2020 Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence

authors Ken Kanline | October 14, 2020

The Chrysalis Awards program recognizes the nation’s best remodeling and design work and is open to all remodeling and design professionals in the United States.

This year almost 100 projects were honored as winners of the Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. The winning projects were determined based on overall design, creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.

Pictures of the 2020 award-winning projects, and all winning projects since 2000, can be seen on the Chrysalis website: www.chrysalisawards.com.

In addition to the project awards, this year Chrysalis also honors Sockeye Homes of Kent, Washington, and Kowalski Construction Inc. of Phoenix, Arizona, who have demonstrated a history of excellence by winning a Chrysalis Award in 10 separate years since 2000, by presenting them with the Decade of Excellence Award.
