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.”

This company is first-rate. Each member of the team is respectful, attentive, knowledgeable, and kind. The experience thus far has been enormously positive.
“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!!
