Detroit Home commissioned an esteemed independent panel of judges for the competition.

These judges review hundreds of entries and choose nearly 200 category winners.

“When it came to restoring this beautiful craftsman home, our clients wanted to remain architecturally faithful to the home’s original character by designing and building a gorgeous, new covered porch that paid homage to the early 20th century,” said MainStreet’s VP and Certified Kitchen Designer Christine Ramaekers. “The end result was exactly what we envisioned.”
“We are honored to be a multiple Detroit Home design award-winner, particularly among all of the fabulous design entries this year,” says added MainStreet’s President Steven Ramaekers. “We love what we do, and are proud of the recognition.”

Christopher provided the vision and helped execute the plan. He was so helpful guiding me in all selections and making sure we stuck to our plan. My kitchen refresh is everything and more. My kitchen now looks like it belongs in my home and really is a “wow” feature. I just love, love, love the way it came out!
“We hired Main Street Design Build in 2019 and all the had a full home completion in early 2021 (thanks, pandemic)! Main Street planned our remodel (kitchen, basement, mudroom, bedrooms, and more) into 3 phases in order to allow our family to live in the home through construction! MSDB took a whole day for each phase where they “prepped” the home with plastic protectors to ensure our living space was clean and safe from debris for our 4 kids and dogs. Not once in a year was a nail left out for my barefoot family. Truly, the attention to detail was top-notch. What could have easily been a horrible year was still an enjoyable process. MSDB communicated with us EVERY DAY so we knew who would be in our home and when. For a larger project, we were assigned project manager Dwain, and we saw him at our home every day to ensure everything was going as planned. We even had daily task notifications along with pictures daily via their communication software. This communication software was one of their selling points for us. Steve, Christine, and their team’s combined experience has lead them to be so knowledgeable and have a great network of other expert professionals in the area. Lastly and importantly, MSDB was conscious of our budget throughout and providing the right from the beginning of the project all the way to picking out finishing touches. If you are looking for a one-stop company to help oversee any size project (our home is nearly 8000 square feet with basement) look no further. The combination of professionalism, experience, creativity, and trustworthiness is unmatched. If we ever have any future work needed to be done, we plan to continue working with our new Main Street family!”
It’s an amazing company. Very professional. They always listen and make sure home owners are happy with the final result. The quality of their work is outstanding. My project manager Jonh M. was always there to listen and help. He always kept us informed of every step and made sure subcontractors were doing their best. My Designer Amy is amazing. She understood what we wanted from day 1 and always made sure we were happy with every selection. Very knowledgeable.
This is my third project with MainStreet Design Build, I could not imagine working with any other company. They always give attention to detail and are very responsive to any concerns I may have.
Mainstreet is an exceptional company! We could not ask for more. To the design process to the construction and the end product. Just perfect!
“It was an amazing experience. The quality and level of professionalism are great with this company.”
Our experience with Main Street has been great! The size of our project was considerable- addition with kitchen/family room/ breakfast nook downstairs and Master suite w balcony upstairs plus a remodeling of the old kitchen into pantry, first floor laundry and mudroom. We have two grade school aged kids and had no choice but to live in our house during construction. We were prepared for the rigors of living in dusty, loud and disruptive conditions but the process with Main Street has been very easy and relatively smooth. Although we have our absolute favorites, we feel that everyone who has worked on the project has been courteous and professional. We would use Main Street Design Build again in a heartbeat!!
“We couldn’t be happier with our choice to work with Mainstreet for our exterior remodel. The design process leading up to the build was a refreshing experience. Steve and his team met with us on multiple occasions and honestly worked with us to design a house that made sense for our aesthetics and ultimately honored it’s past. The actual remodeling consisted of re-siding our entire home, reconstructing the front porch including a new copper roof, IPE decking, a new central staircase, refacing the existing service staircase, changing a flat roof line to a gable and so much more. We became very close Dwain and his team who did all the construction work. I can wholeheartedly say that these guys are GOOD PEOPLE. They care, and they get things right. I’ll be honest Mainstreet is more expensive than others, but you get you what you pay for. At least, in this case, we did. Our house is a significant piece of our lives, and I’m glad we were able to work with a company who took pride in the work they do. Hey, If you’re reading this and considering Mainstreet, you should take the time to meet with them. They do a great job of explaining who they are and how things work in their initial meet and greet.”
I want to let you know what an outstanding job Marq has been doing. Toward the end of the project we started communicating more by phone. He has been so responsive and attentive! My husband and I really appreciate him and we wanted to be sure to let you know! Big kudos to Marq!! I love the work you did SOOOO much! I am obsessed with the new space! We spoke to about 6 architects/contractors and nobody had the design ideas that Doug had. He had a vision and it was executed better than I could have even imagined! And with Christopher’s help/guidance- he made the interior design so fun/easy- he helped turned it into my dream space! As we wrap up this project I want to say THANK YOU! I could not be happier with our new space. As for Marq- I am so grateful for him! he helped up end this project on such a positive note. It feels great!
