Double award winning remodel is a Phoenix risen from the ashes.
Master Remodelers Inc.February 26, 2013
Our own 1952 home has been totally renovated following a devastating fire in 2011. It features a new kitchen and 900 sq. ft. family room addition, plus state-of-the-art green systems. Since completion in late 2012, it has won 2 awards.

We assembled a unique project team—energy rater/architect, interior designer, landscape designer, and engineer—to shape a Vision for this very personal project. It would reflect our company’s commitment to award-winning remodeling and green building.

While major damage was limited to the kitchen and dining areas, every room suffered smoke or water damage. Therefore, our renovation encompassed the entire home, plus included enhanced outdoor living spaces (new water feature, landscaping, fire pit and enlarged patio). With new furnishings, fixtures and artwork, our family chose a mid-century modern decor, with features a la TV’s ‘Mad Men’ series.

"Not just another pretty face..."
During the rebuild, our home achieved certification as an ENERGY STAR Qualified Home. Features include:
• shallow wall foundation
• structural insulated panels roof system
• high velocity HVAC system
• low-flow water heads
• recycled, reclaimed materials
• insulating, sound deadening ceiling panels
• radiant floor heating with Energy Star condensing boiler
• integrated continuous ventilation system
• high U-factor windows and doors
• smart technology lighting system with LEDs

Great. We do too. I didn't mention initially that it was our own house; just changed the copy to reflect that. You can see more photos on our Houzz page.

A home destroyed by a fire is a very traumatic event, and yet a way to start over and create a home that is specifically made for you, unlike most of the homes we move in to that we try to make our own, but are never perfect. So there is something special about those circumstances, and you have made
the home of your dreams in an ecologically sound way. Congratulations, and may you enjoy it for many many years to come.
