For the second year in a row, Terry Schreep, president of Coyote Construction & Remodeling, Inc. accepted "DelChester Contractor of the Year 2008" Awards from the DelChester Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) at their annual awards banquet held Friday, February 1, 2008.

Coyote won a first place award in the remodeling category "Entire House Under $250,000," and an honorable mention award for "Residential Interior Over $100,000." Winners for the DelCY awards were selected in recognition of their remodeling work performed during 2007. Judged by experts from within DelChester NARI's own membership, an award-winning entry had to demonstrate superior craftsmanship, the ability to meet client needs, and overcoming difficult obstacles.

"It's a privilege to win an award two years in a row. These projects demonstrate our creative space design, use of unique materials, and exemplary craftsmanship." stated Mr. Schreep.

DelCY 2008 Winner: Entire House Under $250,000
Coyote provided design/build services for completely renovating an 1100 square foot, two-story loft apartment located in a restored mill along the banks of the Brandywine River in Wilmington, DE. The homeowner wanted a space that allowed for entertaining friends, as well as displaying his unique collection of art. Our challenges for this project were to get the most use of space from the available square footage, to use materials that reflected the homeowner's taste in modern design, and to preserve the historic feel of the apartment. We provided an open-kitchen design with eat-in bar connecting to the living area; master bedroom suite sanctuary; master bath with whirlpool tub; remodel of existing powder room; space-saving storage; use of unique lighting, upscale materials and unusual wall coverings.

This blended family wished for: home theatre area with surround sound; full wet bar; entrance to/from pool, allowing for backpack and towel storage; exercise room overlooking pool; sauna; full, eat-in kitchen; full bath with shower; finished closet pantry; and unfinished storage space.

This includes: curved walls, honeycomb-style "tray" ceilings, tile flooring, African Rosewood bar top, colonial columns and decorative molding, and accent lighting.

    DelCY 2007 Winner: Residential Interior $100,000 and Under
    A 1720 square foot unfinished basement was converted into a multi-use living and entertainment area. As designer, the greatest challenge was integrating architectural details that matched the sophistication and stylishness of the rest of the home. Client wish list included: a home theatre with projection television; a wet bar/kitchenette with seating for six; a full bath with a shower and linen closet; an exercise room; and additional space for games. Our design accomplished this and more: elliptical arches, multiple "tray" ceilings, custom cabinetry, African Rosewood "Bubinga" bar tops, colonial columns and decorative molding, and accent lighting highlighting the details.
    DelCY 2007 Winner: Commercial Interior
    Friends Home for the elderly, in Kennett Square, facing competition from newer retirement communities, elected to eliminate its out-dated communal bathrooms, and provide private baths for each resident's room.

    As a design/build firm, we reworked the preliminary plans which didn't account for hidden structural and mechanical issues. We redesigned rooms to maximize space, storage, and accessibility for people with limited mobility.

    We also remodeled the Beauty Parlor; created three new half baths; redesigned the nurse's station, office, and reception; and created a pantry. Work was performed while the facility was fully operational.

    DelCY 2007 Winner: Residential Addition $100,000 to $250,000
    Working from owner-supplied plans, we were challenged with making this 500 square foot addition match the existing home - both inside and out. The client wished for a seamless flow from the existing dining room to the new vaulted-ceiling entertainment room. They also wanted to ensure that the designer's unique, new "funky roofline" appeared as though it had always been there.

    To provide this flawless look, we matched interior flooring, paint, trim and doors. Externally, we installed high-performance windows to match existing; refaced existing fireplace chimney with stone veneer to correspond with new fireplace; replaced shingles; and repainted the entire home.
