Brynn Alden Design + Build named NARI-MN 2022 CotY™ winner


The National Association of the Remodeling Industry of MN (NARI-MN) Named its CotY™ (Contractor of the Year) Winners

St Paul, MN, November 10, 2022]—The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI of MN) named Brynn Alden Design + Build], in Cottage Grove, MN, 2022 Gold Winner in the $60,001 -$100,000 Kitchen category of its annual awards competition.

Each year, NARI-MN presents CotY awards to members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their remodeling projects. This is the highest form of recognition by industry leaders and peers. This year there were 102 entries that totaled more than $27 million worth of remodeling projects.

Contractors from around the metropolitan area vie for CotY Awards each year. Judging is based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, and degree of difficulty by an impartial panel of industry experts. NARI-MN named over 50 winners at its annual awards gala at A’BULAE in St. Paul. Winners can advance to Regional and National competition, representing quality Minnesota craftsmanship and innovation. Winners at the Regional and National level will be awarded in April of 2023.

The goal was to create an open concept and an updated kitchen/entertaining space that is functional for an empty nest couple that love to cook together. To obtain this layout, a nonload bearing wall was demolished between the kitchen and living room. A large island replaced a standard table. Built in hutch/pantry storage replaced a traditional China hutch. Dated sheet vinyl and carpeting were replaced with LVP in the entire space to create a cohesive look throughout. The mix of modern and transitional materials, finishes, and fixtures result in the perfect blend (marriage) of both their American and English cultures.
