The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) holds an annual Design Competition for their Northern California Chapter. RemodelWest entered a project into two categories for the 2011 Competition. Lead Designer, Sarah Spiroff and Co-Designer Kirk Goodere worked together on this amazing transformation. The design of this bathroom was entered into both the Before/After Category and the Small Bathroom Category and won First Place in Before/After and Second Place in Small Bathroom! Having never entered her work into a design contest before, Sarah was ecstatic and flattered at the response from her peers. She looks forward to entering more of her work into design competitions. Sarah is both a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD), Certified Bath Designer (CBD) and a Certified Green Building Professional (CGBP). She has been a loyal RemodelWest employee for 7 years. Co-Designer, Kirk Goodere is a Certified Green Building Professional (CGBP) and a GreenPoint Rater and has been with the company for 4 years.
During early stages of design with these homeowners, the husband expressed his desire for the transformation to a black “man cave” bathroom. As progress was made on the design of the bathroom and materials were selected, the wife

and Sarah discussed their interpretations of a black, man cave and put their own twist on it. In the ends, both homeowners were very satisfied with their project. They were excited to hear that we were entering their project into the 2011 NKBA Design Competition.
The transformation of bathtub to shower can really make a difference in a cramped bathroom. Sarah also designed the shower with only half width glass door; encouraging the openness of the space. The curb less shower and designer
drain add to the sleek, clean design. With dark cabinetry, dark tile and a gray countertop and shower wall, Sarah achieved the husband’s “man cave” vision. The decorative tile and accent towels pull out the teal from the wall tile taking away enough of the dark bathroom to keep both husband and wife satisfied.

Founder and Owner of Remodel West, a residential design and construction firm, originally established as Cupertino Kitchen Design in 1992. I have created a very progressive company with a high level of quality standards. Over the years, the company has built revenues to 8.5 Million and scaled operations as we rolled with the times. By re-branding the business in 2007 to Remodel West, we aimed to better align our name with the scope of work performed.
I am a Certified Graduate Remodeler through NAHB and Certified Green Building Professional through Build It Green and most recently Certified Renovator through the EPA which is now a federal requirement.
My primary goals are to design and build more eco-friendly projects, to do projects for those clients seeking high quality. My professional background stems from twenty-six years of hands on experience beginning in 1985 in cabinetry design and sales, and progressed to my involvement with a startup company from 1987-1991. In 1992, at age 26, I started Cupertino Kitchen Design/RemodelWest. My strengths are creating a vision for our company, planning, and empowering our employees to accomplish our goals. Sue and I have been married 26 years with three wonderful children, Jessica, Michael and Adam and of course our dog Ellbee. We live in Los Gatos and enjoy visiting our home in Lake Almanor, fishing, brewing beer, reading and relaxing.
What a nice area! I love the gulf coast also! I have a soft spot for Siesta Key off the coast of Sarasota. The white sand beaches are just faolubus! All the best! Ciao, Geri
