“Kate helped me with every aspect of designing my new home. It was a much bigger job than I imagined it would be, and Kate thought of things I never would have (until it was too late). She had great ideas, helped find efficiencies and was able to communicate well with the contractors. She listened to what I wanted, and was able to provide options to help me achieve everything I wanted. Huge time saver for me, and the end result is a home that I truly love. Highly recommend!’Sue Iggulson

“In the twenty years that I have been involved in the construction of over 650 semi-custom or custom homes and probably 200 remodels, I have had the pleasure to work with many qualified people to bring happiness to the clients. Kate Byers is one of those people.. I would and have referred her to clients that have had nothing but the greatest experience working with her firm.. From a general contractors side she makes my life a lot easier because of detailed and correctly dimension-ed drawings, low stress solution based decisions when problems arise, which we all know will happen with construction,and her ability to maintain a schedule with her designs so the projects can keep moving.. I would hire her firm to help me with any of my clients–from custom homes/remodels to commercial tenant improvement jobs. “— Contractor, Brent Hillman

I plan to hire her for my upcoming new construction project and in general highly recommend her work.”
