  • icon_1Our experience with Kinning Design Build was incredible. Throughout the building process they were committed to a standard of customer service that was above and beyond our expectations. Kinning Design Build breaks down every "construction stereotype." They promised and delivered on-budget and on-time construction without fail. The Kinnings have tremendous character and cling to standards of customer service that seem to be too often forgotten. Through the process we gained both a dream home and new friends! - Kurt & Da'Nelle Earl
  • icon_2Our experience with Kinning Design Build wasn't just satisfactory, it was exceptional! I have worked with contractors in the construction industry during my professional career and can say, unequivocally, that Mike, Mary, and Matt are top-notch. Not only were they receptive to our suggestions and thoughts regarding design and finish, they offered numerous ideas that we incorporated into our home that made it far better than we had ever hoped. Kinning Design Build is a very professional company; the owners have the experience, contacts, and work ethic to make the home-building experience what it was for us - a pleasant, rewarding, and exciting time in our lives. - Dave and Teri Watermeier
