2008 Best of the Best Design Award Judges
Green building practices and products are becoming more readily used in every type of project, from kitchens to whole house remodels and everything in between.
That certainly was apparent in this year's Best of the Best Design Award entries, as the majority of projects in this year's competition featured at least some form of green building practices and products. (For more on how green can be effectively incorporated into an award winning design scheme, see The Green Room.) With a record 335 entries in 20 categories — including the debut of our Whole-House Green Remodel category — that was no small accomplishment and didn't go unnoticed by our panel of judges.
This year, 58 projects received awards at the Remodeling Show, including seven Platinum awards and one project chosen by our judges as The Best. For an expanded photo slideshow of all of this year's winning projects, log on to www.ProRemodeler.com/designawards.
