Glen Ellen home wins design award


Qualified Remodeler Magazine

and Kitchen and Bath Design News recently awarded LEFF Construction Design-Build the Chrysalis Award for outstanding design in the “Whole-Home Remodeling” category for the extensive interior and exterior renovation of a home in Glen Ellen.

Completing the project in two phases, the design-build team created the dramatic transformation of a stone cottage to a showstopping, casual-luxury retreat.

The home is a family retreat in the Wine Country hills of Glen Ellen. So much maintenance had been deferred that the clients’ first inclination was to demolish, then rebuild, the structure. Instead, an extensive interior and exterior whole-home remodel was designed and built.

Safety features were a top priority in the renovation, with fireresistant materials and a metal roof, smart-home security, and intuitive controls for lighting. Slate tile and other highly durable tile materials and easy-clean counter surfaces were installed throughout the house.

Founded in 1978 in Sebastopol, LEFF designs and builds residential remodeling and new home construction projects in Sonoma County. For more information and photos of the project, visit www.
