NARI Coty Awards Logo

The prestigious Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards are given each year by NARI of Greater Cleveland, to members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their remodeling projects. Entries are judged anonymously using criteria like aesthetic appeal, functionality and craftsmanship.  

2022 NARI CotY Award - First Place Addition

The client wanted to replace a dated sun porch with a spacious, light-filled great room that brings the outdoors in. We created an addition that was both spacious and cozy with beautiful architectural features like transom windows. vaulted shiplap ceilings, wood beams. fireplace. and custom-built-ins. The space meets the clients' wish for plenty of natural light without looking like a porch. While the new great room can be used year-round and includes a new open-air covered porch area and new concrete patio with stone walls, both are great for entertaining and enjoying beautiful views of the yard. 

2022 NARI CotY Award - First Place Bathroom 

As part of a whole house remodel, the client wanted to put a special focus on their primary bath. The existing bathroom was very dated with pine cabinets, large square tile flooring, and small shower. By reconfiguring the bathroom, walk-in closet, and laundry room floor plan we were able to create a stylish and functional space complete with large glass and tile shower and freestanding tub. The new bathroom features beautiful high-end fixtures and luxuries including heated tile flooring. The end result is a glamorous bathroom that addresses the clients' wish list created with the highest quality design and craftsmanship. 

2022 NARI CotY Award -  First Place Basement

This 3800 square foot basement underwent a major transformation. The clients wanted a stylish place to serve many functions including hosting overnight guests and larger gatherings. The space features a large theater style space, an intimate wine room that shuts out the stresses of the day, a custom bar area big enough for a crowd, a separate yoga and fitness room. a well-appointed second kitchen. and an expansive dining room. The client's wish to have a space like no other that soaks in their wooded ravine view this amazingly transformed space checks all their boxes with no detail overlooked. 

2022 NARI CotY Award - First Place Commercial Interior 

Hurst Design Build Remodel was running a growing remodeling business and was desperate for more space. The business required office space, warehouse space and a design center. After an extensive search, our company owners found a building with lots of potential, however the space was in a state of disrepair and would need extensive remodeling. The end result is a stunning transformation. The old empty space is now a beautiful office space and design showroom. No detail was overlooked from the stunning floor tiles to the sunny cupola. Each well thought out space was designed with purpose to drive the business's goals. 

2022 NARI CotY Award - First Place Outdoor Living

This young and social family was looking for a way to extend their outdoor living and entertaining space They wanted to make the mast of their backyard to enjoy time with family and friends. They were looking to add a spacious covered patio with lots of seating to host a large crowd. The design and construction of the outdoor space transformed a large empty backyard into an attractive and comfortable outdoor living space with custom bar, and well-appointed outdoor family room with board and batten accents adding character, heaters to extend the season, and composite decking for easy maintenance. 

2022 NARI CotY Award - 2nd Place Kitchen 

The client's lakefront home was showing its age, especially in the small basic kitchen. The client was looking for a remodeled kitchen that would expand the space and make it more functional and attractive. With the lower ceiling and lack of windows they also wanted to brighten up the space. Without adding an addition, we added new windows, high end finishes, more open wall space, and extended cabinetry into the adjacent sitting room and great room to make the kitchen look and feel dramatically larger and more dynamic with contrasting finishes and feature elements that make the stylish transformation complete.
