Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
The Lee W. Robinson Company
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"Terrific work. While I'm not the type that often goes for fancy design, I appreciate the new look given to my abode. I would use The Lee W. Robinson Company in the future."
- Troy Anderson
Graham Design and Construction
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"This spring I hired Graham Design and Construction to renovate an enclosed porch with outdated windows. Sam was respectful of my ideas and how I wanted the new screened porch to look. The work was done in a professional and friendly manner. Trent was always very precise and neat in his work. The porch turned out exactly how I envisioned. It looks great and now we use it all the time."

Michael O'Dea, Builder
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"My husband and I worked with Michael O'Dea in 2001 to build our first home in the Forest Springs North subdivision in Louisville, KY. Michael accommodated our requests to make changes in the semi-custom that was already being built at the time of purchase. He has a keen eye for details which impressed us - For example, the color of the vinyl on the back side of the house did not match the color of the trim exactly and he made the crew redo the work. (Honestly, I'm not sure I would have even caught that but knowing that our builder did and made it right before we questioned it, assured us that we found the right builder.)"

Michael Cadden • Kiel Thomson Company
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"I first met Michael about 10 years ago. I collaborated with him on a couple kitchens and was really blown away by his skills in the industry. Michael has a great knowledge of architectural designs and knows how to incorporate his vision with his clients needs to create phenomenal spaces both inside the home, outside the home or the home its self. I would recommend Michael and Promaster contracting to anyone that fears the process of selecting the right Design/Build firm. Promaster takes all those fears away."

Bryce Biery Construction
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"My first contact with Bryce Biery Construction came upon the recommendation of a window restorer. He assured me Biery Construction was one of the best in the business and I'm delighted to say that no truer words have ever been spoken. The decorative wood trim on my 35 year old Tudor style home was slowly deteriorating not to mention the moisture that was eating away at parts of the synthetic stucco. Bryce immediately determined that aluminum 'flashing' was needed where the stucco met the brick. He also suggested using Windsor boards to replace the trim which has a lifetime warranty. The newly installed trim really freshened up the exterior and looks original to the house while the aluminum flashing has eliminated my water issues. Bryce also enlarged two single casement windows to double casements and again, they look original to the home. Finally, his clean up is absolutely meticulous. I've never seen a stray nail, sawdust, or any other evidence that a work crew has been at my home. I look forward to a long professional relationship with Bryce Biery Construction. The guy absolutely knows his stuff. Compared to other contractors I've dealt with, he is an expert in all areas of home construction and repair. It is with pleasure that I HIGHLY recommend Bryce Biery Construction for any and all home improvement needs."
- ALICIA SMILEY
Details Consulting Group
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"Details built my custom home and worked with me methodically over an approximate 9 month period from beginning to end to design and build a beautiful home. The builder was knowledgable and, as a trained engineer, he was able to suggest, design and build changes that were architecturally stunning and structurally solid. Costs were clear and up front. I would work with Details again in a heartbeat."
- T Taylor
Prodigy Hardwood Interiors
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"Quality is the best term I can use for Prodigy Hardwood Interiors. I have always wanted genuine hardwood flooring in my house. When I went to the big home improvement store I would find that the sales people could barely tell me the difference between true hardwood and fake laminate. After a dedicated search I found Prodigy. From the get go I was highly impressed by their knowledge of all of the different hardwoods available. The courtesy was first rate and the suggestions offered were explained to me in a way that I could understand so I could make an educated decision on what would be best for my home and family. At that point I knew I was working with real professionals. But that's when I got a little nervous because we were on a pretty tight budget and this sounded like one of those to good to be true situations. Then I was surprised to find that they offer a whole range of products from $3 per square foot to $30 per square foot. They installed exactly the flooring (Brazilian Walnut) I wanted and did it under our budget. Prodigy is the real deal and I would and will recommend them to any one needing a high quality job done right. My sincere thank you Prodigy!"

Castlebuilt Homes
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"My name is Brad Dowell and I own Time to clean, a new construction cleaning company, I've been doing Brian's work for over ten years. I work for over fifty builders and Castlebuilt is in my top five builders in my opinion. He detail and home design is so different than other builders. He seems to have a knack for being right on with his homeowners. Brian is very easy to talk with and takes his time in explaining and going over each step with what he wants in a scope of work. I will say one key item about Brian, he's hands on with his homes. He is always on the job and that's important as a perspective home buyer. I would recommend Castlebuilt homes to anyone wanting a beautiful home built the right way."

Prestige Builders Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Louisville, KY
"Prestige Builders is a honest, highly reliable family business. They built my primary residence per contact to the highest specs, quality, and workmanship.They used top-grade materials and fixtures that other contractors we considered, would would have been up-charges. There were no surprises, most overages were known up-front and others were due to the lay of the lot which we had purchsed separately. I highly recommend Prestige Builders and would not hesitate using them again in the future."

What is a design-build firm?


Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors and construction companies, all under one roof. These full-service firms focus on a streamlined design-build process — from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction — in the hope of creating an efficient experience for both the client and the company. Because the entire project is happening within one company, Louisville design-build firms are able to overlap the design and construction phases of the project, which often speeds up the project significantly. In addition, these firms work to minimize risks for the project owner through single-point responsibility contracts. However, depending on the firm, you may still want to contact an interior designer or architect to help create the exact look you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design-build firms: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Before deciding on a residential design-and-build company in Louisville, KY, think about what you want from your new home. Do you want a large kitchen for entertaining? Do you need several bedrooms for children and guests? Do you want a finished basement for extra space or storage? Look for Louisville design-builders that specialize in the areas you're looking for. Budget is obviously a determining factor in the outcome of your project. To make sure you stay within your means, consider making a must-have list and a wish list. Gauge where the estimates are falling to determine which design-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.

  • How long have you been in the design-build construction business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Who is your designer, and what are his or her qualifications?

  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
