Remodeling Jobs That Might Inspire You

March 25, 2012

Everyone needs a little eye candy, and if your home doesn’t offer it, you can take a moment to step into someone else’s.

Houzz, an online platform for residential remodeling and design, has released its “Best of Remodeling 2012” list with a bevvy of pictures to peruse.

Greenside Design Build LLC won a remodeling award for this Chicago home office.

Customer Satisfaction award winners are based on homeowner members who rated their experience working with remodeling professionals in 12 categories including architects, contractors and interior designers.
