Here are some nice things our clients had to say.

“I have always felt that building a home or addition is one of most personal things one can undertake. Having known and worked with Dave Brady of Oak Design & Construction for years his firm really takes this to heart. Many construction companies see a home as a door here, some lights there, and some cooling and heat all around here. Dave’s craftsmen see it from a 50ft perspective. They become keenly aware of your lifestyle needs and desires now and into the future. There are not many firms like Oak Design & Construction. I highly recommend them for your next project.” 

John Baumeister, Tech Tonic LLC

" Thank you for rebuilding my home in Edgebrook after the damage of a fire. There was quality workmanship from the design to the installation including the plumbing, electrical, painting, carpentry, tile, roofing, windows, bathroom, kitchen and stairs. Everything was done on time and all my questions were answered during those long days of work. Making the house I grew up in a beautiful, safe, and modern home. I am very proud of my 1872 New Home. " 

Ray, Chicago

“What a pleasant surprise to receive a gift from you; and the perfect gift at that! But then, you know I love coffee. Thank you! More importantly, thank you for collaborating with me on improving my beautiful home. After the various solutions to a myriad of water problems, I am confident in this house as a shelter. After the kitchen windows and counter, exterior lighting and privacy panels, French doors and comprehensive bedroom remodeling, I am thrilled with it as a dwelling. I look forward to our next project together.” 
Liz, Oak Park


 “Your workers were some of the most professional workers I have run across. Their skills and expertise were amazing.” 
Nancy, Hawthorn Woods
“The quality craftsmanship of Oak Design’s cabinetry was far better than anything I’d seen “off the shelf.” 
Roberta, Oak Park



“To say that we have been pleased with every aspect of our addition would be an understatement. Each and every employee of Oak Design was kind, courteous and respectful of our house and our family life. The site was clean and orderly, the subcontractors were well managed and the job was timely. When your team left our project we missed seeing them. From attention to detail and matching the original house to the design, to the quality of craftsmanship, nothing was forgotten. We thank you for a job well done!” 
Gwen, River Forest

“Oak Design had immediate appeal to us: they provided architectural services, design services, product purchasing and construction management as one unified service offering. As we began to absorb the details involved with our effort, we realized we needed a provider who had total control of all these aspects. It brought us peace of mind knowing that our single point of contact at Oak Design was overseeing every detail.” 
Steve & Phoebe, Oak Park


“From the time Oak Design came by to see the space to consultation with the design team, I knew I was working with people who really wanted to understand what I wanted. Oak Design did not try to force me into something they liked or just wanted to do” 
Diane, Oak Park


“We pondered our project for a long time. We were concerned about how disruptive the project it would be to our lives. Could we afford the expense? Would we get our money back at the time of selling? Could an architecturally congruent addition even be built onto our Dutch colonial home? As we are of retirement age, we wondered whether it was a good idea to make the investment. I want to thank you, Dave, for encouraging us and for making sure that it turned out so well.” 
Katherine, Oak Park
