DELAVAN, WI (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Stebnitz Builders, a design-build home remodeling company serving homeowners in southeastern Wisconsin, has received Professional Remodeler’s 2005 “Best of the Best” national design award for whole-house remodeling over $501,000.00. Stebnitz also won the 2005 “Best of the Best” in the Midwest. The award recognizes outstanding design, quality construction and exceptional value in a remodeling project.

According to Chris Stebnitz, one of three owners, “Our whole team is delighted to receive this award because it validates that our methodology of Procedural Listening – keeping the homeowner highly involved, blending distinct design and functionality and focusing on high-quality craftsmanship – results in the best possible project.”

Jim and Kathie Hill, owners of the Williams Bay, Wisconsin, home, collected pictures of finishes, rooms and architectural elements to describe the home they wanted. “We shared these with the Stebnitz design team to show them, and tell them, what we wanted,” explains Jim Hill. “The interior design was truly a collaboration between Kathie and the Stebnitz team. We’re delighted with our home!”

The project is featured in the October 2005 issue of Professional Remodeler. The judges were particularly impressed with the exquisite craftsmanship on the exterior of the home. “The trim details, the stone cladding, custom windows and matching boathouse all impressed us. Stebnitz earned additional points for working on a particularly challenging site that made executing the design and construction difficult. Finally, the theme of the home carries from the exterior to the interior and throughout every room.”

“When our clients came to us with half-finished plans to remake their 30-year-old cottage from an outmoded Tudor style into a cozy Nantucket home, we knew there was ample opportunity to literally re-create this home to take full advantage of the lake views and access while doubling the living space, upgrading the finishes and improving energy efficiency,” describes Stebnitz.
