My Childhood Lack of 'Home'
Ignited My Passion for Creating Them

Throughout my childhood, my family and I moved all over, never staying in one place for long. This transient lifestyle made it challenging to establish a sense of home, as I was unsure of how long we would remain in each location.

In my late 20’s, I started to learn the power of creating a home using the power of style, color, texture, lighting, and spacing. It had such a profound positive effect on me. This drove my passion for creating personalized spaces and helping others find that same sense of home, tailored to their unique style and needs.

At SJ Design + Build, a female-owned and queer-owned company, we're all about crafting spaces as unique as you are. As a one-stop shop, we’ll guide you through the design and build process, with skilled contractors and partners by our side. With years of experience and a meticulous eye for detail, we’ll ensure every aspect is perfect, so you can sit back and watch your dream space become reality.

"More than happy with the result!"

“We’ve used Samantha and her team for several projects both indoor and outdoor. The latest was a bathroom remodel which we are very happy with. A more than fair estimate was provided at the start of the project. The team was extremely clean and tidy, ensuring all areas were clean before leaving for the day. We were more than happy with the result that exceeded our initial expectations.”
