2000 First Place National Award in the Renovation Category from the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD) and Homestyle’s Publishing and Marketing

This Award is bestowed every year by AIBD recognizing the best in the design industry. Laine M. Jones Design won for the renovation of a dark reproduction Colonial Gambrel in West Newbury, MA. The goal was to open the house interior to the sun, enhance the exterior, add a master suite along with two fireplaces. This was achieved by a 10 x 16 foot cross gambrel addition and adding exciting exterior details such as soffit brackets, flared shingles, and fieldstone veneer.

This award is the result of a blind competition judged by a prestigious panel of industry experts from entries across the country and abroad. Winners were announced in July 2000 at the association’s gala ceremony in San Diego, CA
