BIRMINGHAM, MI – March 31, 2009 – Each year, Detroit Home Magazine holds a competition for designers, architects, builders and artisans. This competition offers a variety of categories for experts to submit works from the previous year. A variety of experts from across the country review the submissions and only “the best of the best” receive the awards.
MainStreet Design Build, a Birmingham based full service design through construction firm since 1991, was selected as a 2009 winner in the Small Bath Category for their outstanding work on a Bloomfield Village home. “The master bedroom and bathroom in our 1958 Dutch Colonial had never been renovated. The original area consisted of the bedroom with two awkward closets, an open dressing area with a vanity and sink and a small outdated bathroom. The entire area was dysfunctional, but included enough space to make some significant design changes,” describes homeowner Julie Wardlow. She added “the designers at MainStreet borrowed space from an adjacent bedroom and were able to provide room for a private toilet room, custom shower, free standing air tub and beautiful two-person vanity area. We absolutely love our new space!”
“We are extremely honored to receive this award”, says Christine Ramaekers, CKD, Vice President of MainStreet Design Build. “In the current state of this economy, it’s great to see that the local industry is still creating and being recognized for their wonderful works. We continue to be committed to working in this area on both small and large projects and really enjoy what we do for our clients,” she adds. “While national design competitions are a great way to be recognized by your peers, winning a Detroit Home award is special because the people we work for get to see their work published in an excellent, local publication.”
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.
