Northlight Custom Builders was named a National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) 2023 Region 6 Northwest Regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) winner in the Residential Detached Structure category.
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. Northlight Custom Builders submitted the full details of a design to build outdoor living space conversion and build project in Lake Forest Park that was completed in 2021. They collaborated with H2D Architecture + Design and Cleary O’Farrell Photography.
“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,” said owner Tony Collins. “The completed project was an amazing transformation of a once unusable space. Seeing it finished, I knew we just had to submit that project into the national NARI CotY competition. We worked hard as a team on the submission, pulling all our resources together. I am so very proud of our teams for all the hard work they put into both the project and the competition submission. This is a very proud moment for me as an owner and member of Northlight Custom Builders’ team!”

“This year’s submissions were outstanding, making the job of our esteemed judges very difficult,” said Tracy Wright, senior director, member engagement and governance at NARI. The judging panel, representing industry experts, selected winners based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, and degree of difficulty.
