Press Release 



MINNETONKA, MINNESOTA – May 11, 2011 – Orfield Design & Construction, Inc. is the Midwests Regional winner of (2) 2011 Chrysalis Awards in the Categories: Bath Remodel $40,000-$60,000 and Residential Historic Renovation.  

81 remodeling companies from across the United States were named winners at the 18th Annual Chrysalis Awards for Remodeling Excellence in Tallahassee, Florida. The winning projects were selected from over 400 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. The Chrysalis Awards program, begun in 1994, recognizes the nation’s best work in 16 general categories of residential and commercial remodeling. “Winning awards in multiple categories is difficult to do. Not only does this speak to their versatility, but to their commitment to quality on every project...This Company has won 5 Chrysalis Awards in the past 5 years, demonstrating their ongoing commitment to professionalism and excellence.” says Ken Kanline, Director of the Awards.

Orfield Design & Construction’s winning entries involved restoring the rooms in an 1899-built balloon-framed Victorian home while incorporating modern amenities. We dutifully worked with existing site conditions and created efficiency in the proposed design. We salvaged and preserved building materials, architectural details, ornaments, fixtures and similar items for use in restoration elsewhere, where possible. The layout of several rooms on the 2nd floor was changed to create a master suite: walk-in closet, master bedroom, master bathroom and private office.  The 3rd level of the home was finished to be a large multi-purpose recreational room, a separate bedroom with closet (or office) and contain a new ¾ bathroom to serve this floor.  We kept in mind this floor layout could then be re-sold as part of another future master or private guest suite.
