Damskov Construction Takes Home First Place Award for Remodeling Excellence by the Remodelers Council of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties

BELLEVUE, Wash.—June 12, 2021— Each year, The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties (MBAKS) celebrates winners of the Annual Remodeling/Trades Remodeling Excellence (REX/T-REX) Awards honoring the very best of our remodelers and tradespeople. This year’s 34th annual event was presented by ERNWest on Saturday, June 12, 2021.

Festivities traditionally include a cocktail hour, dinner, and awards ceremony. This year, instead of the traditional ceremony, the REX/T-REX Awards were hosted on a livestream presentation.

Each year, members enter their most impressive projects for the chance to win several categories showcasing every aspect of their art and craft. REX/T-REX entries are judged on the following categories: aesthetics, special or unique design solutions, quality workmanship, use of appropriate building material, budgetary consideration, challenges and obstacles.

An independent panel of professionals was selected from various fields of expertise. These judges reviewed hundreds of entries and chose winners from eleven separate categories including Bath Excellence, Kitchen Excellence, Exterior Remodeling, etc. Damksov Construction was among those category winners for “Residential Remodel Excellence—Addition”.

“Beyond updating the finishes, the homeowners sought a more open, spacious, and airy floor plan, said Damskov’s president Cameron Damksov. “They wanted their home to have a better flow and feel different than the original space. Partnering with Board & Vellum on the design, we started by removing the curved feature wall that separated the foyer from the living room. A portion of the wall lining the stairs on the first floor was removed to open up the living room. We also took out soffits in the dining room and relocated the fireplace from the center of the home to the west living room wall. The results were stunning.”

“We are thrilled to be included among the many builders and designers who were recognized for their quality workmanship and ingenuity,” added Cameron. “We take great pride in our work and certainly appreciate the recognition.”
