A Local Family Business
Northwest Contour is a premier building company that takes pride in the art of building quality custom residences. We specialize in “northwest contemporary” homes that merge creative design with sound building practices. Each Northwest Contour home is uniquely branded; whether by reclaimed timbers, steel accents, rustic live edge countertops, or custom built pieces, each home reflects the distinctive style of the northwest.
Kristian Nunnelee, the owner of Northwest Contour, is a Seattle native who is a third-generation carpenter. Working side by side with his father, he learned how to operate a skill-saw and swing a hammer at the age of ten. His love for construction continued as he worked as a carpenter through college and young adulthood. After receiving his BA from the University of Montana he came back to the Seattle area and honed his skills in carpentry and craftsmanship. In 2007 he started Northwest Contour. After several years of focusing on residential and small commercial remodels he found his niche in new construction and real estate investment, pouring his passion for artistry into unique custom homes. Kristian lives in the Ballard area with his wife and three daughters.
