Chrysalis Awards 2005

Everyone has their personal favorites — the project that defines what their remodeling company stands for — quality workmanship and above all great design. Each year the Chrysalis Awards honors the best of those special projects from every region of the country. This year is no different. At the Southern Building Show in Atlanta, Qualified Remodeler magazine was proud to be a sponsor of the Chrysalis Awards ceremony. Scores of remodeling firms were present to be recognized and to collect their awards. The stars of the evening were the projects themselves. In the next few pages we present to you a list of the winners as well as some photos of the top projects.
