Salem, OR 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.

Comfort Homes LLC
Design-Build Firms in Salem, OR
"It has been a privilege working with Andre' at Comfort Homes! From the very begining of taking my ideas for a home and putting them into plans and drawings, to working within my budget has been easy and stress free!! What some builders consider 'upgrades' are standard for a Comfort Home! Andre' keeps in touch on a regular basis either by phone, text or email to let me know what the progress is or the next step in the construction process. I live close to my new home and stop by almost daily - the job site is always clean and tidy as is the interior part of my home!! It has been so fun for my family to be on this journey to owning a home built by COMFORT HOMES!!!! I would enourage anyone to meet with Andre' who may be considering building a new home!!!"

Henderer Design + Build
Design-Build Firms in Salem, OR
"We have done 3 remodeling projects with Henderer Design + Build. The first one was a major remodel from roof to lower level, including the kitchen, changing wall locations, just about everything. It was finished on time, beautifully done, by workers who were a pleasure to have in our home - daily for 3+ months. Our first experience was so excellent, that we chose Henderer again to remodel the upstairs bathroom - it's gorgeous and very functional. On each remodel, Mary Turney was outstanding in helping us find the right colors, tile, etc. - we'd still be trying to figure that out if she hadn't encouraged us along the way. So for our third remodel Henderer added on an entryway to our home, and coordinated fencing, concrete and stonework leading up to the house and on the driveway. It changes the whole impression of our home! I cannot recommend them highly enough."

BC Custom Construction
Design-Build Firms in Salem, OR
"BC Custom Construction is the place to go if you want an amazing, quality, and beautifully built home. BC Custom worked with us before we even found our final property to build on. When we did BC Custom walked through all the aspects of what to expect and exactly what we needed to do. We had many concerns in areas we knew nothing about and BC truly helped us by explanation and/or by being hands on and also by being very understanding. BC Custom was also supportive of our wants/needs from the beginning and even after the build. BC Custom is always available and always willing to do what ever it takes to go above and beyond. BC treats us like family. We ended up with a beautiful new custom home that we are happy to call our own and live in forever. I absolutely would recommend BC Custom Construction to anyone who wants an amazing home to have for a life time. Bill Winkenbach and Scott Bowles are two outstanding people to work with and we are glad to have met them. Thanks for all your hard work, The Kramers"

Design team covered range of expertise necessary for the job. Excellent management of the building phase. Workers well coordinated to keep job moving forward. Adhered closely to time line and budget."

Westlake Development Group, LLC
Design-Build Firms in Salem, OR
"We have had the great pleasure of working on a number of homes with Gerald and the team at Westlake Development. They have set a high standard of excellence with maintaining communication between the designers and subcontractors and clients to make sure the project runs smoothly and on-schedule, but ultimately it's their dedication to satisfying the needs of the homeowner that sets Westlake apart. We were recently a part of the 'American Dream' home for the Northwest Natural Street of Dreams. Their involvement with the BBAC and the 'made in america' method of building has truly set them apart and we are excited for what the future holds as they go about bringing manufacturing back to the US."
- MW Design Workshop
The Remodel Group
Design-Build Firms in Salem, OR
"I've seen a couple remodels by The Remodel Group. What struck me beyond the beauty and transformation was the attention to detail in hardware, craftmanship, not to mention the creativity. They are aware of new technology and use it, ie moving stove vents, shelving for appliances that lifts up and pulls out, solid, flexible hinges, etc. They show integrity and respect toward the client. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for any needs you have."

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, Salem 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 Salem, OR, 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 Salem 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.

Questions to ask a prospective Salem design-builder:


  • 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?
  • Are your employees licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
