Tour of Remodeled Homes Before and After
Zenith winds 'People's Choice' Award second year in a row!
I'm excited to share that our team has won the 'People's Choice' Award and 'Most Dramatic Change' Award during the recent HBA Tour of Remodeled Homes for the second year in a row! We also took home the 'Best Use of Space' Award. Our project was a Mid-Century Modern transformation on SW 23rd in Des Moines. See project photos:  Mid Century Modern Transformation Photos

These awards mean a lot to me and I'm thankful for the support from friends, customers and colleagues for me and Zenith Design + Build. Thank you to the Home Builder's Association and to sponsor, Pella for supporting the event. 

If you or your friends would like to see the transformation, we'll have an open house on Sat. Oct. 19-- Mid Mod Madness Home Tour
Or give us a call if you'd like a tour or would like to discuss your remodeling project.

Thanks and Happy October!

The Project: 3135 SW 23rd St., Des Moines  Mid-Century Modern Transformation

In the 'Before' photo you'll see the center wall that housed the staircase. We removed that to open up
the room and improve function. The staircase was moved to the front of the house near the windows.




Here you'll see the how we replaced the windows at the back of the house with a three panel sliding
door. The new door, new deck and pergola now encourages the blend of outdoor and living space. 



3125 SW 23rd St-4

We exposed the original interior / exterior brick wall in the hall bathroom, which provided contrast
against the shower tile, as shown in the mirror above the sink. The vanity is actually a mid mod TV stand!



3125 SW 23rd St-3

We turned a large hall closet into this Master Micro-Bath. You'll see several, unique space saving 
features, including a double medicine cabinet, in-wall European toilet and a unique tile shower.
