Gold and Janus Award

Jackson & LeRoy Remodeling, Salt Lake City

This 1948 stick-frame home was rundown and forgotten. The new owners’ objective was to create a design that would blend into the existing economic and social fabric of the neighborhood. The owners also wanted to incorporate energy and environmentally conscious products into every phase of the remodeling process. The result is a revived, energy-efficient, water-wise and livable home that is a perfect fit for the community.



Marrokal Design & Remodeling, San Diego

The clients purchased this 12-acre ranch near a small town in central coastal California with the goal of remodeling the existing 18-year-old nondescript house and developing the site to make it suitable for horses. The existing house was remodeled in American farmhouse and Craftsman styles. An existing barn was retrofitted as a garage for some of the owners’ car collection with storage above and a man cave below, and another barn was built. The house features a large master suite, open central area and two guest rooms, as well as a wrap-around porch that helps create a timeless, elegant farmhouse.



Stephen C. Gidley Inc., Darien, Conn.

This 3,000-square-foot remodel made a 1950s colonial into a serene Adirondack-style home. The owners’ primary desire was to incorporate sustainable products while utilizing recycled building materials. The homeowners also were interested in maximizing energy efficiency, minimizing waste and emphasizing quality craftsmanship and custom millwork throughout the project.



R.A.W. Concepts

In 2006, a fire swept through this 1911 home. The swift response of the local fire department saved the home from total ruin, but the entire back half of the second floor and attic were destroyed. Smoke damage and water from fighting the fire permeated the remaining rooms, forcing the family to relocate while their home was rebuilt. The owners wanted to maintain the flavor of their Edwardian-style home and improve upon the layout.
