Welcome to Yalecrest Building and Design 
YBD is a general contracting company that specializes in full-home remodels and additions.  Today's building trend is all about "Design Build" where the contractor is heavily involved in the design process with the architect and owner to collaboratively design a project that is not only beautiful and functional but cost effective to build.  YBD designs smaller projects to get the most out of your existing space in new and creative ways.  For larger projects, we work closely with your architect to design and build your home to be functional and beautiful.  If you need an architect and not sure who to use, check out the design page above for some recommendations of great architects.

Here are some before and after pictures.
The roof was re-pitched to add living space and architectural interest.  Dormers were added and windows replaced.  The garage was converted into a library and the garage door was changed to a copper-topped bay window.

The re-pitched roof made it possible to add this lovely master bathroom with jetted tub, double furniture-style vanity and a large shower with 2 shower heads and 4 body jets.

 The kitchen started out as a small galley way.  Sadly, before pictures are lost.  Just 5 1/2' was added to make room for this 7'x 4' granite island with prep-sink and bar seating.  A large pantry and Wolf appliances make this kitchen a dream.
