Winner Named In Kitchen Remodel Competition

Schaefferstown, PA Co-sponsor Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry has announced the winner of the This Old House "Dream Kitchen Contest" Mike & Heidi Smith of Chicago and the commencement of the couple's custom kitchen remodeling project.

This Old House, a major consumer shelter publication with a circulation of more than 800,000, joined with the Today show to search America, inviting homeowners to submit their kitchens to be featured as the next This Old House project. During "Dream Kitchen" week, from Nov. 11-15, 2002, Today featured six semi-finalists resulting from the search. Additionally, the crew from This Old House was on hand to offer expert advice on some of the issues involved in a kitchen renovation. Viewers voted online on Nov. 14 for their favorite kitchen, and the winners, the Smiths, were announced Nov. 15 on Today.

The progress of the Smiths' kitchen transformation will be covered by both PBS and Today. The project is expected to be completed by next month.

Product sponsors for the "Dream Kitchen" project include Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry, GE Light Bulbs, KitchenAid, Kohler Co. and Mohawk. "We're excited about this opportunity, and we offer congratulations to the Smiths," said Vince Achey, v.p./sales and marketing for Plain & Fancy.
