Vanberg Construction, San Diego, vanbergconstruction.com Project name: Tuscan Transformation Location: Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. Square footage: 275 Cost: $242,593 Vanberg Construction partnered with Linda Medina Interior Design to remodel a kitchen with Tuscan influence. Everything was removed, except the tile floor, and started over again to meet the clients' needs. Notable elements include on-site hand-hewed ceiling beams, real stonework and a 500-lb. custom copper vent hood with bronze strapping and rivets. To install the hood, the island was boxed in plywood and a temporary scaffold built over the island. Six workers then lifted, maneuvered and held the hood in place until it was secured to the ceiling. GOLD Room Remodel CG&S Design-Build, Austin, Texas, cgsdb.com Project name: Mud Room Reinvented Location: Cedar Park, Texas Square footage: 210 Cost: $74,285 A family with young twin boys had a laundry room off the garage entrance with enough space for a small mud sink and refrigerator. It also doubled as a backpack and coat drop-off zone. Removing the wall between the existing room and an underutilized spare bedroom created extra space and new Alder cubbies and a bench provide storage for shoes, coats and bags. The refrigerator, sink and washer/dryer are lined along the opposite wall with overhead storage. The space also includes an apron sink, marble folding counter, improved lighting and a three-panel glass door leading to the backyard. One of the main challenges was marrying the new design with the existing two-story floor trusses. New support beams cantilever through existing spaces, which provides needed support for the second floor.
