American Dream Design Build made such a difference in our remodeling. As we approached designing and changing our kitchen and laundry room, my husband and I had 2 totally different styles of approaching the work. My husband easily envisioned spaces, and I took longer to think about things and make sure it’s what I wanted. We met with Jim B. and designer Michelle T. and began planning. These meetings were productive, and they showed us options. The design process truly made the kitchen and laundry room exactly what we wanted and needed. Keith, was our lead contractor and he coordinated all of the workers on the job. He was meticulous about safety and making sure things were done well. He covered the flooring, counters, and the corners of the cabinets to protect them as they worked. Every morning he answered our questions and told us what would be done that day. The crew showed excellent workmanship. They were reliable and Keith showed up on site every day exactly when he told us he would. He coordinated all the work. He also treated the other workers with respect and collaborated well with each person. He made it a harmonious work site. In our remodel, we got what we asked for at the price we were quoted and the work was completed on the date we were given. Now when people walk into our kitchen and laundry room we hear expressions of, “Oh My Gosh these rooms are beautiful!” American Dream Design Build is a special business. They are a team and each person that works there is a member. They all want the work that they do to be excellent and it shows. You become a member of that team when you work with them. At the end of our project Michelle T and photographer Leah came out to take photos. It was a special visit and I was grateful to receive a USB with the before and after photos of our project. They made sure that we knew that if we had any questions we could always call and they would be there. We couldn’t be happier with this company and our remodel.

We had American Dream Design Build do a major remodel of our first floor, including the living/dining rooms, complete kitchen and family room. We also had them remove walls, relocate windows, back slider and install a new larger patio in the backyard. The entire process went extremely well. From the initial contact with Jim and him walking us through the process, it was exactly as described and professional from start to finish. We really appreciated all the design help we got from Amy and Madison. We went in without a clue where to start but they did a great job walking us through the process. Keith kept an orderly job site and tracked well the schedule while communicating with us through the process. The end result turned out even better than we had expected and was completed on time! The team was professional from start to finish and we would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

We have partnered with American Dream Design and Build on two major remodeling projects in our North- End Tacoma home. Both projects were near flawless in concept, design and construction. We fully endorse the ADDB step-wise approach to construction and the integrity it brings to the building process. The craftsmen and design staff for both projects were top-tier professionals who treated us with respect and civility.

American Dream does quality work at the highest level possible. If you want quality, expect to pay a little more. That is why I recommend American Dream. You will not be disappointed. If you like things to get finished quickly and on time then American Dream is the company to do business with.
American Dream completed house siding, two bathroom remodels, roofing, and one awesome back deck used for entertainment for me. The completed jobs added a lot of value to our home including a spa like experience to my Master Bathroom with body sprays in the shower.
Later on I called Jim from American Dream to fix my Commercial Property when a lady drove through my building. He came promptly and repaired a wall to better than original condition and finished the job quickly so that my tenants could reopen for business soon after the accident.
If you want it done on time at the highest quality, call American Dream.
American Dream Design Build gave us a beautiful updated kitchen. The process started in late 2014, discussing our needs and wants. They have a great show room, as we were able to pick out the quartz counter top, color and style of cabinets, flooring, lighting, sink, faucet and carpet for our front room. This project also included new windows in the kitchen, as well as dressing up the dinning room windows, removing the drop down ceiling in the kitchen and adding cam lighting and 3 pendants. The new laminate flooring was installed in the kitchen, dinning room, hall ways and enter way. At the start of the project, they had a notebook listing the various contractors, contact person and phone numbers, as well as a schedule outlining the project. The job started on time as well as was completed on time. The project was on target and on budget. American Dream Design Build has a great and caring crew. Thanks again, for the updated kitchen.
American dream completed a full re-model of our kitchen last summer. The project was very challenging because it was right in the middle of our home, and we had plenty of unique issues with leveling the walls, floor, even ceiling as it is over 100 years old and very out of plumb at this point. We also added some square footage and tied it into the older existing structure. Jim and his team were very competent right from the outset, and dealt with any challenges with obvious knowledge and experience. They did the full project with us, and their thorough up front design process, while overwhelming at first, absolutely pays off once the project is rolling, as most of the decisions are already made. We are very happy with our final product, and it's exactly what we tried to describe to them and they followed through. A couple things that impressed me most was, when our ceiling was opened up, and they noticed a few things that weren't right that had nothing to do with the kitchen or the project they were working on, but chose to take the time to fix them, without being asked, and without charging extra. They were also great about coming back months after the project for any issues (minor cracking in the caulk) and fixed it right away. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, and intend to use them when the time comes to build our custom home.
We had a wonderful experience working with Jim and his team. We knew what we had in mind for our Butler's Pantry project from the start. However, we still needed some design ideas and cabinet selection help to make it just right. We were on a tight schedule but Jim's team completed our project a little bit ahead of schedule and exactly on budget. Super easy to work with. I'd not hesitate to recommend their super work to anyone. By the way, their craftsmanship and execution was exceptional. I am an over expector and my wife and I could not have been more pleased. They did it right.
I'm now starting my third phase of remodeling. I looked around a lot initially to find just the right people to help me with the remodel project. Now, I'd have no one other than American Dream Design Build do the work for me. No matter what challenge I give them or the project presents they find just the right solution. They are entirely professional. Their work is without compare. The project is done on time. They stand behind everything that they do. I had a small problem six months after completion of a bathroom remodel and they came out, no questions asked, and fixed it. American Dream Design Build is my only remodel company.
My remodel project is now done. Everything is perfect. It is just how I hoped it would be. Even when the manufacturers were trying to put up road blocks American Dream Design Build made it happen. Even though I have run out of remodel projects (for now) American Dream Design Build remains my only remodel company. I cannot recommend them enough.
“They are the best! The quality of their work ins amazing! I love that every project they have done for us they are done on time or before!”
“We hired American Dream to design and remodel our kitchen and family room. The designer totally changed the layout of our kitchen. Our contractor updated us on the progress of the project and was available to answer questions. The flow is greatly improved and we have more usable counter space. They raised the ceiling in the kitchen to match the family room which makes the rooms feel larger as well. We are very happy with the result.”
“American Dream Design did an excellent job remodeling my bathroom. The end result of the remodel was “WOW” this looks fabulous! Jim uses the top of the line products and staff. Right from step one Jim walked me through the entire process, time, costs, etc. I couldn’t be happier. I am planning to have American Dream Design remodel my kitchen.”
“Jim Burbridge is an excellent contractor that you can trust. He pays close attention to detail, works to keep the subcontractors organized, and keeps the homeowner well informed of problems, progress, and changes. I highly recommend American Dream Design Build.”
Jim, and everyone at American Dream Design Build has been awesome to work with. From the initial meeting, we knew this was the company we wanted to work with. Their professionalism and attention to detail is top notch! They took all the headaches and questions out of our home addition and remodel. They kept us informed every step of the way. We couldn’t have been more thrilled with the end result.
