We had been searching for a design-build team that was led by a woman or a person of color, and were excited to come across Maughan Design and Remodel owned and operated by Kathie Maughan. Our first meeting with Kathie went great. She explained her company's philosophy and the process to go from ideas to finished home. When we shared with her our budget she said we might be a bit ambitious in our project scope, but that she and her team would be willing to help us prioritize our work help us create a beautiful home. This exactly what we needed to hear since neither of us had ever remodeled most of a home before. Kathie, Lancea and Daryl were fabulous throughout the process. Kathie and Lancea presented us with fun, bold, quality choices for our remodel while being respectful of our budget. They were great at suggesting places where we might want to splurge, and areas where being more practical made sense. They came up with interesting ideas about how to design the space and deal with structural challenges. For example, a radon mitigation exhaust pipe in our living room that Maughan Design hid under a beautiful, functional bench with storage. When we encountered challenges regarding unexpected costs, or a tile choice we decided against after installation, Maughan Design proved to be proactive problem-solvers with creative insights on how to address the issues. They were communicative throughout the process, answered questions as they arose and were willing to make adjustments through project completion. When our remodel was done we moved into a beautiful home. As we have settled in, we have noticed the little details that show the amazing craftsmanship, attention to detail and personal investment they all made in our home. We loved working with Maughan Design and would hire Kathie, Lancea, and Daryl again, without a doubt. If you want a team that values communication, high quality work, thinking creatively and truly honoring the home owners sense of style we would absolutely recommend Maughan Design!
