Let's get started...
We have several service options to better serve YOUR NEEDS. Read below for more information and then get the party started with your free Discovery Call. 


discovery call 

No matter which design plan you choose, every process begins with a complimentary Discovery Call.
This phone call is 10-15 minutes in length and simply allows us to chat more about your needs and how we can help. Don’t feel like you have to bring every detail to us, it’s just have an informal conversation about your potential project and what you generally have in mind. We will also discuss out service offerings with you to decide which could be a fit. No obligation, no stress..

Step 1

"John McClain Design tackled my entire house, from top to bottom. My house was a cookie-cutter 1980's suburban house, with little cohesion or style. My house now has life and personality. You cannot go wrong with this team, I truly believe John McClain Design is the absolute best in the business."

"my house now has life& personality"

"John and his staff are wonderful! I hired them to refresh my last home to improve chances of selling. I got a contract on it right away. Now I’m working with John to remodel the home I hope to purchase."

"John and his staff are wonderful"

"The team at John McClain Design worked with my family on our large scale home renovation. We purchased a home that was dated but had great potential. John and his team were able to showcase the best parts of our home while also redesigning spaces to speak to us aesthetically."

"showcase the best parts of our home"

"John McClain and his entire team are hands down the best in the business. As a real estate professional myself, I have renovated countless homes. His team made the entire process from beginning to end absolutely seamless and flawless. As any renovation, the project became larger than expected and we couldn't be happier."
