November 3, 2016 – The Maryland Building Industry Association (MBIA) announced Mueller Homes as the winner of the 2016 Remodeling Award of Excellence for Historic Renovation $250,000 – $400,000. The Custom Building Awards program honors excellence in construction and celebrates the accomplishments of its members. The awards were held at The Great Room at Historic Savage Mill in Savage, Maryland.
This project featured: rebuilding, restoration and renovation from the ground up. The original structure was built in the early to mid 1800s. It had been poorly maintained over the last 100 years. The foundation required extensive repairs and underpinnings. Most of the original frame, including hand hewn logs both for floor beams and exterior walls, were retained but required extensive reinforcing. The roof was replaced with cedar sawn shakes over spaced sheathing. The entire interior was gutted and other structural reinforcements were added. Completely new HVAC, plumbing and electrical construction were installed. The project was finished with appropriate finish materials and some of the original logs and beams were left exposed. The exterior finishes include half round copper gutters, historically correct fully operational shutters, and new wood windows.
“These types of projects showcase the real talent of the architect and builder to strike a delicate balance between preserving the old structure and incorporating the new design for functionality. This particular project is now a landmark in historic Sykesville and a wonderful showcase of the unique work Mueller can do,” said Rich Lang, president of the MBIA Remodelers Council.
