Little Daphne loves butter. She can tell you what butter she loves and what butter is not so good. Her uncle Charlie (not really her uncle, but in Greek tradition an older family friend is considered an uncle) grew up in Wisconsin. As a kid he used to milk cows, churn butter and of course, make cheese. Always a devoted Cheesehead, Uncle Charlie and little Daphne shared a common love for dairy. Together they teamed up to build a brand committed to creating and delivering the finest dairy products you can find at a creamery. But they didn't stop there.
Uncle Charlie and little Daphne wanted to do more than just help people eat tastier butter and cheese. They wanted to give back to their community and decided to make their creamery mission based.

Best Whole House Remodel
Architectural Designer/Contractor: CHC Creative Remodeling
The goal: To upgrade the quality and aesthetic appeal of the main floor of the home, with particular focus on the fireplace, flooring and trim.
The challenge: Maintaining the traditional style of the home while updating existing spaces.
The result: The foyer, which features a custom front entry door with leaded glass inserts designed by the homeowner, new floors and a redesigned grand staircase, establishes the traditional design of the home upon entry. From there, the dining room and great room can be seen through graceful arched passageways. Retaining the existing floor-to-ceiling red brick fireplace and tongue-and-groove ceiling, the great room features a hand-made alder fireplace surround and cove molding with corner blocks that wrap the ceiling.
The judges liked: How the relocation of the powder room and addition of an entrance from the patio met the homeowners’ requirements.
