When it came time for some serious overdue window and siding replacement, along with general repair projects on our home of the last 35 years, we had Balsam Design Build help us resolve what needed to be done, confirm construction details and a plan, then perform the work, from demolition through completion.

After a transparent process without surprises, we could not be happier with the results, with Skylar and Melissa keeping us informed of schedule and progress, discussing any changes in plans and needs, respecting our property, and ensuring our satisfaction with the job. As a bonus, their team included talented specialists who resolved several long-standing leaks and other issues with our home.  We offer our highest endorsement of their integrity and work.

When we purchased our 1930’s home, we knew that it would need some work. What we didn’t realize is that it needed a lot of TLC. We learned about Balsam Design Build from two friends who had exceptional work done by them on their home remodels.

Skylar and Melissa came to the rescue to help us identify the scope of our project and how to best manage it in phases which could work for our budget and lifestyle. They were patient and skilled in their communication with us as we were overwhelmed and inexperienced with some of the deeper work our home needed.

Skylar is a master craftsman and puts his personal touches on perfecting edges, angles and balance on our sloping home. The transformations including a complete remodel of the lower level, addition of two 10-foot double slider doors, 2 glass french doors, and expansive deck are all incredible and Pinterest worthy! The finished product was 100% worth the investment. So many people who visit our home compliment the restoration work and ask for his number. We look forward to future projects with them.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend Balsam Design Build. I worked with Skylar McGee & his team in designing & building an ADU unit on my property & have nothing but praise for their attention to detail, courteous & respectful approach with me and my property, & a finished product that exceeded my dreams. My ADU has been rented consistently since the job closed & I receive many compliments on the efficient use of space & the tranquility of the unit.

Words simply cannot express the level of appreciation and gratitude we feel for the passion and dedication the Balsam Design Build team had as they completely transformed an old garage into the dream Mother-in-law unit!

It is a leap of faith to trust one of your closest friends and her husband to work side by side with you to build your vision on budget, on schedule, and with attention to quality. Melissa and Skylar exceeded our expectations, and we consider them one of our trusted partners for our next project!

Balsam executed the major remodel work on my home to very high-quality craftsmanship standards and with true attention to detail. I really appreciated Skylar’s transparency, collaborative spirit, integrity, and patience. I felt that Balsam was as invested in the project as I was and wanted to be proud of the work they did. Looking forward to working with them again!

Working with Balsam Design Build was a dream! Skylar and his subcontractors were friendly, thoughtful, and efficient. The work was meticulously and beautifully executed. Communication with Melissa about ordering details and scheduling was clear and streamlined. They offered expert advice when we needed it, listened to our questions when they arose, and created an absolutely beautiful new home office for us. We could not be happier with our new, and very much improved, space!
