Project Highlights: 2019 CotY Winners


Congratulations to the Odell team for receiving 4 NARI Cleveland Contractor of the Year Awards (CotYs) on March 15th, 2019 at the annual Evening of Excellence event. We want to extend a huge “thank you!” to everyone who made this possible: our amazing clients, vendors, trade partners, employees, NARI, and of course, our families for their unwavering support! Also, congratulations to the other winners!


Without further ado, here are the highlights of the award-winning projects…

1st place Residential Bath $15-30K

Though square footage was limited we were able to transform this claustrophobic bathroom in to the bright, open space these clients had been longing for after 30+ years in the home.  By removing the walls of the shower and replacing them with glass walls it immediately felt more spacious without modifying size. 

White subway tile paired with a custom white wainscot adorning the walls further enhanced the feeling of a larger space, and a recessed medicine cabinet and glass shelf above the pedestal sink provided additional storage without the need for a vanity that would potentially swallow up the space


1st Place Residential Bath $30-45K

A lot of luxury was packed in the limited footprint of the original bathroom of this 1922 Colonial.  By eliminating an unused chimney running through the bathroom, we were able to make the space feel more open and allow for minor modifications in layout that had a significant impact overall. 

With a cast iron tub and tile extending from the shower to a beautiful tile wainscot adorning the perimeter, custom built vanity, heated tile floor, and heated towel bar this bathroom included all the upgrades the clients longed for while maintaining the original beauty of the time period of the home.


1st Place Residential Kitchen $45-60K

With a few modifications, we made a significant impact on the functionality and layout of this 1950’s kitchen.  By eliminating a large window and re-framing to a more modest size we were able to preserve the natural light while expanding counter and cabinet space to the full perimeter of the wall. 

Removing the load bearing wall separating the kitchen and dining areas not only joined the two spaces, but also allowed for new placement of appliances to create larger, unobstructed pathways.  Color scheme and material selections were thoughtfully made for a cohesive design with other updated spaces of the home. 


2nd Place Residential Interior $100-175K

With their children reaching an age where their bedrooms could be moved upstairs, it was time to create a long-awaited master suite oasis for these clients.  We transformed a wing of the home from 3 small bedrooms and a cramped bathroom to a larger master bedroom, a custom walk-in closet allowing for consolidation of clothing and accessory storage, a luxurious master bath complete with a large custom tile shower and heated floor, and a flex/workout room.  By removing load bearing walls and framing new walls and pocket beams we designed a layout that met our clients immediate and future needs!
