Drake House Construction & Design assisted us in transforming our main floor. Nancy and Kyle worked with us to design an open-floor plan. Beforehand our kitchen was small and separated from our family room and dining room. With the design from Drake House Construction & Design, we now have a beautiful open main-floor that allows our family to spend more time together. Not only is our floor plan open, but we were able to get the kitchen of our dreams. Nancy’s style and design choices for the finishings of the space truly put our kitchen space over the top. We couldn’t be happier with the end result of our renovation.
We talked with Kyle and Nancy Drake two years ago and decided to delay the project at that time. We called back this year and restarted the project. We did go over every detail again to make sure everything looked correct and the quoting and initial design phase was easy and straight forward. The actual design phase where we picked all of the details including cabinets, countertops, colors, etc. was much easier than I expected. They had plenty of options to pick from and the plan was in place in short order. The work started on time and the Drake House team were good communicators. We did have several items we wanted changed or adjusted slightly and the team was quick to respond and work on those action items. The project took slightly longer than the 8 week estimate, but some of these items were due to scheduling issues with inspectors. Ultimately the renovations looks great and we are very happy with the work. It has been about one month since completion and we’ve had no issues. I would recommend working with Drake House Construction & Design and their team
Nancy, Kyle and their team were fantastic to work with. Not only did they have great design ideas and cost-conscious fashion but they started on time and finished much earlier than we anticipated. Their team was respectful of our home and children, showed up on time, cleaned up every day, and overall ran a tight ship. For this main floor and kitchen renovation, we wanted a more conservative/traditional look and they helped us achieve this while offering some more on-trend choices that we are ultimately glad we selected. Any small hurdles or issues were acknowledged and addressed in a very timely manner. I’m confident we will be reaching out on more projects in the near future, thank you!
Kyle did a beautiful job on our kitchen renovation, which included taking out a wall and refinishing hard wood floors. While the project took a bit longer than expected, he came right in at budget which is the most important part to me!
We first met Kyle and Nancy of Drake House Construction in March 2018, very soon after closing on our new home, a 1933 Tudor, in the Ridgedale Park neighborhood in Buckhead. We found them through Houzz and were very impressed by their tasteful, yet budget-friendly renovations. When we met them in person, we knew we had found the right team to help turn our dream kitchen into a reality.
Having flipped our previous home in Denver, CO, we had a good idea of what we were looking for in our renovation. Having a personal passion for interior design and my husband, Andrew, being in commercial real estate, we were tough clients with high expectations on a tight timeline. We were looking to breathe new life into our historic home, but keep the old-world charm and timeless look of the rest of the house. We chose a blend of classic finishes, such as honed Carrara marble counters, white subway tile, brass fixtures, and stainless appliances, but with tasteful, modern touches, like hanging shelves and light greige cabinets. We were also working within a more segmented and challenging space. We would be taking a wall down in between our kitchen and dining room, as well as a breakfast bar, removing a radiator, and adding a new window to create more light and a more open, airy space.
Kyle and Nancy immediately understood our goals both from a look and feel perspective, as well as from a budget perspective. Nancy was very helpful locating specific design elements, like paint colors, light fixtures, and tiles, and Kyle was the construction lead behind adding the custom touches that really made our project shine. We threw Kyle and Nancy several curve balls and last minute change orders with requests for a custom island design and hanging brass shelves. Kyle and his team were incredibly resourceful and figured out a way to make them happen, creating a high-end look for a fraction of the price. We were also very impressed with Kyle’s team’s craftsmanship. They did an excellent job matching the walls of the new opening in between our kitchen and dining room to our existing, textured plaster walls, making it look like it was there all along. We greatly appreciated Kyle and Nancy’s ability to finish the project within a very aggressive timeframe within just six weeks, which greatly helped expedite our move in. Our kitchen is our new favorite room in our home and is everything we dreamed of for our growing family. Thank you, Kyle and Nancy!
We can’t wait to work with Drake House again for the next phases of our remodel – a master suite and basement renovation!
