Bronze Winner

While walking through a local building materials company, Bill Raven of Raven Homes in La Crosse, Wis., stumbled across a dust-covered door. Distressed and fitted with a small lockable look-through, the door was once on display in the showroom with a price tag of $3,000. Ready to get rid of it, the shop sold it to Raven for $100. Amazed by the deal he got, Raven showed it to clients who were in the process of finishing their basement. The old, unwanted door became the inspiration piece for the theater portion of the project.
