Thomas Ashley Jr., CAPS, CGP, CGR, owner of Expand Inc. in Denham Springs, La., was awarded in the Single Space remodel category. Ashley's space created a multi-functional sensory room for a child with autism. The sensory room was created to be safe and interactive for both the boy and his brother. Ashley received input for the design from four different CAPS designers, Expand Inc.'s production team, and from the child's occupational therapist. The room also solves some much-needed storage issues and can be used as a pool house if needed.
