbacks such as shipping delays while still maintaining focus on the details of the space.

The Result: A porch projection with a cross member of trim molding and a decorative louver vent balances the front elevation of the home’s exterior and provides protection to guests. Leading to the redesigned master suite is a hallway accented by inlaid hardwood flooring, wainscot paneling and blown-glass sconces. Carrara marble set in a herringbone pattern is prominent throughout the master bath, which also features espresso-stained cherry cabinetry and Calcutta honed marble. The additional bathrooms include elegant touches such as amber glass wall tile, a roomy shower with Euro glass surround and a mahogany vanity counter.

The Judges Liked: The exterior transformation, which adds to the curb appeal.
