And the Winner is….Avenue B earns 4 more Contractor of the Year Awards

Last night was the annual Austin NARI Contractor of the Year Awards. It was a great night for everyone who attended! Avenue B Development walked away with 4 awards this year! We are truly humbled by the success we have had. We won 3 CotY Awards and one Tour of Remodeled Homes award. Below is a brief description of each award and project of ours that won.

Historical Renovation/Restoration over $250,000 and Austin NARI Tour of Remodeled Homes People’s Choice Award – Ave G

4210 Avenue G is a quintessential 1927 craftsman in the heart of the Hyde Park neighborhood, a National and Local Historic District in Central Austin.  The scope of the 2014 renovation included modernizing and updating the original 1,200 square foot bungalow, while adding on a second story to accommodate a master suite and family room in a way that ensured that the home retained its contributing status as part of the Historic District.  The end result is a beautiful blending of old and new, historic and modern. The project earned the City of Austin’s first tax abatement approval under the new Remodeling Tax Abatement program, has been featured in several local magazines, and will be the spotlight in an upcoming HGTV magazine edition.

Kitchen $60,001 – $100,000 –Eason

1005 Eason is a 2,200 sf 1950 cottage in the Clarksville neighborhood of Austin.  The new owner, a single doctor, wanted a modernized interior that fit his style, and as a frequent entertainer, he wanted the kitchen to be the home’s true showcase.  Partnering with A Parallel Architecture, we were able to deliver a one-of-a-kind kitchen showcase that blends the modern with the traditional. The end result is a warm, sunny, and inviting space that draws people in to gather, cook, eat, and enjoy each other’s company.

 Entire House $250,000-$500,000- W 32nd

1707 West 32nd St is a home in the Brykerwoods neighborhood of Austin, part of the Old West Austin National Historic District.  The scope of the remodel and addition involved transforming a 1,200 square foot cottage into a 3,400 square foot home with 5 bedrooms, an office, and 4 baths for a growing family of 4.  While the home is the largest on its block, it was designed in a way that makes it feel warm, homey, and unobtrusive from the street front.
