Swept Away!


Witt Construction swept the Capital Region Builders and Remodelers Association building awards on May 1 held in Troy, taking home more prizes than any other company. In fact, Witt took the top honor in every category we entered. Check it out!

Coolest New Home. Granger Cottage on Granger Avenue is right next to the East Side Rec in Saratoga Springs, considered the community’s finest playground/park. The custom urban cottage-style home is 3,055 square feet and features a gourmet kitchen, luxury bath, nooks and crannies, natural light and passive solar design. Sunken entry, stone fireplace with signature Witt built-ins and south-facing French doors. Distinctive cupola. Meticulous detail on the natural granite, cedar shakes, clap board and board and batten exterior. It’s cool being acknowledged for being cool.

Best New Home Kitchen. This kitchen is at Old Stone Ridge in Greenfield Center. It’s a great environment for cooking, of course, but it’s also a superbly comfortable leisure area for either gathering or solitude. Reclaimed beams and signature Witt built-ins throughout. Sleek, yet inviting, utilitarian, yet elegant. You get the caviar and I’ll get the champagne. We can sit in here.

New Home Best Basement. There are times when going underground is a good thing. The lowest level in this is home in Old Stone Ridge is a spacious retreat. Want to play chess? Shoot pool? Watch a movie on a wide screen? Get a drink at the bar? Work out? All of the above? You’ve come to the right place.  

New Home Best Outdoor Living and Landscape. Old Stone Ridge is truly beautiful year-round and Witt Construction always takes full advantage of a natural setting. This house has a grill and fridge built right into the perimeter of an outdoor patio. Yes, you can do that. The spectacular view overlooks Saratoga Springs, with Vermont in the distance. Cozy front porch for sunset and a gourmet kitchen complete with breakfast nook opening onto a rear screened porch for sunrise views. The exterior is a combination of maintenance-free vinyl siding, cedar shakes and stone accents on the porches. Closed-cell insulation, Energy Star HVAC and reclaimed wood throughout the house to keep it all green. Resort living without leaving home – and really, why would you leave when you already live in Paradise?

Best Website. www.wittconstruction.com is beautiful for a good reason – the houses themselves are beautiful and our world class photographer has been able to capture images that tell the story – and, we have a lot to work with. And, the site is getting better and better all the time as we improve navigation, streamline the site and keep it refreshed and up-to-date, just like our ideas and design.
