This traditional home in Takoma Park, MD didn’t fit the needs or style of it’s creative and eclectic home owners. Merrick converted an old kitchenette on the 2nd floor into a new master bathroom and walk in closet. We opened up the tight staircase adding a modern iron stairway that is now the focal point of the home. Other design features included a stained concrete porch, corrugated metal siding and a charging station for an electric vehicle.

While Merrick hasn't yet begun the work (it should commence in June of 2013) we wanted to write a review of the design process that we began a year ago with Lindsay.

Lindsay is, with all sincerity, the sweetest, most honest, and most professional person we've ever encountered in the home improvement realm. We cannot imagine working with anyone else. In fact, my wife and I were so compelled to work with her we decided it would be a waste of time to get additional bids.

Lindsay has, over the course of the design process, taken every one of our unusual requests with patience and consistently found a way to make them work in order achieve the effect we're after. There was no curve ball she didn't crush and no email she didn't respond to and absorb. We've been blown away at her ability to track and integrate every single one of our off-handed requests and rapid-fire emails. She oozes a level of competence and attention to detail you just don't expect to encounter these days.

We strongly encourage anyone looking to work with a design-build firm to begin and end their search with Lindsay @ Merrick
