Cahill Design Build
Design-Build Firms in Alexandria, VA
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 6, 2016
Our relationship with Cahill Design Build dates back over 20 years with Mr. Cahill's original company Botanical Decorators, Inc.. Based on the excellent exterior work performed by that company through the years with two different properties,, when we decided to undertake significant interior renovations in the home we purchased a few years ago, Cahill Design Build was the logical choice. Cahill Design Build has lived up to every expectation we had and then some! Mr. Cahill, along with his lead Interior Designer, Kerry Ann Rodriguez worked with us to design and build our dream kitchen in early 2015. Later that year, as a result of their quality service and craftsmanship, they completed a small spa-type bathroom in our basement gym area that includes a steam shower and custom fit sauna. We are currently working with them on a design to renovate our master and guest bathrooms, and walk in closet. Their in-house custom cabinetry manufacturing is of the highest quality; this ability to customize as requested makes the renovations very personal and allows so many choices when deciding which options are most important to the homeowner. The renovations for both projects were completed on budget and on time, and any adjustments to the original design that resulted because we wanted to make changes were discussed so the change orders were very accurate from a cost perspective. We have found their direct hire work crews to be skilled and trustworthy. With regards to customer interaction, both Mr Cahill and Ms. Rodriquez are the real deal when it comes to their professional skill levels, their creativity, and their ability to really listen to what the homeowner desires. They then turn those ideas into a breathtaking (and we do not use that term lightly) design, that in turn become spectacular room(s). Their attention to detail in their designs - whether it be color schemes, material choices, room functionality, quality appliances, or decor suggestions- is most impressive. Ms Rodriquez, who, as the Interior Designer is the person we most often interact with, is very impressive and very approachable. She is easy to converse with, and is conscientious in overseeing all aspects of the design, product ordering and actual construction. She and Mr Cahill help the homeowners look at multiple possibilities when designing a room and offer excellent suggestions. Also, it is obvious when seeing Ms. Rodriquez, Mr, Cahill and the foreman we have come to depend on, interact regularly on our projects , that they respect one another and enjoy working together, thus forming a well-functioning team who provides excellent service to the homeowner. The subcontractors and suppliers they use for specialized portions of the projects are also well vetted and are selected only because they are highly skilled and provide only the highest quality finished product. Many have had long relationships with Cahill Design. We always appreciate how responsive Mr Cahill and especially Ms Rodriquez are to our queries, questions and/ or concerns at every stage of the overall design/renovation process. The service is very personalized, and they often go above and beyond for their customers. We have both referred Cahill Designs to others, and have willingly provided references when contacted by other potential customers. An added bonus in hiring Cahill Design Build is that through their second company, Botanical Decorators, Inc., the exterior of the property can be designed/developed as beautifully as the interior of the property, with all the above mentioned excellent professional design and project management capabilities.

I am a designer for a custom closet company. I have been working with Francisca Alonso of AV Architects on various projects since 2006. I love collaborating with her because she is extremely easy to work with and the projects always go very smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend Francisca Alonso and AV Architects. They do some amazing renovations and are a fantastic company to deal with.

Hakan was the project manager for our renovation. Each detail was explained thoroughly. I interviewed several home improvement companies in the northern Virginia area; none matched the knowledge of product information and costs of construction for completely renovating my kitchen. Architectural renditions were exact to specifications;no last-minute changes had to be made. Prior to the beginning of the renovation, costs and date of completion was discussed along with a time line dedicated to the selection of cabinets, floor, tiles, lighting fixtures etc. The crew assigned to my project were courteous, quick, clean and put materials away each day. I never had to worry about the rest of the house being a dust bowl or cleaning up foot prints. I would highly recommend Bull Run Kitchen and Bath.

We have used Winn Design on two different occasions. The first, in 2007, was a project to replace the exterior doors, windows, and siding of our 1969 ranch house. As part of the project, we added a natural wood portico to the front entrance. More than 5 years later we still have people stop to take pictures and ask us who has done the construction. In 2010 we contracted again with Winn to extend and completely remodel our kitchen. As this was our first experience with a project of this size, the design process was very daunting. However, Winn patiently worked with us over a few months through many revisions until we had a design that fit our needs and budget. During construction we went on vacation and the project manager sent us pictures and summaries on almost a daily basis so that we could keep up with the progress of the project. As the different trades came to the project we were impressed by the quality of the subcontractors Winn used. Several trades mentioned that Winn was one of their favorite companies to work with. Happy and skilled subcontractors are also key to a successful project! Renovations can be very intimidating and stressful on a marriage. We are very grateful that Winn, through their professionalism and quality of work, made the process as pleasant and successful as we might have hoped for. Now, with more than 2 years behind us, we know that we made the right choice to use them. There are many contractor horror stories out there, but you won’t have one with Winn.

Nick is a true professional! His attention to detail and eye for style is unmatched. His renovation of our home was done exactly the way he said.

A true professional and a very kind man as well.

In the past we used a design/build company and did not feel that we had control over the process or the budget. When we reviewed the bill we found the mark-up was excessive, especially when sub-contractors were used for most of the work. This time around we chose to use Chad with Arlington Construction Mangement because of the ability to control expenses, choose the products used in building our addition and select our own sub-contractors. The ability to get several estimates and meet the subs for each trade beforehand made a huge difference in our experience. We completed our project 2 months earlier than predicted and were able to stay within budget. We ended up saving 28% from our lowest bid and we were able to use upgraded products along the way. Chad gave us great advice, support and knowledge to help us through our project. I know we would not have received the same personal service from any other builder. We would use Chad again and would highly recommend him to anyone looking into building.

Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes
Design-Build Firms in Alexandria, VA
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 17, 2013
My wife and I selected Michael Nash from among five separate bids for a considerable renovation and expansion of our home. Michael Nash was the second lowest bidder, but our confidence in Sonny Nazemin’s eye for design and considerable number of award-winning designs was crucial in our initial selection. We have a grand house in Reston built in the late 1960s. It has solid bones but really needed a whole house renovation. We also needed more space to house our extended family. Our project consisted of a new two-car garage, siding, roofing and a totally new floor consisting of a master suite and bathroom. From the start of the project I was impressed with the one price upfront to complete the project. Sonny navigated our plans through the difficult process of approval by our local Design Review Board. His personal attention and negotiation with the board led to the rapid approval of our project. Follow on work for our front porch and driveway was reasonably priced. When we requested a re-design of the ceilings for the master suite, Sonny spared no expense hiring several architects to arrive at the design we desired. His vision throughout the project ensured its success. ******************* EXTRA FOLLOW-ON WORK COMPLETED jANUARY 25, 2014 *********************** We gave Michael Nash extra follow-on work with our kitchen because we were so pleased with how our Master Suite and other work turned out. We told Sonny that we had a limited budget but wanted to get as much of the kitchen done as possible. He suggested that we keep our old cabinets and redo everything else. Sonny has a great eye for design and suggested that we take out some cabinets to open up the room. He helped us with color choices that made the kitchen modern and bright. They replaced the oven, the hood, the induction cooktop, the counter, the floor, the sink, repaired and replaced doors, painted the room and put in a new lighting system with ten canned lights. Michael Nash kept to a timetable except for the hood at the end, which was really unavoidable. We are thrilled with our new kitchen and recommend Michael Nash to our neighbors and friends.
