The Re­mod­el­ers Coun­cil of the Mary­land Build­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced the win­ners of its an­nual Re­mod­el­ing and Cus­tom Build­ing Award of Ex­cel­lence com­pe­ti­tion.

SAV­AGE — The Re­mod­el­ers Coun­cil of the Mary­land Build­ing In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced the win­ners of its an­nual Re­mod­el­ing and Cus­tom Build­ing Award of Ex­cel­lence com­pe­ti­tion on Nov. 1 at the His­toric Sav­age Mill in Sav­age, Md.

The MBIA Re­mod­el­ing and Cus­tom Build­ing Awards of Ex­cel­lence Pro­gram rec­og­nizes re­mod­el­ing de­signs, new cus­tom homes and in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als who pro­vide cus­tomers with su­pe­rior

and creative projects that are sen­si­tive to the ex­ist­ing struc­ture and make ap­pro­pri­ate use of the ex­ist­ing build­ing el­e­ments, while be­ing com­pat­i­ble with the neigh­bor­hood.

“Th­ese award-win­ning projects are a great ex­am­ple of the ex­tra­or­di­nary crafts­man­ship of our coun­cil mem­bers,” said Rich Lang, pres­i­dent of the MBIA Re­mod­el­ers and Cus­tom Builders Coun­cil. They de­liver a high qual­ity prod­uct and an in­creased level of cus­tomer ser­vice, he added.

An eval­u­a­tion team that con­sisted of build­ing in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als from around the Bal­ti­more Met­ro­pol­i­tan area rated all en­tries. The cri­te­ria used to judge the en­tries in­cluded: qual­ity of con­struc­tion, de­gree of dif­fi­culty, value and cost ef­fec­tive­ness and unique and creative de­sign ap­proach. The awards are an an­nual op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers to gain pro­fes­sional recog­ni­tion and cred­i­bil­ity. The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all MBIA Re­mod­el­ers and Cus­tom Builder Coun­cil mem­bers who have com­pleted projects meet­ing cat­e­gory re­quire­ments.

MBIA Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Lori Graf said mem­bers of the coun­cil are com­mit­ted to their craft. “Th­ese award­win­ning projects are a great ex­am­ple of their work and pro­fes­sion­al­ism,” Graf said.

Among the 2018 win­ners was Mueller Homes LLC for a whole house ren­o­va­tion in St. Michaels.

Mueller Homes won an Award of Ex­cel­lence for whole house ren­o­va­tion $2$2.5 mil­lion for St. Michaels Re­treat.

The home is lo­cated on the banks of the Har­ris Creek. Mueller Homes worked with East Bay De­sign, a lo­cal ar­chi­tect, to bring the home­owner’s dreams to life, ac­cord­ing to the firm’s web­site. The home was orig­i­nally an 1800s farm house. The project re­tained por­tions of the ex­ist­ing struc­ture while in­cor­po­rat­ing many new de­sign el­e­ments to com­ple­ment the Fed­eral style ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign.

“A sig­nif­i­cant ef­fort was made to in­cor­po­rate many of the home’s de­sign el­e­ments from the orig­i­nal 1800s home Fed­eral style pe­riod,” Paul Mueller Jr., pres­i­dent of Mueller Homes, said. “The orig­i­nal fire­places were re­stored, com­ple­mented by many cus­tom wood­work­ing and ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments. Re­claimed brick, from the orig­i­nal farm­house, was also in­cor­po­rated into the de­sign. The de­sign, liv­ing space and water­front views make this home a beau­ti­ful re­treat.”

The project was com­pleted in fall 2017.

Lux­u­ri­ous out­door liv­ing with screened-in porches, a heated pool with spa and wa­ter­fall pro­vide the per­fect set­ting for re­lax­ation and en­ter­tain­ment, while com­ple­mented by the views of the Har­ris Creek, off the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay.

An­der­sen win­dows and de­tailed cof­fer ceil­ing add to the warmth of this liv­ing space, over­look­ing views of Har­ris Creek.

The li­brary de­sign was based off the orig­i­nal 1800s home us­ing de­sign el­e­ments of the Fed­eral style pe­riod to en­hance the warmth and his­tor­i­cal feel of the space. The orig­i­nal fire­place was re­stored and com­ple­mented by cus­tom built-ins and ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments. Re­claimed brick from the orig­i­nal farm­house was also in­cor­po­rated into the de­sign.
