"Dennis and DF Design were great to work with from start to finish! We initially called DF Design to help with choosing an exterior siding color for an addition that would match the existing roof and brick, but Dennis was so great and helpful that we also used him to help with all interior paint colors and redesign our interior first floor. Dennis made sure he always provided options within our budget and we could not be happier with the finished product! Thank you Dennis and DF Design."

"DF Design recently completed a kitchen and entryway renovation for our family and the result is absolutely amazing! Dennis and Chris stayed within budget and they exceeded our expectations relative to design elements and quality. The construction crew was always polite, on time, clean and communicative. Any challenges we encountered were handled professionally by Dennis and Chris. We are so thrilled with their work and with our updated home!"
