Judith’s Basement

A Colorado transplant, Judith fell in love with the historic charm of her new Bethesda brick colonial upon arrival to the DMV area. Judith brought with her an eclectic style, with a touch of whimsy. She loves mixing old and new, adding in color, and ensuring functionality. Like many homes in the area, the original […]

Anne’s Primary Suite Addition

This enchanting home, originally built 100 years ago, is set back from the road and entirely hidden by trees. Although tiny, all 900 square feet were full of charm so the homeowners were set on building an addition rather than tear down and start from scratch. Enter Merrick Design and Build! With the goal of […]

Jarid’s Whole Home Remodel

A kitchen renovation by Merrick Design & Build.

A family heirloom, this 1920s arts and crafts style bungalow has been passed down from generation to generation in Jarid’s family. When he contacted Merrick, Jarid made sure we understood it was essential to him that we update his home without destroying the character he grew up loving. Other issues that needed to be addressed […]

Beth’s Tiny Kitchen

Beth loved everything about her Kensington 1930s brick colonial except for it’s teeny, tiny kitchen. It was dark, hard to clean, lacked storage, and counter space making it difficult for even one cook to use. So she called in Merrick to design her a more functional, bright space. We made the kitchen space larger by […]

Judith’s Kitchen Addition

In need of a larger kitchen, Judith contacted Merrick to build an addition. She wanted her Westgate home to have the charm of 1940s homes, but still feel fresh, and be bolstered with all the modern conveniences. This addition gave us space for a generous work triangle, an island, a small powder room, and even […]

Liz’s Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade

Surprisingly, Liz already liked her warm mid-century kitchen, especially loving how it opened up to the dining room. But despite liking it, she knew it could be better. The layout was not the most functional, especially with the fridge location being so far from everything else. And the cabinets were starting to feel less like […]

Tracy’s Bathroom Remodels

Tired of the original 1990s build-grade bathrooms in her North Potomac home, Tracy came to Merrick with the intent of remodeling for home resale. All four of her bathrooms were included in the project: the primary bathroom, a guest en suite, a Jack and Jill, and a basement bathroom. Tracy’s bathrooms are now home to […]

Sylvia’s Bathroom Remodels

Sylvia, and her husband Richard, are long-time Merrick clients. When they approached us about remodeling their hall bathroom (original to their 1930 Forest Hills home), we couldn’t wait to get started! The goal was to create an inviting space, something both the homeowners and any guests could enjoy. In order to make the space function […]

Daisy’s Primary Bath

Out with the old and in with the … rusty? Having worked with us on a previous remodel, Daisy trusted us to take her 1980s New Mark Commons primary bath from drab to glam. She wanted an industrial vibe and a slipper tub with a view out the window, and mostly she wanted a shower […]

Scot & Metri’s Porch & Patio

Scot & Metri had worked with Merrick previously, so when they purchased this new home in Spring Valley just prior to lockdown in 2020, they already had a contractor they knew they enjoyed working with. Scot started dreaming about a new outdoor escape at a time when we couldn’t leave our homes. When it came […]

Sandy’s Addition

Sandy and her family were feeling cramped in their traditional Silver Spring brick colonial. They loved their home but needed more space to gather as a family. They came to Merrick for a living room addition, and their wish list was far from basic. Sandy wanted to incorporate dramatic design details that would create a […]
