About this pro

We are a Design/Build firm providing "One Stop Shopping" – 3D Architectural / Structural Renderings, Interior Design Services, Landscape/Hardscape Designs, Plans and Permits for New Construction and Remodeling Projects---expertise in hillside and difficult lot.

Our team will focus our effort around (3) key areas during new construction or remodeling your existing home:

  • Comfort
  • Functional lay–out
  • Lower energy usage

We wouldn’t feel right building you a project that we know is going to cost you a lot of money over the long term. We are a quality builder and a firm believer of planning, organization and a skilled work force.

We have added another feature to all our new construction projects recently. In addition to the free installation of the water purification system in our new kitchens, we are installing an electric car charger in the garage and solar panel lines to the roof for future use at no charge.

This is all part of our goal as your builder to lower the energy usage as well as purifying the air and water inside our new homes & remodels.

I learned construction from my father and my daughter, Christine has joined our company. We are a third generation company and we love to build thoughtful projects for our clients and their families.

    I received a quick response and a clear and precise estimate. I really like Mike Ross and I look forward to working with him. I definitely plan on hiring Addition Building & Design. I'll post more afterwards.

  • Jean Hamilton

    Top notch tradesman, great project management personal and software. Mike has 3 decades of experience building new homes and major renovations-his insight, recommendations and problem solving ability are totally the BEST! Highly recommend and will absolutely hire Mike and his team again.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We like to spend our time on the first meeting. Ask questions, tour the home, get to know the clients needs, asses the property and find out what they can do according to the building codes, and then we design the space. We give the client conceptual drawings before the plans are drawn or construction starts. We like to have a solid plan before we begin any construction. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a masters in mathematics, every year my staff and I take design courses with ASID and we do weekly training on the latest and greatest construction products. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

We have very competitive pricing. We have been in business for a long time and base our pricing off of similar jobs we have done and also we get three quotes for parts of the jobs we subcontract out. Everyone we use on our jobs is licensed and insured. We get real numbers from reliable and high quality craftsmen. 


How did you get started in this business?

My father was a carpenter in my hometown in Ohio. My brothers and I helped him build our childhood home. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

Our clients at ABD have purchased their home and plan to stay there for 10 years or more. They are looking for a high quality job that lasts 50 years or more. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently remodeled a home for clients. They are expecting a baby this year. They loved their home remodel so much they hired us for both of their parents homes and they just referred us to very close friends of theirs.
