Titus Built, LLC of Redding was awarded with “Best Residential Remodel $750,000-$1 million” in the 2012 Home Builders & Remodelers Association (HBRA) of Connecticut HOBI Awards. The HBRA of Connecticut HOBI awards are the most prestigious awards presented in Connecticut for excellence in design, constructions, sales, marketing and financing.

“We are honored to be recognized by the HBRA for the coastal haven we designed and built for our clients,” said Jeffrey A. Titus, general manager of Titus Built, LLC. “Transforming a humble 1950s beach cottage into a stunning three level home presented some unique challenges and gave us the opportunity to practice our best work. It is rewarding to be recognized by our peers.”
About the project
“A couple about to celebrate the union of their two families wanted to transform their simple 1950s’ beach cottage into an idyllic second home they could comfortably share for a lifetime. Because they were planning a wedding and a remodel at the same time, it was critical that the project run smoothly. The deadline for the home to be finished and livable was set for one day before their wedding, which was successfully achieved to the delight of the couple.
The original home was of humble design and size but located directly on the water in a quaint beach community. The homeowners planned to live in the home with their four children and large groups of visiting friends and family during the summer and other vacation times. They wanted their new environment to be a comfortable and luxurious retreat for themselves and their children, with surroundings conducive to frequent entertaining and overnight guests.
Because the home is in an area that experiences seasonal hurricanes, practical considerations in the planning were an important part of the process. As frequent travelers and connoisseurs of art, the couple wanted to express their eclectic tastes and interests throughout the home, with a focus on compelling architectural elements, unusual materials and interesting found objects. They wanted their home to evoke a classic Nantucket style suitable to its environment, with its own memorable character and detail.
The home abounds with refined design details, from the decision to leave a rough finish on the wood floors for a strong sense of character to the solid iron spindles on the stairway’s oak railings. Every piece of cabinetry and wainscoting was custom built, lending the home a solid and memorable essence of enduring beauty.”
