Today, more homeowners than ever are choosing to go the remodel route rather than starting from scratch when it comes to their dream home. The Remodeling Excellence Awards (REX), now in their 27th year, are presented annually in June to celebrate the design, craftsmanship and creativity of the quality work done by the members of the Master Builders Association Remodelers Council of King and Snohomish counties. From whole house to one-room renovations, living spaces were transformed in true Pacific Northwest style to enhance comfort, functionality and curb appeal. On the following pages you will see photos and descriptions of the winners of the 2013 REX Awards — inspired designs that just might motivate you to begin a remodel of your own.
