Lauren S.

We loved working with Habitar Design. We contacted them to help us plan for a big renovation that reconfigured our entire kitchen and dining floor plans and brought new life into our full main living space. We were really pleased with the entire process. Our designer, Heather, did a great job figuring out what we were looking to have done and helped us narrow down exactly what we wanted. After the initial consultation she immediately "got" our aesthetic and all of her ideas and the options she gave us to choose from were great. She truly designed the kitchen of our dreams. And she did a great job of walking us through the design and construction processes so we felt at ease signing up for a big construction project with their sister company, Stratagem Construction.

We had a great experience working with Habitar/Stratagem to design and remodel the kitchen in our hundred-year-old house. During the design process, we worked closely with Hannah to come up with a plan that would fit our lifestyle and use our space more efficiently. She did a great job of listening to us and then suggesting options and ideas. After we settled on a final design, we started to work with the contracting side to bring it to life. That was a painless process — the Stratagem crew did a great job and stayed close to the schedule and budget ... even in our old house with crooked walls and wonky floors! Their work was meticulous and clean and they did a good job of keeping us informed throughout. We highly recommend Habitar/Stratagem ... lots of people have kitchen remodeling horror stories, but Habitar/Stratagem makes it an easy experience!

We used Habitar for both the design phase and the construction phase of our fireplace project (completed October 2019). MacKenzie (designer) was friendly, knowledgable and really helpful. She helped us visualize possibilities and offered expert advice. She was patient when we had questions, which made the experience less stressful for us. We then used Zane, Sebastian and Will for the remodeling of our fireplace, which included building it out (essentially taking out the existing mantel) and adding stone/tile on all sides. They also also added a small niche with an electrical outlet and ran conduit through the wall to hide all of the cords to our DVR/gaming/internet devices. The construction phase went INCREDIBLY smoothly. The crew showed up on time, worked efficiently and cleanly, and were done in the amount of time they estimated. At the end of each day, they checked in with us. One thing I especially liked was how responsive Zane was once the project started; we changed our minds about the location of the television, and it was incredibly easy to talk to the team here and make it happen. I would highly recommend Habitar. You might pay a bit of a premium, but you are getting design and construction teams that communicate and make sure the customer is satisfied. We will definitely use them again in the future.

We initially engaged Habitar Design to redesign our living room (fireplace, built-in cabinetry, built-in aquarium) and our family room (fireplace and built-in cabinetry). We provided some ideas of what we had in mind as well as our budget. MacKenzie's initial drawings were 99% on spec, and we only made one minor change to one of the cabinets when we finalized the drawings. When it came time to bid the work, Strategem (sister company to Habitar) provided us with one of the bids. We were impressed with with the incredibly detailed quote, which in the end, turned out to be exactly on spec. The only changes to the cost were because of additional items we added as the project went on. Finally, the craftsmanship and professionalism of Nick (project manager) and Sebastian at Strategem we're second to none. Communication was excellent, our place was cleaned up every evening, and, above all, the finished product is impeccable.

Habitar Design/Strategem Construction exceeded expectations by delivering on distinctive design and craftsmanship for a larger home remodel project - all delivered on-time. Highlights include an excellent project management staff, commitment to follow-through (punch list) after final delivery, and the quality of the installed fixtures: kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, floors, lighting fixtures, and paint. We couldn't be happier. The firm will be our go-to for future projects and feel confident recommending them to friends and neighbors alike.

Habitar’s Kappan Shippan did an absolutely fantastic design. I am completely satisfied with the work that she did. I would absolutely recommend her and Habitar for your next design.

We used both Habitar Design and Stratagem Construction for two projects over the past year and would use again for future projects. Our first project was to design an office/ living space for our first floor den. MacKenzie was our designer and did a great job of presenting several options. In the end, we chose to build a customer office area. Our project manager Zane and his crew were very professional, timely and ensured we were satisfied with the final result. Because we were happy with our first project we decided to do a “face lift “of the kitchen (painting cabinet, new counters and lighting). The team worked around our schedule and completed the work while we were out of town, coming home to a new kitchen was great!

Habitar was great and helping with our design in our remodel. While they did more minor things (which were still important) like picking out paint colors and light fixtures, where they really shined was in the remodel of two of our bathrooms and our fireplace surround. We constantly are getting compliments on the design!
