Ingrained in our culture is a desire to contribute to the community in which we live and work. That is why you will see us donating our time and resources to several organizations that are near and dear to our hearts all year round.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County assists hundreds of families each year through programs in homeownership, homeowner-occupied critical home repairs, veterans housing assistance, and financial education and mentoring to those not yet ready for the homeownership experience.
For several years, MainStreet Design Build has been a proud sponsor of Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County, volunteering hours on Habitat projects and sponsoring the annual Fall Extravaganza that raises money to provide safe and affordable housing for low-income families in Oakland County every November.
MainStreet’s very own Steve Ramaekers was also appointed to the Board of Directors in May 15, 2015 and spent several years serving the organization well, actively pursuing the organization’s mission to put God’s love into action, bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope.
In celebration of our silver anniversary in 2016, MainStreet Design Build partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County again, along with Lawrence Technological University (LTU) and other industry leaders to build a home using a new community-focused design developed by university students. This partnership worked to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building this affordable home, providing a “hand up” and not a “hand out.”
If you have any interest in helping us support this fabulous organization, and building hope for the community, we welcome you to join us.
Seaholm High School’s Annual Career Day
With two boys of their own (both active in the community), it was an easy decision for both Steve and Christine Ramaekers to support the local high school. For the past couple years, MainStreet Design Build has participated in Seaholm High School’s Annual Career Day, joining over 70 businesses in helping students realize their goals of higher education and exposing them to various career choices. During Career Day, students are given an opportunity to visit with MainStreet owners individually, ask questions, and gain a better understanding of the skills and education required for a job in remodeling.
Toys for Tots, Run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve
Each year, MainStreet Design Build supports Toys for Tots and their efforts to present holiday toys to less fortunate children in Oakland County. We typically start collecting new, unwrapped toys at our office the last week in November, which runs through the 3rd week in December. Thanks to our charitable supporters, over the past two years alone, we have managed to collect over 200 gifts for children in need.
Thank you for allowing us this fortunate privilege to give back to our community each year.
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.
