Our June issue celebrates the best of the homebuilding and remodeling industry with our 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards. Whether you’re renovating a kitchen or bathroom, searching for home solutions or shopping for furnishings and accessories — our readers have selected their recommended places, professionals and services for all your home needs in 42 categories. See it all here. 

This issue is packed with engaging stories, some of which highlight the work of these award-winning companies. Find ideas to boost your curb appeal, including shutters from Island Shutters, a garage door from Raynor Hawaii Overhead Doors or home improvement pieces from City Mill — all winners in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards — here.  

We also shine a light on everything you need to know about solar, featuring advice from RevoluSun, the Readers’ Choice Award winner among solar companieshere. 

Read our cover story on a new multigenerational home that’s focused on family and energy efficiency here. Sustainability was key in the design and construction of the abode, which is home to three generations. I personally love the homeowners’ warm, stylish kitchen that’s stacked with storage and high-quality materials and their bright outdoor space, complete with a pool, raised deck and yard for the kids to run and play in. 

Another great feature? An outdoor space that’s completely decked out and perfect for the summer days and nights ahead. See here for this Aina Haina home’s revitalized backyard. 

There’s more in store for you in this issue of the magazine — and we hope it brings you some fresh ideas and inspiration to get you started on your next home project.
