Encircle Design (Michelle and Klaas) was fantastic to work with, and I would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a design build company. They were very professional, regularly communicating updates, and quickly addressing any issues that popped up in our remodel project. They have a wonderful eye for the latest styles, but emphasize function over style and look. We've heard so many horror stories from friends about contractors going over budget, not responding to basic communication, and disappearing from projects. Encircle provided a project estimate, which they stuck to throughout the entire project. And they provided a project schedule that was right on the money. They are true professionals in an industry where professional service can be hard to find.

Comment from Encircle Design and Build:
Thank you AJ for your wonderful review! We really appreciate you taking the time to write one, it means a lot to us. When we began the company we had 2 goals- be on time and on budget. It's great that you felt those attributes shine on to your project. We wish you years of happiness in your remodeled home. Cheers! Michelle
We hired Michelle and Klauss for a full kitchen and bathroom remodel, and they were absolutely incredible to work with. They were on time and on budget, and bent over backwards to make it so. We are aware that remodels are often stressful, but Michelle and Klauss were so organized and detail-oriented that we didn't worry a bit. They were patient, thoughtful, and informative throughout the process, and took care to design spaces that are both modern and fit the character of our 1920s bungalow. Our kitchen and bathroom have been transformed into beautiful and functional spaces, and we couldn't be happier with the end result.

Our project involved a total kitchen remodel, adding a full bathroom, and a few miscellaneous projects around the house. This was our first remodel, so we weren’t sure what to expect and had a fair amount of anxiety related to all the decisions and choices that had to be made about the details of the project. Michelle and Klaas were very communicative throughout the project and did a great job walking us through the decision-making process. They were patient and responsive to our questions and directed us in ways that helped us make decisions we felt good about. We are really happy with the results, and Michelle and Klaas were a pleasure to work with. At the outset of the project, they provided us with a calendar/schedule outlining what things would be done when, so we had a clear understanding of what to expect and what the timelines for the various components of the project would be. And, except for one short and unavoidable delay due to weather, they stayed on schedule and finished the work on time. They worked with us on developing a design that really worked to meet our needs using the footprint and constraints of the existing space. One very pleasant surprise was the addition of a good-sized deck off of the new kitchen, which has added another level of livability and enjoyment to our house. They helped us get most of the features and design elements we wanted within the budget we had. And their work transformed our living space in ways we couldn’t imagine. We would definitely work with Encircle Design and Build again!

Encircle Design exceeded our expectations with our major bathroom remodel. Their design ideas, attention to detail, timeliness and professionalism are without a doubt top notch. From beginning to end they made sure we were not only comfortable, but also happy with all the work that was going on. Their sub-contractors were professional and considerate in our home. The whole process was truly a pleasure and we couldn't be happier with the outcome! We highly recommend Encircle and we hope to do business with them in the future!

Encircle is amazing. This was our first remodel project, and we were a bit nervous. Michelle was very gracious and understanding- she walked us through the process. She asked smart questions to better understand what we wanted and came up with beautiful, practical ideas to get the most out of our bathroom. We were able to see a design of the remodel and materials before construction and Michelle set very clear expectations, so we knew what we were in for. The remodel work is better than we could have hoped - lucky for us everything went as planned, on time, and the results were exactly what we had agreed to. Klaas and Michelle really thought of everything, and show a genuine interest in helping us get what we wanted in a reasonable budget. This whole process was much easier than we expected. Seriously, our bathroom is beautiful. Hire Encircle and feel really good about it.

Encircle Design was one of the most professional firms we have worked with. They were able to create a beautiful studio apartment out of a barren room over our garage. There recommendations were good, and they were very clear about what we needed to do to keep with our very tight time frame. They never missed a deadline, and their work has been topnotch.

Michelle and Klaas created something out of not much for our project with them. They fully gutted our kitchen and bath in our 900sq foot home, and we feel like we have moved into a whole new house! The design is top notch, the work is impeccable, and their timing was right on. I can't say enough positive things about our experience with the Encircle Design and Build team.

Michelle and Klass pulled out a small miracle and finished our project about 3 weeks ahead of schedule - we were so psyched to start enjoying the upgraded kitchen! MIchelle is the tile expert - she helps narrow the search and brings the wow factor. Many thanks for a job well done.

I couldn't have been more pleased with the work that Michelle, Klaas and Encircle did to remodel my bathroom. Their design ideas were critical to the project and they executed them flawlessly. Michelle has a knack for knowing what will work--and how to stay within budget. Thanks, Encircle!

Encircle Design and Build remodeled out kitchen, powder room, built a deck off the back and rebuilt part of the foundation. Michelle and Klaas of Encircle were great in every way. Their areas of expertise in designing and planning complement each other. They have strong relationships with all their contractors which makes problem solving smooth. Their attention to detail makes sure that every part of the job is finished to perfection. They have wonderful creativity and energy that they bring to their work, making the process exciting rather than stressful. And they finished ahead of schedule, AMAZING! We love our new space, Thanks.

Encircle Design and Build are a design driven, solutions orientated, project based work team that offer the best quality work and a collaborative and fun environment in which to achieve the right remodel for you. They bring personability, first class project management skills and an eye for design that will surpass any ideas you had for your project. The Kitchen project they completed for us was beyond our imagination and I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you have questions or are unsure about a design feature they work tirelessly with you to achieve the result you had in mind. And they make you feel like you had all the best ideas. Michelle and Klaas are great to work with and I would recommend them to anyone for their ideal home remodel.

Commented: Glass enclosure?It's one piece of glass that is hinged. You can look at the other photos of the project to see what it looks like closed. It's basically 30" wide.
