(SAN DIEGO – February 9, 2024) – San Diego-based design build firm Jackson Design and Remodeling (JDR) was recognized with two 2024 Regional Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) for a coastal home inspired by Cape Cod classics and a hilltop home with a Craftsman aesthetic. JDR’s CotY wins are in the categories Entire House $750,000-$1,000,000 and Entire House over $1,000,000. Regional winners advance to the finals, competing against the other projects in their categories from seven regions across the country; JDR is in the Southwest region. Judges vote on the overall winners in each category to determine which are honored as National CotY award winners. This year, winners will be announced on April 5. In 2024, NARI received a near record 602 entries from across the United States representing over $230 million in remodeling projects.

Each year, NARI presents CotY Awards to members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their remodeling projects. The judging panel of industry experts selects winners based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation and degree of difficulty. The CotY Awards are the highest form of recognition by industry leaders and peers.

“NARI CotY winners represent the best of the best in the remodeling industry,” says NARI Co-CEO Tracy Wright, CAE, CNAP. “This year’s competition received the highest number of entries in over a decade, and the judges consistently commented on the rewards of reviewing this level of superior craftsmanship and design. CotY judging is our favorite time of year, as it’s our opportunity to view the fine work our members do every day.”

2024 Regional CotY Award Winner, Entire House Remodel $750,000-$1,000,000

Coronado Cays, San Diego

Designed for a couple who planned to retire in this home on the water and pass it on to future generations, this stunning coastal design was inspired by Cape Cod classics. The home is in a very desirable location, Coronado Cays, where many homeowners keep boats in slips. The 1970s design of the exterior and interior was dark and dated, and needed an extensive remodel. Now fresh, bright, and welcoming both outside and inside, the new design captures the essence of coastal living. Additional square footage was added to the second level of the home and the exterior was dramatically transformed. A palette of blues, grays, and whites echoes the tranquility of the sea, while details like wainscoting, shiplap, and molding add traditional character. The home now feels like a perfect expression of the lifestyle of its neighborhood. See the video tour of this home.

2024 Regional CotY Award Winner, Entire House Remodel Over $1,000,000

La Jolla, San Diego

This whole home remodel for a couple who love to entertain and wanted to honor the character of their 1948 house, the new design is connected to the home’s Craftsman roots while significantly expanding square footage and appreciation of breathtaking coastal views. The new exterior was designed with a more pronounced entry and the integration of a second level that stays true to the home’s origins. The kitchen was significantly expanded to welcome cooking and entertaining. A new second level encompassing an art room and an expansive master suite with a workout room and incredible views doubled the living space. This stunning whole home remodel captures the essence of its location with thoughtfully curated architecture and design. See the video tour of this home.

In 2023, JDR won a national CotY award in the Entire Home Over $1,000,000 category for a sea and sun inspired remodel with stunning views of Sunset Cliffs and extensive outdoor living spaces.
