Birmingham, MI – June 14, 2022 – This year’s Detroit Home Design Awards were presented by DOBI Real Estate, with two 1st-place wins presented to MainStreet Design Build. “We were thrilled to attend this annual event honoring such excellence in remodeling,” beams Christine Ramaekers, Vice President of MainStreet Design Build, “and we’re even more thrilled to win first place in two categories.”
The firm’s first win was in the Laundry Room/Mudroom category.
“We completely transformed the utility room by opening it up into a large, L-shaped space,” elaborates Christine. “We first changed the layout to alleviate a tight walkway, and then moved the washer and dryer to the back of the room to make a bigger, more user-friendly area.” The rooms now flow together with a galley-style entry that incorporates locker space and a desk, message center, and built-in crates for the family’s dogs. The rear section now has a large desk where the mom can plan, craft, and wrap. “The family loved it, a crowded place livened up and easier to work within.”
MainStreet’s second first-place win was in the Small Remodel (Up to 1,000 Square Feet) category.
“The kitchen layout was challenged by a path crossing through the workspace, and the main entry point cutting through the kitchen,” says Christine. “The entry points were moved to each end, and a nook archway to the family room, rear entry, and mudroom was completely opened.” By removing all cabinetry from the rear wall, kids were offered a place to gather around the now oversized and spacious island. “Keeping the rear wall cabinet-free,” added Christine, “made it possible to add new, larger windows overlooking the gorgeous pool.”
Proud to be a full-service, design-build remodeling firm, MainStreet Design Build is dedicated to creating a luxurious end-to-end experience through personal care, accountability, timeless design, and exacting attention to detail. “For over 30 years our in-house design team, staff of carpenters, and a deep bench of skilled tradesmen have made the remodeling process comfortable, enjoyable, and safe,” smiles Christine. “Having produced elegant results made possible through our seamless design-build process, we’re honored to win these awards, and thank our many happy homeowners throughout the Detroit area who have entrusted us to help make their dreams come true.”

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.
