our philosophy

At Melby Design, we are very passionate about making the design process enjoyable.  "We strive to make the design into an experience rather than a task.  This is our number one goal.  If the client is happy with the experience, we delivered a home they love."

We are problem solvers that thrive off the opportunity to inspire while being challenged.

By utilizing our top of the line 3D software, we are able to present your home prior to construction.  This is key because often times it can be difficult to fully grasp the color pallet, materials, or the perspective as you approach the home.  There are no questions about what the home will look like as it comes to life.

We design where our clients take us; we can provide our services nationwide.
