We are passionate about the work we do for our clients


HOUSE is always looking for new ways to innovate and evolve our skills to offer the best design and construction experience. We focus on the collaboration with our clients within the creative process right up to the day you move in.  It’s our Adaptability and the willingness to manage the changes while the project is underway that make it possible to build exactly what our clients desire. The unique quality of our builds is evident in the relationships we build with our clients and our dedication to our craft. We feel by connecting with our clients we help to create stability, excitement, and the foundation of a better project.



Because we handle everything from concept to strategy, to design, and all the way through construction, HOUSE is able to manage every step of the development. This means that the production timeline, permits, the inspections, subcontractors, vendors, and the budget are all controlled by one team. That is why when we say it will be done right and on time we can back it up.

Though their experience, creativity, organization and passion, Doug and the guys at HOUSE have made a very complicated project manageable and just plain fun. Their concepts were original and the came up with some very unique solutions to problems we though would be difficult to overcome. Very happy we contacted HOUSE.
