We had a great experience working with Alpine Design Custom Homes. Sean guided us to realize our visions of a custom home while bringing experience and knowledge to the design process, all while keeping our wants and budget in mind. Sean designed our home with us, not for us!

Sean is a talented designer and was a pleasure to work with.  He was able to balance our vision with the realities of our small space.  The blend of his style and understanding ours led to our beautiful, unique lake house.

We were given the opportunity to purchase a home in the perfect neighborhood. The house was too small for our family, but the lot was big enough to accommodate an addition. We had an idea of what our current needs were and what our future home needs would be in the event we retired in the home. We gave Sean a sketch of a layout and described what we wanted and he was able to create a set of plans that met every need and want. As it turns out there were some foundation surprises that we had to work through that required some out of the box thinking to overcome. All of this was handled superbly. We had many revisions to the plans and all were handled promptly and professionally. We have never built before and we were our own general contractor and Sean was able to help us through every part of the process. In total we put a 1000 sq ft addition over a new full basement, and added a 1000 sq ft attached garage. The feedback from everyone from the excavator, builder, plumber, and inspectors have all been positive as to the layout and construction of the project. We are drywalling now and looking forward to moving in.

I worked with Sean to design my exercise studio in Birmingham, MI. To say he is wonderful at what he does is an understatement. The entire experience blew my expectations away.... And I have high expectations.  Sean listened carefully to my vision and then he went to work. He consulted me on most everything but also took initiative so I did not have to think about every little detail.   When I had concerns, he addressed them calmly and professionally.  Best of all? My space is beautiful and clients are regularly "wowed."

We worked with Alpine Design Custom Homes to design our home in Southeastern Michigan.  From the beginning, we knew we were in good hands..  Despite the distance, Sean was willing to meet us at our property, so he could offer more aesthetic guidance rather than just using the site survey as his guide.  We came to him with a hand drawn sketch of the layout we were hoping for, and Sean made it a reality.  We found him to be knowledgeable, conscientious, and just a really nice person to work with.  My husband and I began the arrangement with high expectations, and Sean absolutely met and exceeded them.
