I started Denys Builds Designs to bring greater harmony to the design and build phases of renovation. Designers often have wonderful ideas, but they aren’t always practical or affordable. Likewise, a skilled builder may be very practical but lack the aesthetic sense of a designer. As both a master builder and an experienced, creative designer, I can give you the best of both worlds.
Successful design is the result of a cooperative process. All clients have their own needs, tastes and ideas. As a designer, my job is to create a collaborative, comfortable rapport wherein we can combine my skills and experience with your requirements to find the perfect design for you. Browse through the Gallery to see just some winning examples of this process.
To keep fully up-to-date with the latest styles and technologies I attend major North American trade shows such as the National Kitchen and Bath Show in Chicago and the Interior Design Show in Toronto every year.
As a third-generation skilled tradesman, I take great pride in the craftsmanship I bring to every single job. My clients benefit from construction techniques that have become quicker, cleaner and more accurate every year over the last two decades. For example, I use the latest dust-reducing power tools to keep your home clean and tidy.
I regularly participate in building science conferences and symposia to ensure that I am fully versed on the latest issues affecting home building and renovations. From roofing to foundations, from windows to floors, I can address any questions you may have, armed with the most up-to-date information.
I am committed to green building principles and donate harvested materials to Habitat for Humanity.
