What We Do

Full-Service Design/Build — Remodeling Homes and Landscapes:
AllenHallBathThumb

Braitman Design Studio specializes in remodeling and additions for Older Homes.  We work in Upper Northwest DC, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, and other close-in suburbs.  Often our projects include integrated interior and exterior remodeling for complete indoor-outdoor living.

We take projects from the idea stage through permitting and construction — with a single point of contact and full responsibility for quality, budget and schedule.

We specialize in solutions within the existing footprint of your home, when possible, or with modest additions that fully integrate with the existing home.

We offer turnkey solutions from design through permitting and construction.  We have no particular style but instead customize our clients home to their particular needs and tastes.  We take a holistic approach integrating architectural design, landscape design, interior design, and finishes, components, and furniture.

We act as Architectural Designer & General Contractor and are fully licensed and insured.  We subcontract all work to reliable, known, licensed building contractors.  We retain full responsibility and accountability but without a staff to keep busy, we aren’t trying to design to the specialties of our employees.  We can act quickly and flexibly to meet your needs.

Please see “Remodeling Process” for more information.

We separate design from construction and work in a collaborative way with our clients.  Our goal is not to build you a bigger box . . . but instead to make sure you existing home is the right home from you.  We have developed a process so that you’l have accurate budget projections BEFORE we start construction — there should be no surprises.

When schedules allow, we welcome small design projects and small home improvement projects in addition to our full service Design/Build Practice.

We also consult with homeowners across the country who want to design and manage the remodeling process themselves

  • We are in California and are buying a home. The only thing we don’t like is the kitchen….. it’s tiny. We are trying to figure out how to open it up without removing walls or spending a lot of money. Do you provide floor plan ideas, and if so, how much do you charge and what do you need as far as dimensions and photos? We have access to contractors, but we don’t even know where to start.

  • We live in a split level in Silver Spring and are running out of space with for kids (two teenagers). We are also considering consolidating households with parents and need advice on an addition. Can you help us or do you only work on existing floorplans?
