The house concept is everything Dave and I had envisioned, and the design was done by Ken at HomeStyling Design. HomeStyling Design and UBuildIt kept us on track so we were able to construct our new three-story home complete with an elevator in just seven months from ground breaking. Keeping design and construction together allowed me to have complete control of every step while I was my own administrator of my project.

We added a green two-story addition with a two-car garage below and an apartment above. Ken’s design revisions made everything tie together. With our new solar panels on our roof, our latest electric bill was only $14.18 for 377 kWh used in a month! That’s almost 1,000 kWh less than last year at the same time! We are also getting our Seattle City credit of $300 cash for the extra kWh we produced for the grid. Thanks to UBuildIt, the meter keeps whizzing backwards, and it’s still exciting to watch.

We are indeed happy clients. Ken designed an expansion of the whole two stories of the back of our house. We remodeled to an open-concept kitchen, got a much larger master suite, a new laundry addition, and a large glass covered patio. The subs and vendors UBuildIt connected us with were remarkably professional and great to work with while giving us contractor bids for everything. Saving thousands and getting what we wanted is what makes us happy. Thanks, Larry.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you at HomeStyling Design and UBuildIt for being there throughout this whole process. We raised our little house up and added a new main floor with a basement before setting our house back on top. We couldn’t have done it without you!

We only spent about five to 10 hours a week managing our project. The best part was watching it all come together with quality subs. It was a very rewarding experience. We would have never been able to afford our palace without having managed the project ourselves. We love knowing how it was all put together. We learned a lot and may build something else with HomeStyling Design and UBuildIt in the future!

We chose HomeStyling Design to take the age off of the street appeal of our house and design a new kitchen and grand entry. And we chose UBuildIt because we wanted to keep the cost down, as well as have access to experienced and reliable sub-contractors and suppliers. We’d heard about their great reputation and knew that with their guidance, we'd have the confidence to manage it ourselves. I was very impressed with how accurate the estimate was. They were so great at helping me track expenses and stay on schedule, and answered all of my questions and concerns. The communication with my consultant was excellent! There was always someone to pick up immediately on the other line or call back right away. They have an experienced, cohesive team and everyone I worked with was very customer-centric and had a great attitude.

HomeStyling Design put US into our new kitchen / family room addition: from tiny to entertainable! Besides this, we got a large covered patio. We had some general contractors quote us much higher or the same price for much less space and lesser materials than UBuildIt could get for us. We paid only actual costs without markup for everything! We liked the idea of being in control of our design and our project, as well as making it match a schedule that fit our lives — the best part about using HomeStyling Design and UBuildIt!

We think that our chemistry with them was vital to having successful projects. We chose HomeStyling Design and UBuildIt because we liked their philosophy of being a coach. We also liked the amount of construction experience they brought to the table. Not only did we add a partial additional third floor, but we completely remodeled the interior with two new kitchens, two new baths, and an elevator connecting all levels. With their help, we were able to make our dreams a reality at much lower costs!

We had a tiny niche of a kitchen with lots of unusual storage that divided the house in two. With five kids and lots of their friends, I was trapped in the kitchen and there was no place for everybody. So I asked Ken at HomeStyling Design to save my sanity. Between his creativity and the great cost savings we got with UBuildIt, you should see my “living” kitchen with seating for everyone. We can all look out at the view, eat, and do homework on my new working island. It has a nice second sink. I even have a walk-in pantry. I’m thrilled and amazed every day with the results!

For my desired ADU, I needed an experienced design firm and consultant to help get bids and ask questions I wouldn’t have thought of, and to make sure that I did things correctly. I’ve done several successful projects before, but I hadn’t done one this size, adding a two-story attached ADU. The team at HomeStyling Design and UBuildIt was very flexible with my aggressive timeline and referred quality sub-contractors. Their UBI consultant was especially helpful in reviewing my project and making recommendations at key junctures.
