What our clients say

“After years of daydreaming, planning and saving we decided we were ready to remodel our home. Our children gone, the drama of the remodel would only affect the two of us.

We had heard of 36th Avenue Design|Build’s work the year before, seen some examples of recent projects and shared the design in a first meeting. They were quick to grasp what we wanted to achieve and in a few meetings with the architect we were set for demolition. A major remodel really is a leap of faith – you commit your time and other resources to the discretion of the artist and hope that your vision is shared. Add to that the unknowns behind the walls and ceiling suddenly revealed, and you can easily become overwhelmed.

They helped us through these events identifying solutions to choose from, both practical and creative. The result far exceeded our dreams. It gives us energy and peace simultaneously. As an expression of the collaboration in matching materials with design the result is stunning. We highly recommend 36th Avenue Design|Build.”

“We were introduced to 36th Avenue Design/Build through our trusted electrician as one of the few contractors that he uses in his own home. We were doing a large, stressful remodel with a complicated grain-matched kitchen installation and Josh was the perfect fit. Josh was very professional with us, our neighbors, and condo building management. He was also a great sounding board for design ideas. His attention to detail was higher than any other contractor I’ve worked with and our kitchen turned out perfect! He was also very organized and clean while on the job, which we really appreciated since we were living in the space while it was being remodeled. We couldn’t have been happier with Josh and his work and we highly recommend Josh to all of our friends.”

“Our first project with 36th Avenue Design|Build was a kitchen remodel in 2009 and we’ve been coming back for repeat business ever since, including replacing the siding on our home and building custom gates for our yard. In our minds, Josh, Jeff, and their team of employees/subcontractors have become synonymous with: quality, artful craftsmanship, patience, trustworthiness, expertise, and personal care. It’s incredible how flawless our experiences have been each time. Our investment in their work has been worth every penny. Confidently recommend working with them!”

“36th Avenue Design|Build has worked on numerous projects on my 1923 craftsman-style house, including a den addition, new front and back porches, a new driveway and fence, bathroom and kitchen finishing, as well as many smaller projects. In each and every case, they approached the initial design with intelligent and comprehensive suggestion and detail, always bearing in his mind’s eye the existing structure so that the resulting addition will be cohesive and beautiful. In each and every case, the outcome is a thing of beauty while incorporating practicability and sensibility. 36th Avenue Design|Build is extremely trustworthy and reliable, updating the status of the project all along the way in layman’s terms. I feel immeasurably fortunate to have his signature work gracing my home and is evidenced by the countless compliments I receive from people. Their work is stellar and beautiful – there is no one I would recommend more highly.”


“36th Avenue Design|Build was amazing to work with, they did an amazing job in our home. They worked with us on materials and stayed within our budget. The craftsmanship is fantastic, everything is done well to the finest detail. They worked with a subcontractor for our ceiling texture, which was impeccable work as well. We are looking forward to having him work in our home again and would highly recommend them to anyone. Their work is truly superb.”

“36th Avenue Design|Build worked with us as a consultant while we remodeled our kitchen, contributing to decisions on the design, helping to revise language in the contract with our existing builder, and inspecting work before we signed off on it. Part confidant, part subject matter expert, and part validator of the process at hand – having 36th Avenue Design|Build at our side throughout the remodel helped us focus on what was really important and feel re-assured that things were being done correctly.”
