Morse wins three remodeling awards

backyard1w

Morse Remodeling Inc. and Custom Homes of Davis was honored recently with Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. 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 or home.

All three projects were designed and managed by Morse employees. The Davis based design-build home building and remodeling company received a national award in the Residential Interior Under $100,000 category and two western regional awards in the Outdoor Living and Residential Specialty Item categories.

The interior design-build project, in a home on Russell Boulevard west of Davis, featured the entire renovation of a guest suite. The design included the use of live edge western cypress wood slabs separating a free-standing tub and shower area from the bedroom. It also featured a tub filler mounted on a maple tree stump and manzanita branches as towel racks and grab bars.

The Outdoor Living project, at a home in Wildhorse, consisted of a full backyard remodel, including new pool with Caribbean shelf and shear descent waterfall, covered outdoor kitchen with barbecue and entertainment center, gas fire pit, spa, landscape lighting and decking throughout.

The Residential Specialty project, also located in Wildhorse, consisted of designing and renovating a wall of a dining room into a wine storage and art display center.

“Winning awards in multiple categories is difficult to do,” said Ken Kanline, director of the Chrysalis Awards. “Not only does this speak to Morse Remodeling’s versatility, but to their commitment to quality on every project.”

The Chrysalis Awards program, established in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in 16 general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The awards are open to any professional remodeler and design professional in the United States.

Photos of the winning projects can be viewed on the Morse Remodeling Inc. and Custom Homes Houzz.com website at www.houzz.com/pro/morseremodeling under the project titles Rustic Ranch Suite Retreat, Morse Outdoor Entertainment and Wine and Rec Room Remodel.

Morse Remodeling Inc. and Custom Homes, owned by Marty Morse, has been designing and renovating home construction projects since 1993 in Yolo County. Visit www.morseremodeling.com to learn more about the company and its services.
