Hines Homes, LLC of Sequim won a state remodeling award from the the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW) at the association’s 2022 Excellence in Remodeling Awards held at Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Wa., earlier this month.
Hines Homes, LLC won the award in the Entire House ($400,001 – $600,000) division.
According to BIAW, clients approached Hines Homes after acquiring their aging parents’ 1956 home.
“They wanted to improve the layout of the home while getting the most out of its waterfront views. In the planning stages, the clients stressed the importance of higher-level quality finishes and details. They also expressed the desire to incorporate mid-century modern architecture and design that could accept modern and eclectic styles.
“In addition to creating continuity throughout the new and existing portions of the home, some of the challenges faced in this project included: proper asbestos abatement, substantial structural engineering that required extensive reinforcement to the existing foundation with new footings, reframing the roof of the primary living area to allow for a greater view of the waterfront, and removing and rebuilding an existing addition.
“The homeowners also wanted to protect and refinish the existing white oak flooring, providing a seamless continuation of matching flooring across all areas of the home.
“Being creative, flexible and working carefully with the homeowners as a team, Hines Homes delivered a finished product that met all of the clients’ hopes and needs.”
The BIAW awards recognized the top remodelers across 25 different categories out of 57 entries.
Industry experts reviewed and scored each project based on aesthetics, special or unique design solutions, quality craftsmanship, appropriate building materials, budgetary considerations and the challenges the project’s design requirements faced, association representatives said.
