Finalist in Baltimore Magazine Home & Design Awards
In it’s April issue, Baltimore Magazine presented the finalists from their inaugural Home & Design Awards. This local competition recognizes architects, interior designers, builders, artisans, and landscape designers. A distinguished panel of nationally renowned professionals judged the entries in 33 categories. Parker Design Build Remodel was honored to be recognized as a finalist in the Design Build category for their work on the Caves Valley project in Owings Mills, Maryland.
The magazine noted, “As one of the last historic houses built in Caves Valley, this place has an interesting story to tell. Built in 1936, it served as home to Thomas Jefferson’s great grandson. The original 15×13 kitchen would be a little small for a modern family, so a decision was made to move the kitchen, tear down walls, and transform the dining room, butler’s pantry, and wet bar into more functional space. Every homeowner has certain elements they want to include in their dream renovation project, for this family, preserving some of the historic elements was key including retaining the 18th century offset knobs and refinishing the floors to provide warmth, charm, and consistency throughout the home.”
Parker’s Caves Valley project was also selected as one out of six Readers Choice finalists by Baltimore Magazine, for Best Overall Home. “It’s always an honor to have our hard work recognized, in local and national publications, but it’s ultimately the client satisfaction that brings the most reward,” notes Chris Parker, President of Parker Design Build Remodel.
Parker has received multiple awards from industry associations, publications, and is one of the only Maryland remodeling contractors with a consistent A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. Learn more about the complete story behind the Caves Valley Project and view photos.
