After more than two decades in the home renovation industry here in Lynnwood, Nathan Coons understands what it takes to create a successful project.
Quality materials and skilled professionals, yes, but it’s also about clear communication, a passion for people and the ability to understand their goals.
“I realize the value of remodeling and working in people’s homes. It’s very personal,” says the owner of Coons Construction. “And having been in the industry for so long, I believe there’s an opportunity to change it for the better.”
“I wanted to be forward-thinking and build better, more comfortable, green and healthier homes.”
Drawing on his knowledge and expertise as his team undertakes everything from kitchen and bath remodels to home additions, “I enjoy the building science and trying different methods that work,” he says.
No matter the scope of the project, communication and transparency are key.
“We are transparent, detail-oriented and actively listen to what you’d like to see in your custom home remodel,” he says.
“A lot’s changed in the past 20 years in how society as a whole communicates, so I want to move into a new era and be forward-thinking in our approach.”
Green building, solid construction
From start to finish, the goal is to integrate quality construction with environmental practices: “We are building projects that last long term. We also add green building science for today’s times and healthy home reconstruction,” Coons says.
Planning makes perfect
Some projects are bigger than others, but regardless of size or scope planning and communication are the essential to a successful project.
“Because we’re focused on more than just production, we take the time to consult and fully plan the project before starting, so the rest just goes more smoothly.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned after 20 years in this industry, it’s that the more time you put into planning, the happier clients are and the better the project goes.”
A little creativity goes a long way
Recognizing that it’s the personal touches that make a house a home, Coons enjoys working with homeowners on meaningful details and turning them into reality. He recalls two artists who had their design on paper, and he turned into the real thing– right down to the painted bird doorknob and distinctive wallpaper!
“We love what we do and the customer knows that, but we also communicate with them throughout the entire project,” he says.
“I am passionate about the people I’m meeting and finding creative ways to help them reach their goals.”
