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.

“I just wanted to let you know that even though summer is almost over we still get compliments on the work you did on our front porch. We are sitting on the porch now and we always have people walking by on their way to the beach…..we are constantly told how beautiful our house looks. Thank you for everything and please pass this along to Kyle and everyone else.”
Christopher provided the vision and helped execute the plan. He was so helpful guiding me in all selections and making sure we stuck to our plan. My kitchen refresh is everything and more. My kitchen now looks like it belongs in my home and really is a “wow” feature. I just love, love, love the way it came out!
My husband and I give our absolute highest recommendation for MainStreet Design Build! They’ve worked on many projects big and small for us over the past few years — from a total home office design/build to conquering a longstanding drainage issue outside the home. They’ve introduced us to stellar people in the industry — their handyman Marq, painters, plumbers, carpenters. Everybody is first class. MainStreet project manager Dwain is on my speed dial list as he’s helped us out so many times with projects or problems at our home. He is knowledgeable, dependable and just always has a great attitude. Will hope to have some photos of our beautiful MainStreet home office posted soon. Thanks Steve and Christine!
Main Street did our complete home remodel in 2020-2021. They were perfect professionals, and we never had any of the problems that we ran into with EVERY.OTHER.CONTRACTOR.IN.EXISTENCE. I cannot recommend them enough!
The design team was very helpful. The bathroom turned out beautiful in the end. Very courteous and professional staff. Very detail oriented. They have a team that has many excellent design ideas. The workmanship also was excellent.
“We hired Main Street Design Build for our laundry room and kitchen remodel. Like most people, we were nervous to take on such a large project, but after our first meeting with Steve, our nerves were put to rest. The entire staff exceeded our expectations at every stage of our project. The attention to detail, beautiful design options and finishes and level of communication that they offer is unique. It was an A+ experience from the office staff/designers/skilled trades and of course, our amazing project manager who made everything run smooth, on schedule, and on budget. We now have a beautiful kitchen and laundry room that we love to show off – and everyone who has seen it is equally impressed (and a little jealous). We can’t wait for our next project.”
Main Street has been terrific throughout our project so far. We are pleased with the level of service we have received.
I was most satisfied with how MainStreet stepped up to the plate on several material defects and immediately replaced and/or fixed the issue with no questions asked.
Mainstreet is top notch!! They make your visions come to life and have such great ideas to help make it that much more!! The people at Mainstreet are the best!! I was very comfortable and trusted all who came into our home, some started to feel like friends/ family. When they finished our kitchen I actually missed seeing them!! Highly recommend Mainstreet!!
