By John Byrd SPECIAL TO THE FAIRFAX COUNTY TIMES
A rear elevation solution that combines a mid-level screened-in porch with an open-air “kids” play zone below has won a regional “Contractor of the Year” award (CotY) for Michael Nash Design Build and Homes. The design solution– in which a builder-grade screen porch been replaced by a substantially larger accommodation with expanded outdoor entertainment components– was implemented in the home of an Ashburn couple who had occupied it for 14 years. The project was named the best exterior ($100,00.00 to $250,000.00) in eleven south Atlantic states by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
In accepting the prize, Michael Nash president and founder Sonny Nazemian was quick to acknowledge his company’s highperformance design team, which grappled with several site and interior design challenges.
“Homeowners today are seeking plans that fully utilize previously overlooked space enhancement options,” Nazemian said. “As a firm, we have become particularly adept at achieving large improvements in functionality and interior design while adding comparatively little square footage.
