Rich Nichols

Jobsite Foreman

Rich brings his many years of valuable construction experience to Merit Homes’ team in the field. Like the entire Merit crew, he often performs a wide variety of tasks in a single day, from assisting with landscape plantings to installing appliances. Described by his coworkers as a “positive force,” Rich prides himself on being punctual and doing whatever it takes to keep build schedules on track and on time. When asked what attracted him to join Merit Homes, Rich said, “What I like most is that Merit builds quality houses. We don’t cut corners.”

An outdoor enthusiast, Rich can often be found at the helm of his 42-foot cruiser on weekends. He most enjoys taking the whole family—including five grandchildren—on tours of the San Juan islands, or “sail-gating” on Lake Washington for Husky football games.
