Tonight we’ll find out which of our ten entries into the Remodelers Council STAR Awards will be selected as “best of the best”. We’re excited, results posted tomorrow. It will be a GREAT time for all.
We have finished the screened porch project in Cary. The final photos will soon be up on our website but here is a brief selection. The owners have already begun entertaining and I expect that will continue year round. With the fire place and the Ezy-Breeze window panels it should be toasty whenever they want to enjoy the outdoors. Screened porches are one of the best outdoor living home improvements that can be done. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This will surely be a STAR Awards entry for the Remodelers Council competition, we’ll keep you posted after the awards banquet.
Hey, I have an idea – wouldn’t you love to have your own screened porch, or kitchen, or bath, or new master suite. Just saying.
They got spring and fall mixed up but still THE BIG(GEST) SHOW. We have been working hard on our remodeled home show booth (yes we have to remodel as well as our customers). Come by the Southern Ideal Home Show next weekend to see what we have done. More room for photos and displays. We will be focusing again this fall on the Certified Aging In Place Specialist theme. There are some great ideas that are easy and cheap to incorporate into a remodeling project. We will also have pictures on display of our three STAR Award Gold winning projects. There is so much going on you have to come. If you would like to have FREE passes just call our office and speak with Marcia 303-0758 and she’ll get them out to you next week.

Last Thursday evening was the STAR Awards banquet. The whole gang was there along with their significant others. Of the six entries we were graciously awarded three gold awards. Best Accessible Remodel, Best Attic, and Best Room Addition. Special shout out and thank you to all of our clients who allowed us to bring the judges into your homes and for taking the time to complete the customer questionnaire. This is one of the few remodeling competitions where the owners get to comment and the judges actually visit all of the jobs. There were 96 entries this year (amazing considering the economy) which amounts to $12 million in remodeling activity.
Everyone had a grand time at the STAR Awards banquet last night. In addition to seeing some fabulous work and having a fun time, of the seven entries we left with four recognitions. The company and our wonderful staff did very well. I actually got Marcia and Mark up on stage. Chris refused (I think he is really hiding something). Our awards included: Gold Award – Best Accessible Remodel under $100,000 for Eleanor’s screened porch, Silver Award – Best Kitchen $30 – $75 for DJ & Mark’s kitchen, Gold Award – Best Room Renovation for Michelle and Mark’s living room conversion, Gold Award – Best Website (Thanks Marcia & Vision Point Marketing) . For everyone who’s project we entered and who didn’t take a trophy, you are all winners in our book and your projects are locked into our memory.
