Proudly serving the Greater Columbia area including Ellicott City, Silver Spring, Clarksville and nearby.
This 89-year-old home had an awkward front entry and the kitchen was outdated and too small. They were interested in numerous projects and updates. We listened to what the homeowners were hoping to accomplish and our design team worked closely with them to create amazing results.
Even though they had their kitchen remodeled fifteen years prior, they wanted more space and style. Using Norcraft cabinetry, Paradiso granite for countertops and tile flooring helped us reach our goal. An under-mount sink was installed and Kohler products were used. The new Pella windows add flare and allow abundant natural light. Our customers bought their own appliances and that helped with budgeting. While on vacation in Italy, they had purchased pendant light covers but we had to find fixtures to fit these covers. Now the lights are a perfect accent. We also needed a load-bearing solution but did not want a column right in the middle of the room. A complex beam system eliminated that problem.
The existing guest bath had a small bath with shower and a pedestal sink. Storage was non-existent. We were able to expand the square footage of this room to make it less cramped. The new guest bath now has a full-size bath, shower, an under-mount sink and a new vanity. The customer now has ample counter and cabinet space. Beautiful Travertine flooring was also installed.
The homeowners wished to enlarge their foyer. Whenever they had visitors, their 3 x 4 foyer landing was too crowded. With a step down to the main floor, it also was unsafe. We expanded their foyer area, installed slate flooring and built a much needed closet.
Our customers wanted a designated area for an office/work area but with the existing home, it was impossible. We suggested a two-story addition. The second-story would bump out their son’s bedroom and give him more space. The entire first floor would be the home office they dreamed of. The room is warm and inviting with Pella windows and Bruce Butterscotch hardwood flooring. To make this addition not so traditional and to add distinction, we suggested a turret-shaped structure.
To add “curb appeal” to the front of their home, we built a beautiful portico and front porch. A Provia cherry wood grain front door with leaded glass is a classy focal point. Our company did have to install a drywell system in the side yard to eliminate a runoff system in the yard.
The design and craftsmanship of this project is exceptional. With all the beautiful changes and upgrades, the value of this home has been enhanced. The homeowners are very happy and delighted with the exquisite transformation!

Our clients were looking to add on a new garage and playroom to their ranch style home two miles outside of Silver Spring. The dad is a repeat customer of ours from 15 years prior. He previously came to us needing a modest garage for his bachelor pad and loved the results. After getting married and starting a family, the couple decided it was time to upgrade to a larger home, perfect for an active family of four. This family once again came to Starcom Design Build to help with their renovation needs.
The family requested a large 28x34 two car garage, big enough to fit the family cars, kids toys, while also incorporating the electric recharging technology for dad's future Tesla purchase. The brick siding on the garage blended seamlessly into the homes existing brick exterior. The dark brown garage doors complimented the color of the front door. Connecting the garage to the rest of the home was easy with the addition of a small hallway that doubles as a mudroom.
Inside the home, mom requested a light airy playroom for the three and five year old and also an update for the kitchen. In the kitchen and playroom we were able to bring in more natural light using Pella windows, giving the space an open and inviting feel. In the kitchen we expanded out to make more room for storage and family cooking time. Our clients requested high quality granite countertops to replace their previous counters, and opted to reuse some of their existing cabinets to cut back on cost. The final result was a modern comfortable home that this family can continue to grow in, and the family referred our services to many of their neighbors.
