Students get a glimpse into an exciting career as a designer, architect and remodeling contractor
Birmingham, MI, June 1, 2018—On May 30th, Seaholm High School’s 7th Annual Career Day gave hundreds of students a chance to start thinking about their future career goals. MainStreet Design Build joined nearly 100 local businesses in welcoming high school students into their place of business sharing important information about their company, jobs in their industry, and the education and skills students need to succeed.
Through this program, students were encouraged to realize their goals of higher education by exposing them to various career choices. One of those career choices was the remodeling/construction industry.
Chase Mentag, Gray Kinnie and Max Loyd were three Seaholm High School juniors who visited MainStreet Design Build, an award-winning luxury design/build remodeling firm and staple of the local business community for over 25 years. These students were 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.
These three gentlemen also toured MainStreet’s office, participated in several meetings, and even visited a construction jobsite to meet and visit with MainStreet’s production team. From sales and marketing to administrative operations and the design/build process, they got a glimpse of what it is like to run a remodeling business.
“This is the second year MainStreet participated in Seaholm High School’s Career Day,” said MainStreet Design Build’s vice president Christine Ramaekers. “We’re hoping this program today gives these young gentlemen a good idea of what they’ll have to do to get into the remodeling industry and what “day-to-day” life is like in this career. This is a real life experience they are getting.”

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.
