Customer Testimonials

"My architect recommended Marcel Design Builders to reconstruct my kitchen and dining room. She thought they were a quality organization, so I decided to have Brian, the owner of the company, take a look. I liked him immediately. We felt very comfortable with him and loved his ideas and suggestions. Before he could begin work on our kitchen, a tree fell on our deck, so we hired Marcel Design Builders for not only our original job but for the deck and screened in porch repairs. When the deck and screened in porch were completed, he immediately went on to the kitchen and dining area. Brian and his team were always on time, friendly and I felt comfortable leaving the house while they worked. They always made sure everything was clean before they left and with Brian the lines of communication were always open. Not only did Marcel Design Buliders do a wonderful job, they also went above and beyond their job description helping me choose wall color, tile and granite to make my dream kitchen. I will definitly contract Brian and Marcel Design Builders for any renovation in the future." -Shauna from Mt. Lookout

"Dear Brian, What is it about human beings that so often we think, I want to do such and such?, like write you a note in this case, and yet put it off because we don't have the words. Well here goes... When I sit out on this screened in porch, sometimes it literally takes my breath away. It's so perfect and so beautiful in countless ways. I'm just so grateful. It's a work of art and as I've said before; a dream come to fruition that truthfully I never really believed would come true. And then to have the whole thing executed by not only a skilled and talented craftsman, but a man of morals and integrity. I don't mean to embarrass you, but I can't help but feel so fortunate You have my respect and admiration and above all my gratitude for a wonderful porch and deck. It has brought me so much peace, joy and contentment. Thank you, thank you, thank you." -Janice from Mt. Washington

"From our very first planning meeting through the completion of our project, we felt comfortable working with Marcel Design Builders and felt confident in their ability to deliver the quality of work we wanted at a fair and reasonable price.

Marcel Design Builders managed the complete remodel, renovation, and modernization of our historic 5 bedroom/4 bath home. With a project of this scope and size, we appreciated the almost daily communication from Marcel about the progress being made. We also valued the professional suggestions and recommendations we received from Marcel. Their input helped us make the right choices for our house and our family along the way. We absolutely love our "new” house." -Darin and Andrea from Fort Thomas

"If you're looking for a contractor who is an accomplished craftsman, a great listener, and is always honest, Brian is your best choice. Whether your project is big or small, Marcel Design Builders can do it all, discuss your options and make suggestions on how to accomplish your goals. Our experience with Brian has always been excellent. We have recommended Marcel Design Builders to our friends (very picky people)- and they have in turn recommended him to their friends. -Stan and Sharon from Hyde Park

"Brian Shackelford, owner of Marcel Design Builders came to my condo to look at my kitchen. Due to my health I was unable to go out and pick my appliances, fixtures, flooring, etc. I explained to Brian what I wanted and he drew up the design plan and picked out the appliances, fixtures, countertops and brought me samples of flooring, paint colors etc. He completed the job on schedule and it was exactly what I wanted! A couple of years later Brian remodeled my guest bathroom. While recuperating from a fall Brian continued to work and when I returned home the bathroom was complete, right down to the shower curtain and towels to match. Very professional! The head of our maintenance department has brought people that were interested in purchasing condos in the building to look at mine for ideas! To make a long story short, I am very well pleased with the work that Marcel Design Builders has done and highly recommend them. - Wilma from Hyde Park       

Just a note of appreciation for the terrific job you and the other craftsmen did on the remodeling of our kitchen. Everyone that played a part in the transformation was very professional and approached the work with a positive attitude to do the work in the right way. No one accepted the " short cuts " which are all to commonly taken in today's home improvement projects. Everyone was a pleasure to have in our home and made sure that our desires were given top priority. If all your work is of the same quality, I am sure you must have lots of satisfied customers. The end result speaks volumes. - Mike and Marcia Powell from Mt. Washington
