MainStreet Design Build first opened its doors on October 14, 1991, with a dream and an ideal to dramatically enhance a homeowner’s remodeling experience. On that cool fall day, we set in motion a legacy of luxury that continues to fuel our passion for design and construction excellence.
Flash forward 30 years to today. Office staff, field staff, and clients reflect on the past and celebrate the future. We humbly share their testimonies with you, as well as our own heartfelt words of reflection, to honor all of the fabulous people who helped us achieve this remarkable milestone.

This year, MainStreet Design Build celebrates its 30-year anniversary. Reflecting on our past and gearing up for a remarkable future, this post honors the 20 current staff members who have helped us achieve this significant milestone. With heartfelt and sometimes humorous recollections, our team shares some of their favorite memories, which are highlighted in this post.
As Christine so perfectly stated, “Here’s to another 30 years of incredible architecture, fine craftsmanship, and lovely relationships. We could not have done this without any part of this family we have built from a phone call.”
Just a note to commend you on a job well done. We now have our dream kitchen! Your crew was great to work with. They were professional, trustworthy and hard working.
Thank you to the entire team for making our home ‘fit’ us! From the first consultation, you understood this wasn’t about trying to make a small house huge. We needed it to suit our lives better, and that is what you gave us.
MainStreet was honest and upfront about the cost of our addition. There were no surprises – they did not low ball up front to add on at the end. The quality and professionalism of the entire team was outstanding. You truly get what you pay for with MainStreet.
We love our kitchen, and MainStreet made that happen! With the help of Steve, Christine and their talented staff, we were able to add a lot more creativity and attractiveness to the design of our kitchen.
Our experience was very positive, we found MainStreet to be very professional, and considerate of our ideas. The job finished very close to the time estimated, which can be rare in that business!
MainStreet’s quality of work was excellent and its employees were very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional.
We love where we live – but we needed to add more space for our growing family. We were impressed with Steve’s design suggestions for better use of space and enhancements to our plans. They really do focus on quality and integrity in every aspect of their work.
They did an excellent job of design. Some very creative design features. They did a great job.
We love our new Kitchen and Mudroom. We appreciate the effort, commitment and quality provided by the entire team at Main Street. Thank you! Kyle and Main Street Team were a pleasure to work with through the build process. The timeline including trades was on target. Co-Construct was an effective way to manage communication and any changes that were delivered throughout the project. The design and deliverables were as expected.
I can’t think of a way that they fell short. I was satisfied with the assistance that I received with regards to picking out the various pieces.
