Northlight Custom Builders Named NARI Regional CotY™ Winner

Contractor of the Year

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named Northlight Custom Builders in Mukilteo, WA, 2023 Region 6 Northwest Regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) winner in the Residential Detached Structure category in its’ annual awards competition.

Northlight Custom Builders submitted the full details of a design to build outdoor living space conversion and build project in Lake Forest Park, WA that was completed in 2021. We collaborated with H2D Architecture + Design and Cleary O’Farrell Photography. Northlight Custom Builders transformed a dated 1960s pool house into a stunning new outdoor living space; complete with a fully equipped open-air kitchen, dining and lounging space, large firepit and hot tub. The project also features an attached modern workshop space for the homeowners.

“Our team worked hard on the project itself as it was an old, unused, indoor pool area that needed to be converted into something more usable for the homeowners. The completed project was an amazing transformation of a once unusable space. ”

Tony Collins, Owner
