Chrysalis Awards '06

Since 1993, the Chrysalis Awards have honored the finest remodeling projects in the nation that reflect the professional excellence of the residential and commercial remodeling industry.

The 2006 Chrysalis Awards brought in 550 entries in 16 categories which culminated with 101 winners in four regions. This year, baths and whole house remodels were practically tied for the second highest number, reflecting a dramatic increase in whole house entries.

The Chrysalis Awards’ judges include editors and writers of consumer publications such as Better Homes & Gardens, Woman’s Day’s Home Remodeling & Makeovers, Southern Living Magazine and Sunset Magazine. The projects are judged on design, use of materials, use of space and integration into the existing space. Overall, the judges remarked that the quality of the projects submitted continues to increase every year.

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 project themselves. In the next few pages, we present to you a list of the winners as well as some photos of the top projects.
