General Contractor and Owner Ben Becker had this to say regarding the Gold Award, “We are very excited to have received our first CotY award. It’s truly an honor to be recognized by peers and industry leaders alike.”

A custom laundry space was collaboratively designed and built as a specialty interior feature to create a functional space in a small underutilized hallway. This provided a first-floor laundry solution centrally located between the bathroom and kitchen spaces. It’s design choices are seamlessly integrated throughout the space, while concealing the appliances to visually mask its unique function.
