Jackson Design Build

Sarah and Leif Jackson, founders of Jackson Remodeling LLC (now Jackson Design Build LLC), started the firm in Seattle in 1999 along with Leif's brother Erik.  The Jackson brothers have a combined twenty-two years experience in the remodeling industry, and both have business degrees from the University of Washington.

Both Leif and Erik have earned the designation of Certified Graduate Remodelor (CGR) by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The CGR designation is your assurance of our dedication to ongoing training and a commitment to ethical conduct.  In 2006, Jackson Design Build was included in Remodeling Magazine's Big 50, a list of the 50 best (not biggest) remodelers in the nation!

Today, the firm consists of a team of excellent individuals in the office and in the field, with Erik and Leif in charge of estimating and production management.

Our employees have chosen to make careers at Jackson Design Build because we treat them like the professionals they are, providing medical insurance, paid vacations and holidays, and a retirement plan. We foster a family environment, encouraging personal growth within the company and providing a rewarding work environment.

Our team is what makes us special. Our clients usually become friends with the carpenters assigned to their project. Though they are happy when the project is done, homeowners are often sad to see "their" carpenter move on. We take pride in our trade contractors (we don't call them "subs") as well, and have assembled a team of professionals who all uphold the same high standards.

Jackson Design Build has earned a reputation for doing quality work with a focus on honesty, reliability and service. We are the proud recipients of seven coveted REX awards for Remodeling EXcellence as well as three Merit awards. Our clients are happy to tell you about their "exceptional remodeling experience" with Jackson - call for references.

I was very impressed by how precisely you budgeted the projects; your estimations of time and materials needed were very accurate. Also I appreciated your timeliness in completing the projects when you said you would.

When one has finished building one's house, one suddenly realizes that in the process one has learned something that one really needed to know in the worst way - before one began.
