Sponsor Spotlight: Irons Brothers Receives Award of Excellence for Outdoor Living Renovation
From kitchens and bathrooms to decks and entire homes, the Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW) celebrated the best in remodeling at the 2022 Excellence in Remodeling Awards on June 6.
The culmination of the association’s summer board meeting, the awards recognized the top renovators in 25 different categories. The winners faced fierce competition, with 57 entries vying for the top 25 prizes. Members of six local home building associations competed for top honors.
To identify the winners of the 2022 Renovation Excellence Awards, industry experts reviewed and scored each project based on several criteria. Criteria included: aesthetics, special or unique design solutions, quality craftsmanship, appropriate construction materials, budget considerations, and challenges faced by the project design requirements.
Joseph and Melissa Irons of Irons Brothers Construction were present at the event and were honored to win an award for their company’s project, “Biophilic Influenced Backyard”. With this outdoor living addition – complete with gas fireplace, TV and screen – this Lake Forest Park family can now enjoy their backyard oasis all year round.
The addition built at the back of their home is adjacent to their kitchen and family room and includes a new patio door. With an emphasis on biophilic design, material selections and architectural details were selected to complement the existing roofline and not block upstairs bedroom windows.
The ceiling was crafted with 6-inch wide tongue-and-groove clear cedar and the structure is surrounded by exposed framing and posts painted the color of the house trim. Skylights provide natural lighting through the seasons while the chandelier completes the ambiance.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of Washington State’s top home improvement and design-build companies by BIAW,” said Melissa Irons, the company’s director of marketing and operations, during of his acceptance speech for the prize. “Every project is a success when we work as a team. At Irons Brothers Construction, we are blessed with amazing clients and a passionate team that takes great care of them and their homes.
The architecture for this addition was done by Mike Garrett of Gabbert Architects at Shoreline.
