The Remodeler of the Year Awards is an annual event hosted by NARI Milwaukee.  It is an opportunity to honor the outstanding work its members have accomplished throughout the year.

Entire House $500,001 – $750,000

The 1930s home had been gutted by another contractor who did not properly demo the house and eventually left it in disarray. The homeowners needed to make it livable for their young family, and they desired spaces that would reflect their style and acknowledge the era of the home. Now, the spaces are conducive to daily life and entertaining. The remodel features new hardwood floors, a family room with a vaulted ceiling, beams, and a restored “Church” window, a den with a linear gas fireplace, a functional kitchen with a cherry island top, and a large master suite.

Residential Interior $100,000 – $250,000

The 1930s home was dated and compartmentalized. The homeowners desired a functional layout that complemented their lifestyle. With the removal of walls and the addition of large archways, the first floor spaces are now open to one another while acknowledging the original scale of the home. The expanded kitchen features a navy island, a marble top, and high-end paneled appliances. A new mudroom offers practical storage and a buffer between indoor and outdoor spaces. The remodeled lower level has a rustic aesthetic and boasts a wet bar with reclaimed barn wood and a wine cellar.

Residential Kitchen $100,001 – $150,000

The homeowners’ kitchen was dated, dark and cramped. They wanted to create a space that reflected their style and was more conducive to their daily life. With the removal of walls, the remodeled kitchen is now open to other first floor spaces and accommodates the family of five’s needs.  It features an emerald green island, ample storage, high-end appliances, marble-look quartz tops, brass fixtures and hardware, furniture-style cabinetry and a zinc range hood. The space is a nod to the home’s original charm while mixing in the homeowners’ modern style.
