Normandy designer John Long received an honorable mention for the Remodeling Excellence Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry Greater Chicagoland for a kitchen renovation he completed in Chicago.
The recognition was in the Residential Kitchen $30,000 to $60,000 category.
Long allowed the kitchen to be completely transformed in a contemporary way the clients’ didn’t believe seemed possible at first, based on the original structural layout and perceived limitations of the home. In addition to the association’s recognition, Long also received a first place award in the same competition for an exterior renovation he completed in Glen Ellyn.
