It was a very close race, but we’re extremely excited, honored, and oh so appreciative to be announced as the winners of the JDR Annual Industry Blogger Awards in the Remodeling category! That deserves a few more exclamation points… !!!!!!!! Thank you all so much for your votes, Tweets, and Facebook posts. We seriously couldn’t have done it without you.
As we mentioned last week, the winner gets a $500 cash prize. In the sprit of paying it forward, a portion of the winnings will be going to Rebuilding Together Richmond – an affiliate of the national Rebuilding Together organization (you may have seen their Raise a Roof campaign on HGTV). Rebuilding Together is the nation’s leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities. It’s a volunteer-based program that repairs and rehabilitates non-profit community buildings and homes throughout the community. Read more about Rebuilding Together here.

A special thank you to Jackson Design & Remodeling for putting together such a great contest. They have been great to work with throughout this process (thanks Jenny!). Be sure to click over and check out the winners in the other categories: 2Modern (architecture), Freshome (interior design), Building Blox (construction business), and BuildDirect Green Blog (green). We’re so excited to be in such great company!
Again, thank you all so much for your support! We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again… over the past 19 months, this blog has become like a part of the family. We’ve enjoyed every minute of it and are looking forward for things to come.
