BIRMINGHAM, MI – March 15, 2011 – Each year, Detroit Home Magazine holds a competition for Michigan-based designers, architects, builders and artisans. This competition offers a variety of categories for these professionals to submit works completed within Michigan or outside of Michigan.
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 full service design through construction firm since 1991, was selected as a 2011 winner in the Additions category for a project completed on a home right here in Birmingham, Michigan.
The winning project included an addition off of the rear of an early 20th century Poppleton Park home. The added space gave the homeowner an exceptional new mud room and 1st floor laundry that now leads to a new custom kitchen and patio. Additional garage storage and an entrance from the garage into the home were also created. The original breakfast nook had a lowered ceiling which
lent itself to a stunning limestone hearth surrounding a commercial Wolf range. The oversized island was designed for comfortable seating with a luxurious hand finished 3 ½” thick cherry countertop. The hand glazed, inset cabinetry, by Plato Woodwork, was designed to fit into the home’s classic theme.
“We are, once again, honored to receive a Detroit Home Design Award”, says Steve Ramaekers, President of MainStreet Design Build. “Our region is vibrant and coming back even stronger. It’s great to see local talent being recognized for our commitment to quality workmanship in this community,” he adds.
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.
