Winner of The 2010 Chrysalis Remodeling Award

The Porch Company Wins 2010 Chrysalis Remodeling Award

The Porch Company ( is honored to be the Chrysalis Awards’ National Winner in the category of Outdoor Living.   We have previously won Regional Chrysalis Awards in 2000, 2001 and 2006 but this is our first national award.  The Porch Company teamed up with Site Works (  to transform a dated pool and back yard into an easily maintained outdoor living space including a pool pavilion, a fireplace and cooking station, and generous travertine patios to create gathering areas that can handle large parties or dinner for four.

A master plan insures that the structures and spaces meet the needs of the client in an aesthetic manner.  But it is the details that make the plan great.  On this project, we had drainage issues to resolve to insure function and long term maintenance. We took the function of drainage and turned it into a design element using rain chains and decorative urns to capture and release the water into strip drains strategically placed.  We also raised the curbing around the flower beds to hold mulch in place.

By repeating shapes, patterns and color we unified the elements and created accents.

About the Chrysalis Awards Program         

The Chrysalis Awards program, begun in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in fifteen general categories of residential and commercial remodeling, as well as National Remodeler of the Year winners. The Chrysalis Awards are open to any professional remodeler or design professional in the United States.

Continuing to set new standards of professionalism, 87 remodeling companies from across the United States were named winners at the seventeenth annual Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence. The winning projects were selected from over 475 entries. The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.

Pictures of the 2010 award-winning projects can be seen on the internet at beginning in mid June . For more information about the Chrysalis Awards, contact Ken Kanline at 888-263-5687 or at [email protected].
