ATLANTA, GA, NOVEMBER 28, 2012 – Renewal Design-Build, one of the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Top 5 Remodelers, is proud to announce they received three awards at the 32nd OBIE Awards event held on Saturday, November 3, 2012.
Held annually by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, the OBIE Awards recognize achievement in building, remodeling, marketing and personal achievement categories. These coveted awards are the highest accolades given by the Atlanta housing industry.
"With this being the first time we entered the competition, we are honored to receive such acknowledgement," said Peter Michelson, CEO of Renewal. "It serves as a great recognition for the hard work of our designers, project managers and the entire Renewal team. It is fantastic to receive this type of recognition from our peers.”
Renewal took home the Gold OBIE award for Best Kitchen - $50,000 and over category. The winning project located in Decatur’s Winnona Park neighborhood required Renewal to re-imagine the floor plan to accommodate a growing family with a modern lifestyle. Converting the unused front rooms practically doubled the size of the original kitchen allowing for a generous island and ample storage. The kitchen also features beautiful finishes, custom tile, and built-in shelving. Renewal was able to reuse the original cabinetry, saving the homeowners a significant amount of money.

Renewal’s second Gold award came in the Marketing category for Best Website - Builder/Developer for www.renewaldesignbuild.com.
In addition to their Gold awards, Renewal won a Silver OBIE for the Residential Remodeling - Best Addition. With three children and one on the way, the homeowners were quickly outgrowing their three bedroom home. The value of this highly functional addition is not just in the three extra bedrooms, modern kitchen, and spacious mudroom, but in its added character and absolute seamlessness of the project. Renewal was able to successfully preserve the period of their 1940s home and the Decatur neighborhood. The keeping room features a wood burning fireplace, custom built-ins, and French doors leading out to the backyard. The exterior is a showpiece all on its own. From the charming color choices to the trim detailing, the addition enhances the home in every way. View the addition.
