Third Place: Tyler Ravenell, Ravenell Home Services, Cornelius

Project: Cover a flawed hallway ceiling.

Repurposed Materials: Wood mosaic tiles from Habitat Restore. There wasn’t quite enough to cover the entire area, so I cut blocks and stained them to make up the difference.


Thank you to all participants and to Claudia Josephine Design and Sustain Charlotte for providing the prizes.
