Lead Designer and General Contractor

Carrigan believes that the best homes are not only reflections of the people who inhabit them, but also the support system that keeps the residents well adjusted and happy. And, when the dust is all cleaned up and the house is handed back to its owners, well-satisfied clients all certainly agree she does just that.

Working with Carrigan not only accomplished everything I had wanted and in a most professional manner, but it was fun and exciting. She is exceptionally detail oriented. She is on time!! She saved me money. She had respect for me as a client, and listened to my ideas.

I was just walking around admiring the house, which we have plenty of time to do these days. And thought of all the little touches you added and big miracles you pulled off. And Karl’s talents on the moulding in the front hall (and everywhere). And . . . the whole team you assembled. The leaded window you and Therese designed for the screened porch. The little arch over the dining room buffet that matches all the others. And that dining room buffet that looks original to the house. And on and on.


Carrigan has transformed our lives, not once but twice. First, she re-envisioned our master bath and closet into a highly functional, elegant sanctuary, while upgrading a second floor library and office, all of which look brand new ten years later. Most impressive, she recently brought our kitchen and first floor into the 21st century, through a brilliant vision that honored the home’s history but created a far more natural flow, functionality and breathtaking sight lines. Her design and building skills are unparalleled and she is masterful at staying on schedule.


We have had Ms. Curtis undertake major projects on our house several times. She worked on a major addition to the house; she did gut rehabs of two bathrooms, and she bumped out a living room wall and put in a gorgeous bay window. Also, she did lots of interior design consulting for us. Her work has been excellent in every way. She is absolutely a person of her word, she has followed through with every last detail on every job. Her aesthetic sense is fabulous. I have referred her to many of my friends. At least three families who I am close friends with have contracted with Ms. Curtis to do major work on their houses, and all have been thrilled with her work. We almost have a fan club!!


. . . I am a fan!! Relief is spelled Carrigan Curtis . . .


I wanted to thank you again for the “emergency color consultation” that you did for me that snowy December day . . . The apartment looks beautiful. I get many compliments on the colors.

Jean & Todd

The kitchen is fabulous – and exceeded our expectations. We really enjoyed working with you throughout the process and appreciated all your ideas, efforts, and patience.

After the job is beautifully done, Carrigan remains in the relationship to follow up on concerns and to make sure that everything remains at the highest quality. We recommend Carrigan to friends and colleagues for her remarkable abilities and her professionalism.


She’s an invaluable homeowner’s recource because she’s fluent in both languages, that of a designer and that of a builder . . . this fluency enables her to move easily between those two worlds – so that the expertly crafted and the beautifully designed produce a unified outcome for her clients.


Thank you so much for providing such effective help to my dear friends. They are so grateful, and so am I. It is really a blessing to have you in our lives.

Leslie & Siobhan

Our experience working with Carrigan was exceptional! . . . We had what can only be described as the perfect experience . . . We never thought that renovating our house would be so much fun!


Holistic building & design techniques for healthy and harmonious homes.

Environmental Illness is on the rise. According to the EPA 65% of our buildings are polluted with sometimes as much as 6 to 10 times higher levels of pollution that outdoor city air. Most Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors. Wouldn’t you rather live in an indoor sanctuary instead of a toxic battlefield for your body?

From Living With Mold to Living Healthy

The problem started for this home when, a few years earlier, the lake the property sits next to rose to higher-than-normal levels and flooded many surrounding properties. The house had floodwaters right up to sandbags for two weeks straight, which were two to three feet above their floor level. The house had no basement, just a combination of an inaccessible dirt crawlspace and a ground level porch that had been covered and sealed up in a previous remodel, creating another inaccessible crawlspace.
