What Our Customers Say...


Avocet Design Build was nothing short of a joy to work with. Chris’ Crew, as our five year old called them, were hard working, considerate, talented individuals who helped us realize our dream outdoor living space.. Chris is thoughtful, responsive, and easy to work with, helping us shape our vision and making it a reality. Michele makes you feel like part of the family, checking in, sharing news letter updates, and even getting poolside gifts for our little ones when the deck was done. We were incredibly lucky to work with Avocet Design Build, and we would highly recommend them.

-Jennifer R.


Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, and Value are all key words that come to mind with the staff at Avocet Design Build.


Chris came to discuss the ideas we had for changing a window to French doors opening out to a beautiful, sturdy addition beyond, which didn’t exist yet. He listened.. really listened and sent a proposal with computer drawings of what they could do. I was thrilled and set a date. Michele was so easy to coordinate business issues with.

In March 2021, Chris and his crew installed the French doors (through brick wall) and built a beautiful, sturdy addition beyond our expectations. Our vision was brought to life and now we have a one of a kind deck that is just what we wanted

-Julie T.


My husband and I have used Avocet Design Build for for multiple renovation projects in our home and have been beyond pleased. Chris has always been available to talk about the project that is going on and has never made us feel that we were a problem when we called. We asked for a quote and Chris provided the quote in a timely matter and started the work when he said he would be there. He came out looked around, took measurements and provided us with ideas on the best way for us to achieve the look we wanted with our home. He and his crew are very conscientious and leave the work area cleaned up daily. We are continuing our home journey with Avocet Design Build because we believe the provide high quality work at reasonable rates. Thank you Chris, and all the members of the Avocet Design Build team!
