Since 1993, the Chrysalis Awards have honored the finest remodeling projects in the country. Their goal is to provide consumers, remodelers, designers, architects, and editors with a resource for remodeling ideas and to identify companies that produce award-winning work. Applicants enter from all over the country. The awards cover almost every category and price range of remodeling. This year, Kaufman Construction has been awarded Best Finished Basement!
This 1,900 sq. ft. basement remodel and addition added some incredible living and entertainment space to this home.

A new bedroom, walk-in closet and bathroom makes for a beautiful guest suite. A built-up floor was included to raise the bar as well as giving the living room a sunken feel. It also allowed the addition of tiered seating int he home theater. A niche was added to display an heirloom model boat and an antique shops porthole was incorporated in the door to the office. A tasting room and wine cellar with stained glass accents is located close to the bar, which is finished with granite countertops, a copper tile ceiling and cherry cabinetry.
