Belmont Bathroom remodel
2009-07-15 · By Editor
Good Home Construction, a small general construction company that specializes in restoring and renovating historical and architecturally significant homes in Southern California, is honored to win a 2009 Chrysalis Regional Award for Best Bathroom Under $40,000, for its renovation of a 1920s-era cottage bungalow bathroom in Belmont Heights.
The original bathroom was only 35 sq. ft. and had fallen in disrepair over the years. The company was called in to expand the bathroom by 2 additional feet and to convert the bathtub to a full-standing shower with a shower seat. What was special about this renovation was that it managed to give the homeowners the feeling of spaciousness and modern conveniences they were looking for while retaining the period-appropriate vintage appeal of the 1920s.
“This is our first time entering in a national competition, and to win in this highly competitive category is quite an achievement,” said Chuck Kensicki, responsible managing officer at Good Home Construction. “This is a testament to the fact that a renovation doesn’t always have to look trendy, and preserving a design integrity that’s compatible with the age of the home is very much desirable. We look forward to continue delivering high quality craftsmanship for our clients and to create more award-winning spaces.”
Since 1993, the Chrysalis Awards have been recognizing the finest remodeling projects around the country that reflect the professional excellence of the residential and commercial remodeling industry. Judged by editors and writers of Better Homes & Gardens, Woman’s Day Home Remodeling & Makeovers, Southern Living Magazine and Sunset Magazine, this year’s winners were selected from over 504 entries. The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.
“This was the first year they have entered the awards, and to take home top honors on their first attempt is impressive,” says Ken Kanline, director of the Chrysalis Awards.
