…No, not the Academy. YOU! We are extremely honored, flattered, and elated to be named as the winners of theΒ Annual JDR Blogger Awards in the Remodeling category!! We couldn’t have done it without you guys, our amazing readers, who voted for us!

This is our very first blogging contest win, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’d also like to thank Jackson Design & Remodeling for putting together such a fun contest. In the spirit of paying it forward, we are donating a portion of the $500 prize to Rebuilding Together Richmond. Rebuilding Together is the nation’s leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities.

Rebuilding Together believes in a safe and healthy home for every person. With a network of over 200 affiliates in cities around the country, they provide free rehabilitation and critical repairs to the homes of people in need. Read more about Rebuilding Together here. Find a Rebuilding Together affiliate in your area here.

Again, thank you all so very much for your support! Over the past 7 months, this blog has become very near and dear to our hearts — almost like a second child (Bentley being the first child of course!) and we’ve enjoyed every minute of sharing our home renovation projects with you. Basically, you guys just plain rock!
