Your Hands-On Professional Craftsman
@designREMODEL offers a full-service professional remodeling experience. We provide design services, perform demolition, and make structural changes when necessary – and our remodeling and installation process always includes a complete clean up at the end of the day.
Sometimes homeowners express concern for @designREMODEL’s smaller operation and lack of a fancy showroom like other remodeling firms here on Cape Cod, but this is actually to their benefit. Our choice to carry less overhead allows homeowners to receive a bigger bang for their remodeling dollar. Likewise, clients find it much more convenient for us to bring catalogs or samples to them – where they can see how their selections will work in their home. Naturally, if you want to visit a showroom, we’ll be happy to accompany you.
Meet the Team
Choosing a smaller remodeling company doesn’t mean you must sacrifice expertise. We bring a loyal team of trade partners to your project, including licensed plumbers, electricians, and specialty contractors such as painters and tile setters. Rest assured, there is a small yet trusted group of professional craftsmen working together to remodel your home to your complete satisfaction.
John Clark, Owner
John’s always been drawn to the feel and aroma of wood. He started working in the shop of a local builder here on Cape Cod at the young age of 11 – and thus began his love for carpentry and creating with his skillful hands. One of the most rewarding experiences for John is to stand back at the end of a long, hard-working day and see tangible results of his efforts.
John also has extensive design experience that is shaped, sharpened and improved when he labors to bring his design to life. This is a huge advantage over many designers who only use a computer as their primary tool. For John, every detail counts whether its the proper reveal on a door or a creating symmetry with lighting fixtures and wall cabinets.
When he’s not remodeling to improve the enjoyment his clients get from their homes, he can be found taking relaxing trips to Cape Cod beaches with his wife, Tara, and daughter, Katiebeth. He also can be found supporting the local community such as the Cape Cod Children’s Museum, Christ the King Parish, Falmouth Christmas Parade and the Cotuit Center for the Arts. John is also a new supporter/advocate for the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod.

He is grateful for all of his customers, takes pride in his work and enjoys meeting good people.
