OLD LYME, Conn., Dec. 8, 2012 — Sapia Builders was recently awarded the 2012 HOBI Award for Best Residential Remodel in the state of Connecticut in the $100k – $250k category for their 1954 Cape Renovation at 62 Neck Road in Old Lyme, CT.
The HOBI Awards is the state’s most prestigious housing industry program, recognizing excellence in new construction, land development, remodeling, sales and marketing, and home financing.
Sapia Builders’ Cape Renovation project in Old Lyme demonstrates key elements in design, detail, construction quality, and material choices, which make it a unique and striking residence that fits perfectly into the surrounding area and architectural style of the Connecticut Shoreline. The project was self designed by company owner, Nick Sapia and built within a timeframe of approximately 7 months.
Project highlights include the expansion of a 1954 cape style home from 1,400 s.f. to approximately 3,000 s.f., with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, formal living room, family room, dining room, office, a cathedral eat-in country kitchen, master bedroom roof deck, and a 2 car attached barn style garage with future expansion space above.
Key products used on the project include James Hardie siding, Azek cellular PVC trim, Andersen windows, Lemieux doors, Cambria and butcherblock countertops, Huber Zip System wall and roof sheathing, A&B moldings, and more.
“Winning a HOBI Award means everything to us. It’s a sign that we’re still moving forward in a tough time for housing and construction. It’s one thing to build a house, but it’s another to build an award winning one and I’ll forever be grateful I can now say that. My sincere appreciation goes out to the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Connecticut for bestowing us with this honor” says owner Nick Sapia.
