Remodeling’s Big 50 Award. Every year since 1986, Remodeling has searched for 50 remodelers at the top of their field. They are usually skilled craftspeople who are meticulous is their execution. Most important they’re open to learning something new, whether it’s a cutting edge building technique or digitally savvy marketing plan. Hanley Woods Remodeling Magazine inducted Morey Construction into the exclusive membership of Big50 award winners at the Remodeling Leadership Conference on May 19, 2005 for fine design.
Builder Magazine 2008 Watermark Award for Merit, best kitchen in a single-family detached remodel home. Opening up the floor plan was a remodeling priority for an empty nester couple, but there was one small problem: the kitchen wall slated for removal was a conduit for a plumbing line coming down from the second floor. Morey Construction turned the situation into a design plus by tucking the mechanicals neatly inside two decorative columns and a ceiling soffit. In this same vein, a conspicuous drop beam extending from kitchen to family room was integrated into a coffered ceiling that ties the two realms together. It all looks intentional, uncluttered, and seamless.
The NAHB Homes for Life Award of excellence, recognizing excellent remodeling work for aging in place and universal design, was given to Ben Morey, CGR, CAPS, CGP of Morey Construction in Signal Hill, CA. It was under the “Major Space” remodel category for remodeling a master bedroom and bath for a couple. Accessibility for the wheelchair-using husband was enhanced by expanding the space, installing low cabinets, and designing a deep walk-in closet. Additionally, the bathroom was improved with roll under sink, roll-in shower with handheld shower heads, and angled mirror. Luxury details, such as a towel warmer next to the shower and sophisticated design details provided elegance to the new remodeled rooms.
