Client Testimonial

Posted on July 25th, 2010 by

We recently received a phone call from a client regarding the paint colors we used for his home. He wasn’t able to locate the original notebook we gave him when we finished the project over four years ago and he was wondering if we could help. Maggie Bauer Goss, Design Build Team project architect, was able to quickly find the information on her computer and we forwarded on the paint selection to the client right away.

Below is a testimonial from our client, homeowner of our Sunset Hills project.

For my wife Patty and me, the greatest part of our experience with the Design Build Team was the communication.  The quality of the job was there but no matter how good the contractor no job goes perfectly so lines of communication are crucial. Dave and his assistants were always available to talk and meet with us.  The whole contracting group was courteous and good people to be around. We had a pizza party when the job ended where the workers and even some of their spouses came over to see the finished product. – Joe

Architectural Challenges

Posted on July 19th, 2010 by

This kitchen, in an Indiana home, is making the most of their architecture features, especially the Brazilian cherry and wrought iron spiraling staircase in the center of the room. To some the spiral staircase would present a challenge, but for designer Kristin Okeley, she played up the focal point and built her kitchen around the staircase.

The open floorplan makes the space appear larger; the actual size of the kitchen is just 368 sq ft.   Okeley accentuated the curvature of the staircase with the center island.


What do you think of this kitchen?
