Michael Nash Project wins in Whole House Remodel category
By John Byrd SPECIAL TO THE FAIRFAX COUNTY TIMES
A two-level front and rear elevation expansion to a 60 year old rambler has won a “Contractor of the year” award (CotY) for Nash Design Build and Homes.
The design solution– in which the footprint of a small bungalow was enlarged to accommodate second floor as large as the existing first floor– was introduced to the home of a south Arlington woman who had occupied it for over 30 years.
The project was named the “Best Whole House Remodel For Under $250,000” by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s metro DC chapter.
