2018 Regional Best Outdoor Living  over $75,000

Lewis Builders of Carmel has announced it has won an award at the 2018 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence.

Lewis Builders won in the category Outdoor Living over $75,000, one of more than 90 remodeling companies from across the United States named winners. 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.

The Chrysalis Awards program, begun in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in 15 general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. The Chrysalis Awards are open to any professional remodeler and design professional in the United States.

“We are honored to be recognized for the quality of our work and design from such a prestigious company,” said John Lewis, founder and owner of Lewis Builders.

“In 1977, a developer built this house on top of a hillside with 360-degree city and mountain views, without any regard to how to enjoy those views,” wrote Lewis about the award-winning remodel. “Thirty-nine years later, the home finally blossomed with this new outdoor living space.

“The interior floor plan was adjusted to take advantage of the best views; kitchen/dining rooms now open to the outdoors. The new outdoor living space is complete with kitchen, bar, kegerator, and diamond-shaped cement patio with firepit. Both sunrises and sunsets can be now be seen from the sitting areas on the wraparound deck.”

Winning entries will be featured in July’s issue of Qualified Remodeler magazine.
