In a recent competition sponsored by the Maryland Improvement Contractors Association and Chesapeake Home + Living Magazine, American Contracting won the 2014 Remodeler of the Year award for Commercial Renovation.
The Episcopal Housing Corporation, a not for profit company specializing in the development of low and moderate income housing opportunities, needed to expand its office space in Baltimore City. The Episcopal Diocese offered to give EHC a long term lease on the St. Mary’s Church Funeral Chapel located near 39th Street and Roland Avenue. Constructed many years ago it had been most recently used as a place for worship by a community church. The lease had expired and the Diocese was eager to have EHC move into the space.

Our customer and his family live in a community north of Baltimore. Their kitchen was outdated and too small to accommodate each family member and their specific needs. A new larger space was required to allow for dining in a more casual atmosphere while also providing entertainment space. There was room to the rear of the house to provide for a kitchen addition that incorporated the existing porch while expanding outdoor space by adding a larger rear deck and accessible entry ramp.
