2011 Central Jersey CotY Award Winners Houghton Contracting, LLC Entire House Renovation Under $250,000: CotY Winner Since no remodeling had been done on this 1946 home, a complete renovation brought it into the 21st century. Gutting the bathrooms, kitchen and family room revealed termite and water damage. The main floor was transformed into an open great room with Brazilian Cherry flooring, showplace kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, all new appliances and custom stone backsplash. Bedrooms, stairs and hallway hardwood flooring were refinished; nail pops in the drywall were repaired; and a fresh coat of paint was applied throughout. R. Faucett Construction, Inc. with team partner Brett Webber Architects, PC Entire House Renovation $250,000 – $500,000: CotY Winner Transforming a 1970’s single-family home into a LEED and Energy Star certified contemporary residence is no small feat. Factor in the challenges—creek watershed and buffer requirements that prohibited increasing the footprint, and accessibility requirements of the homeowners—and this renovation truly deserves recognition. By building up and cantilevering off the foundation, the livable space was increased from 1,746 square feet to 2,455 square feet. Using existing wood framing for 45 percent of the total wood structure, closed-cell sprayfoam insulation, FSC-certified tropical wood on exterior decks, ramps and trim, hardwood flooring on more than 90 percent of the interior, non-VOC and Low-VOC materials and finishes, this team rose to the challenge. . Stone-Glidden, Inc. Home Theaters & Media Rooms over $150,000: CotY Winner With an unfinished basement as a blank slate, Stone-Glidden used imagination and skilled craftsmanship to create a family entertainment area allowing for flexible use, Making a space sound and look good but not easy to use is a failure, according to Mark Glidden. Installing One Touch controls to adjust lighting throughout the area, to switch between controlling music or video, and to adjust levels of light and sound are critical. The centerpiece of the renovation is a 12-seat luxurious three-sided bar that provides viewing of the billiards, movie and aquarium areas. CENTRAL JERSEY NARI 2011 ANNUAL DIRECTOR Y 45 . . . R. Faucett Construction, Inc. with team partner Atlantic Tile & Marble, LLC Residential Addition over $250,000: CotY Winner Making an existing house into a customer’s dream home was achieved through enhanced architectural integrity of the existing residence while customizing the details to reflect the homeowners’ lifestyle. The relatively small master bedroom was expanded to create a spacious suite offering the clients a comfortable and quiet retreat from their teenage children. Renovating the master bath, converting the master bedroom into a library/study and adding a new master bedroom, closet and sitting area, achieved the homeowners dream. The details of tray ceiling with recessed cove lighting, barrel-vaulted ceiling with concealed light shelf in the sitting area, and back-to-back masonry fireplace in the master bedroom truly speak elegance.
