Our team is there to help guide you and manage the project from start to finish.

Always Strive For Better Work. Never Stop Learning.

In 2014, Ryan Hemingson started R|House Design Build. After working in the industry for over 10 years, Ryan knew he could start up something that would not only be great, but inspiring. Ryan’s mission is to help his clients create a space that fits their unique lifestyle and bring it to life. 

We Love Building Awesome Interiors.

You, the client, is our main priority at R|House Design Build. We structure everything around you. All meetings take place within the comfort of your own home and around your schedule. Ryan and his team recognize that this is a huge investment for you and your family. Therefore, transparency and communication are the main components to our success. You get to see where all the numbers are coming from and we keep you updated throughout the entire build of your project.

Our Process

Our process is built around simplicity and transparency. There are four main phases throughout the build of our projects.

Initial Consultation

We begin the process by meeting with our clients in their home to get a feel for their needs, family and lifestyle. Everyone lives in their home differently and has their own unique way of using their space. During this phase we ask our clients detailed questions to find out what their wants and needs are. Ryan will also discuss the desired budget for the space and the other various meetings that will be needed to bring the project to life.

Designer/Measure Meeting

If a client decides to proceed after the initial consultation, the next phase it to do a hard measure of the space and go through specific details around materials, colors and overall style. This process allows the designers to gather the information needed to design a plan around our clients vision.

Designer Presentation

During this phase our clients get to see the creativity and design solutions that our designers are capable of. We present a conceptual plan around the clients wants and needs. Each presentation is presented in 2-D and 3-D using our architectural program. This process allows the clients to see what their space will actually look like once completed. During this meeting the client and designer can make adjustments in real time to the plan as needed. Each design is carefully thought through to ensure cohesiveness with the rest of the home.


Once a plan has been finalized that encompasses the clients wants, needs and budget, we will move into production. During this phase, the client will work very closely with their project manager to ensure the project stays on time and on budget.

  • As a design professional, I have so much respect and appreciation for a remodeling contractor who values design, and attention to detail. Working with R House Design Build has been a great experience for our company, and for our clients. They have a fabulous team that really cares about their clients, making sure that they achieve the best outcome for their project. The workmanship and quality of materials is nothing short of top-notch. I am thrilled to partner with such a great firm, and look forward to working on many more in the future!

    Sneak Peek Design
  • We are so happy with the way our new basement turned out! Ryan and Molly came up with a great plan and design and gladly made the modifications we wanted. The project was well organized and we were kept in the loop as far as when things would be happening. Joe was a great project manager and always got right back to us when we had questions or wanted a change made. The contractors who came through were all good and worked fast. We went from a basic unfinished basement to a beautiful family room / game room in just a few months. Our whole family is enjoying the new space! Ryan, Molly, and Joe have a lot of experience in the business and were able to answer all of my questions and worries about the project. They were all very professional and really great to work with. I would recommend them to anyone with a building or remodeling project!
