On Friday, January 13, 2017, Bartelt took home two gold Wisconsin Remodelers Awards (WRAs). Our team was recognized in the Basement Over $100,000 and Entire House $500,001 – $750,000 categories.
“We are very proud of this achievement,” said Rick Bartelt, owner. “These awards are the result of the creativity and expertise of our entire team, including our designers, carpenters, production staff, trade partners, and clients. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”
The Wisconsin Remodelers Awards is an annual event hosted by the Milwaukee NARI Home Improvement Council, Inc. It is an opportunity to honor the outstanding work its members have accomplished throughout the year.
The winning Bartelt projects each had unique components. The Basement Over $100,000 project was originally a blank canvas. The homeowners wanted another living space that both the adults and teenagers could enjoy. It needed to be a fun area to watch movies, entertain, and relax. The remodeled space offers a comfortable and contemporary spot for the family. It features a bar with pepper gray cabinetry, a stacked stone backsplash, and textured granite. Neighboring the bar, a modern fireplace with a floating hearth serves as the focal point of the lower level. The lower level also includes a theater room with a “starry” ceiling – the perfect spot for the kids!
After previous remodels, the Entire House $500,001 – $750,000 home was dated, and the spaces lacked unity. The homeowners wanted to enhance the home’s original charm, creating a cohesive design throughout the various rooms, while highlighting their eclectic style and accommodating their modern lifestyle. The remodel features a new mudroom, kitchen expansion, family room, butler’s pantry, first floor bathroom, dining room, and master bathroom. Throughout the project, it was important to increase the natural light in the home and make the spaces more conducive to entertaining. Now, the home is a balanced mix of the homeowners’ eclectic taste and more traditional details.
