Company Partners with Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County, Lawrence Technological University and other Industry Leaders to Build a New Home
Birmingham, MI – May 15, 2016 – Acknowledging 25 years in business this year, MainStreet Design Build celebrates a long history of creating award-winning kitchens, bathrooms and home additions, in southeast Oakland County. Founded in 1991, by owners Steve and Christine Ramaekers, MainStreet Design Build has grown from a small construction company to a reputable leader in the residential, design build remodeling industry.
“We have achieved this milestone with the hard work and dedication of our innovative design team, management and support staff, talented carpentry team and the personalized customer service that permeates throughout our organization. We have dedicated ourselves to 25 years of process innovation and project management efficiencies to provide our clients with superior quality home remodeling services. It feels great to be where we are today,” Steve Ramaekers said.
In celebration of this milestone, MainStreet Design Build is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County, Lawrence Technological University (LTU) and other industry leaders to build a home using a new community-focused design developed by university students. This partnership will work to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building this affordable home, providing a “hand up” and not a “hand out.”
MainStreet Design Build will be volunteering their hearts, hands and voices to sponsor this first ever attempt at LTU’s new model of construction that teaches its students to approach architecture and design with a holistic perspective.
From now through October 2nd, MainStreet Design Build and its partners will be raising awareness and soliciting donations in support of Habitat Oakland County’s Home Run Fundraiser. MainStreet’s goal is to bring in $25,000. To donate or learn more visit https://www.crowdrise.com/habitat-oakland-county-home-run-/fundraiser/mainstreetdesignbuild.
Throughout 2016, MainStreet will also be taking a look at where they started, what they have achieved, and revisiting their plans for the future. In September, they are inviting clients, vendors and trade partners, along with employees and their families, to a fun-filled open house event to celebrate their milestone.

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.
