Legacy Wins 2016 NARI MN Contractor of the Year Award


Minneapolis, MN (Nov. 18, 2016) – The Legacy Building Co. was named 2016 MN Contractor of the Year (CotY) last night at the National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s (NARI) annual Gala held at International Market Square.

Legacy was recognized in the entire house (remodeling) under $250,000 category before a record attendance of 331 remodeling industry colleagues and friends. Legacy founder Craig Jansma was joined on stage by crew members Erik Reider, Jonathan Bednark, Greg Holmquist and Christian Anderson.




The winning project featured creative remodeling of all three levels of a Minnetonka home, plus new Marvin Windows and a reclaimed 1914 clay tile roof. The mid-level boasted two extraordinary heated penny floors assembled with nearly 100,000 hand-placed coins. The  Star Tribune  featured the penny floors on the front page of its Sunday Homes section here.

Legacy scored the remodeling industry win on its first entry into the annual CotY Awards. NARI members entered a total of 89 projects in 26 categories this year.

“Our mantra throughout the project was ‘to make it special.’  The award recognition is a great way to cap off the job,” Craig said.
