Dave Stephens, Carpenter
Central to our proven design build approach is the expert craftspeople who make it all happen–professional carpenters like Dave Stephens, who’s obsessed with home remodeling and considers himself a combination hardcore do-it-yourselfer and team player.
Dave assists the MSDB lead carpenters in getting projects done on time, on budget, and to specifications. From demolition to rough carpentry, cabinet installations to trim finishes, Dave loves carpentry and does whatever is needed for the company. Whether running base, setting doors, or doing window and door casing, Dave is committed. “I love helping to bring a vision to life and breathing new life into an old house,” beams Dave. “Nothing is more fulfilling than successfully completing a project!” He overcomes every obstacle with creative innovation and tireless dedication. “Projects at their start seem to have insurmountable challenges, but day after day we tackle each one until we knock the job out of the park, and look back with incredible satisfaction at a job well done!”
After leading the successful American post-hardcore band, We Came As Romans, for 14 years, Dave decided it was time to settle down a bit and joined MainStreet in 2019. Currently still a band member, Dave is limiting his music career to minimal touring with the band. Dave has travelled extensively with the band and truly loves to travel with his wife. He has been to 42 international countries and 49 American states. He also plays ice hockey and is a raving Red Wings fan. When not exploring restaurants or wine tasting, he hikes with his dogs Remy and Izzy.
“Both dogs are rescues,” smiles Dave. “Our family keeps growing because we succumb to ‘foster fails’–seems every shelter pet that visits winds up staying!” The Stephens Family also supports Lifeline Animal Rescue and the Human Society.
Wellness is another focus. Dave supports The Kyle Pavone Foundation, MusicCares, and Heart Support. “Mental health awareness is so important,” insists Dave. “Overall health concerns impact us all, especially those who can’t afford care. We do what we can to help.”

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.
