Birmingham, MI – March 29, 2018 – Each year, Metro Detroit’s design community celebrates winners of the Annual Detroit Home Design Awards honoring professionals of award-winning home design. This year’s 14th Annual gala event was presented by Michigan Design Center on Thursday, March 29th, 2018 at The Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center.
Detroit Home commissioned an esteemed independent panel of judges for the competition. The arbiters of design included those with a variety of backgrounds from all over the country, drawn from national media, respected academic institutions, private practice, and nationally recognized names from design and architecture. These judges review hundreds of entries and choose nearly 200 category winners.
MainStreet Design Build was among those category winners for Small Space Remodels (up to 1,000 Square Feet).

“In designing this addition, our goal was to create better traffic flow through the new mudroom on the first floor, while making it possible to expand and re-design the master bath and bedroom on the second floor,” said MainStreet’s VP and Certified Kitchen Designer Christine Ramaekers. “The end result was exactly what we envisioned.”
“We are honored to be included among the many designers who were recognized for their significant contribution to design this year,” says added MainStreet’s President Steven Ramaekers. “We are all certainly proud of the recognition.”

“I just wanted to let you know that even though summer is almost over we still get compliments on the work you did on our front porch. We are sitting on the porch now and we always have people walking by on their way to the beach…..we are constantly told how beautiful our house looks. Thank you for everything and please pass this along to Kyle and everyone else.”
“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!”
Our experience with MainStreet has been great! The project manager quickly and efficiently minimized surprises throughout the project and also worked expeditiously to resolve any concerns.
In the Design portion we found the 3D drawing tool very productive with Steve when working on the plans for the house. Once the Build stage started the use of Co-Construct was great for keeping track of the updates on the project. The overall “build” part of the project took about 3 months once it started and was for the most part kept on schedule. It was the planning and designing that took the longest and where expectations were set. For us, this was a valuable part of the overall process. In addition, the MainStreet team use of today’s latest technology made the process a lot easier and more enjoyable.
Main Street is a very professional company – from initial meeting to end of project – everyone is helpful, works with integrity and makes the process as easy as possible. It’s clear that the employees are proud of their work and want to do a great job. App is easy to use for making selections, tracking financials and progress. The quality of work is exceptional. We absolutely love our new space and are very pleased with our decision to select Main Street.
MainStreet Design Build exceeded my expectations with quality. They completed the work beautifully. The workers are super kind and helpful. They helped me move furniture and cleaned up and put away some things. They are very professional.
“I have used Mainstreet many times over the last 15 years to do both major and minor remodeling work on my house. Christine Ramaekers did an excellent job with the kitchen remodel. She stayed within my budget and helped find granite countertops at a lower than expected cost. She made great suggestions for the decorative tile and found a color and design combination that was exactly what I wanted. With Mainstreet, you get top notch tradesmen, personal service that follows through after the job is done, on-target estimates with no surprise over-runs and the best quality.”
This is the first project I’ve done on my own, and I didn’t know what to expect. Everything was so smooth. They kept me informed. All the workmen were so trustworthy….I was extremely pleased. My bathroom is gorgeous. Amy Fisher was fabulous. She exceeded my expectations. She allowed me to gravitate toward certain things. She didn’t impose her style.
Having heard horror stories from friends and family about their remodeling projects we were pleasantly surprised at the level of service, attention to detail, proactive communication, and quality service provided from MainStreet.
“This is the third kitchen remodel that we have done in our 52 years of marriage and this was by far our best experience. Main Street is a team of professionals, each with expertise in their field, who guided us along. Everyone was always organized and knowledgeable. The carpentry workmanship was exceptional and any issue was immediately addressed by the project manager and solved. They said they wanted to make us happy and they did!”
