509 Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms

When building a new house, people often turn to architects to kick off the project. However, a different model is becoming quite popular: design-build. Instead of dividing tasks between separate architecture and construction companies, you can hire a full-service Des Moines design-and-build company to complete your entire project, from initial sketches through final construction.

Featured Reviews for Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms

Sockeye Homes
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Jan 11, 2013
“A year ago they came out and gave up a really great quote on our idea for remodeling our home. They are very professional and even went as far as taking us to a few of their project homes to show us the quality of work and some past successes. We weren't able to move forward with the process but as soon as we can we will definitely be using Sockeye Home to assists us.”

CRD Design Build
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Jun 30, 2015
“We are very pleased with CRD’s basement renovation project. From design to completion, attention was paid to the important details that make such a project a success and stay within budget. Importantly, CRD and their skilled carpenter and subcontractors worked closely with us to translate our vision of the remodel into a warm and cozy basement living unit for our extended family. We highly recommended CRD and feel very fortunate to have worked with them on this and another earlier remodel project.”
Riddle Construction & Design
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Feb 12, 2013
“After much deliberation we chose Riddle Design and Construction. Our decision to choose them centered around their commitment to quality. We did not want any surprises and were not disappointed. Their knowledge of the current architectural style of our home and the builder eliminated any surprises. Our goal was to make our current kitchen a more efficient and inviting entertainment space while keeping with the traditional style of the home. Their design suggestions were accepted and we are very pleased with the final outcome.”
Urban Oasis Design & Construction LLC
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Apr 1, 2015
“I hired Urban Oasis to design a backyard garden and install new stairs and stonework. After a very enjoyable design consultation, Carrie presented three designs and I selected one with no reservations. I went with her to the nursery to pick out additional plants (she incorporated much of the existing garden.) Old raised beds were replaced with a bluestone patio, and a long flight of uneven concrete stairs leading to the house from the street were replaced with granite. All of the specialty stone work was done with exacting attention to detail. I have been delighted with the outdoor extension of my old Craftsman bungalow.”

Bakken Design Build
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Dec 1, 2014
“I worked with Bakken Design Build to build a new three-story (attic on the top floor) home and garage from an existing foundation (garage has new foundation poured). The owner, Joel, was insightful during the planning and design phases, taking the time to meet me and discuss any questions or requests I had. He had great ideas and was able to plan well, also having given advice on living areas that I would not have thought about. During construction, the Bakken Design Build staff were very friendly and helpful. There were no problems with me stopping by the project site to asking questions or just checking out the work. Design or material choices were always offered with dollar amounts, preventing surprises. Overall, this company was a pleasure to work with, taking the project from start to completion. I've been living in the home for several months now, and it's a lovely place to be. The design aesthetics often get complements from passerby's and neighbors.”

Feb 19, 2011
“Lee Edwards is an innovative professional. He possesses the ability to incorporate traditional design/build methods with contemporary style and materials. His strong knowledge with computer drafting is reflected in his efficiency and productivity. As a builder, I find his plans easy to read, and well thought out.”
Sheard Development LLC
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Oct 18, 2018
“First of all, Sheard Development completely saved us! We had started several months before they came on board with another contractor who let us down right after the foundation had been started.... Then we waited & waited for them to go onto the next stage which never happened. Basically the whole house was still unfinished and it sat for about 4 months before Sheard Development took over our project. They worked through many errors on the plans they inherited and the foundation that had already been started. I can’t say enough positive about this company, they made EVERYTHING right. They have integrity, the best work ethic, they put the customer first and love their imput. They completed our home in the most timely manner. I would recommend this company whole heartedly without hesitation!”
Maltom, Inc.
Des Moines, WA Design-Build Firms
Nov 16, 2015
“Our project is the Columbia City remodel. Maltom, Inc. is highly recommended. They are a design/build firm, but we had most of our design work already done and they were able to bring the design to reality. Tom Lakomski is the owner and he has done a wonderful job managing the project, keeping to an aggressive schedule, working within our budget, and communicating with us on almost a daily basis. The project permitting got started in early February (2015), we moved out in March, and we moved back in early August. The team and sub-contractors were timely, professional, clean, and the work is impeccable. Remodeling is a daunting experience, and there were countless decisions to make and materials and labor are so expensive. But Tom was an incredible resource, understanding our budget and working with us to build a sleek, modern (transitional style), high quality house that we will be able to enjoy for decades to come. We would highly recommend Maltom with no reservations, and you can expect to get high quality work within your budget with clear communication and adherence to schedule. I will note that my husband and I have been extremely organized and very focused and clear about our design, scope, and budget - and this style has worked very well with Maltom. We have had only a few change orders (Cat 6 in the house instead of cat 5/canned lights in basement/nest thermometer/tile shower in guest bath instead of tub). Although our contract specifies a 12% change order fee, Tom had told us that the fee would be waived if the changes were discussed in advance and did not impact schedule or cause major changes etc. We have found that to be the case for all of our change orders (that the fee was waived). At the beginning of the project, Tom created a shared google calendar with us for all of the stages (permitting/demo/foundation/electrical/HVAC etc.), and also gave us written weekly progress reports and an ongoing task list. Tom understands that we are building our dream house, and often had suggestions about not only the infrastructure, but material finishes, fixtures, and modern design ideas. For example, one week he asked us how we wanted the front of the house to look (we are doing hardie board siding), and suggested that in the gable area people often add a contrasting shingle or shake to add interest. We ended up going with cedar shakes due to his suggestion, but truthfully we would not have even thought about it until all the hardie board was up. Just one example out of many that we have worked through - since we have not been working with an architect, his suggestions and advice have been invaluable. We moved back in on schedule, and had a walk through beforehand with punch list items. Everything was taken care of, and Tom followed up with us the day after we moved back in to make sure everything was wonderful. He also said he would be doing a complimentary 30 day, 90 day, and one-year check-in (and we had already paid our full contract). We had an open house a month after we moved in, and Tom came before to take care of about 10 small touch up items on our punch list. (Maltom also sent us a beautiful flower arrangement, and champagne!) We had one major issue when we had our first heavy rain after the summer and the oven hood leaked. It was quite alarming but Tom came out the next day to fix it. I'm not sure how we got so lucky to have such a responsive, efficient, and quality contractor, but we achieved a major remodel (added ~800 s.f., 1.5 bathrooms, new electrical, siding, gourmet kitchen, etc.) in less than 5 months - on budget and is our dream house that is more than we hoped for.”
