When I first engaged with TK Design on my 1st two jobs under my new company, Grewal Homes, I had the pleasure to work with Eric Tiffin on setting the scope of services and signing the contracts. His preliminary questions covered items I didn’t initially think of that certainly removed any misunderstandings that would have come at a later date. He was frank and honest in managing my expectations, something that is not an industry standard unfortunately.

In addition, Angela Nuveman was extremely pleasant to work with, from start to finish! She’s personable, down-to-earth, professional and experienced as she worked with me to fine-tune my home plans. She was responsive on every question and change request I made and she did a phenomenal job corridinating with her team to complete the construction sets. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

TK home design is who you want in your corner! Their knowledge and experience cannot be matched. Todd and Katie go above and beyond their customer’s expectations.

Amy Revord

I have used several different architects over the last 8 years. There is no other firm that was as thorough or caring as TK Design. From the initial meeting to the last set of drawings provided – they answered all questions and produced exactly what they said they would produce on time. Every time. If you want the design of your house down right the first time. Call them. Today.

Richard Essenmacher

Great staff to work with from top to bottom. Made the design process fun, easy to go through and in the end came up with a great home design just for us!

John Okoniewski

Bill Leiser, Jacob Whitting, Julie Drury, and Mike Latimer were always professional, eager to assist, and responsive. We recognized and valued the experience Bill and Mike brought to the table and valued their recommendations. Jacob created a beautiful 3D design that visually represented what we could only describe. And Julie treated us with kindness and hospitality each visit. This was a new experience for us, Bill, Jacob, Mike and Julie made us feel we were in good hands, although everyone we met were courteous. It was a pleasure meeting T&K, they are running a remarkable business. Congratulations and best wishes to everyone.

We have worked with TK for several years. They have been wonderful to work with! Their elevations and designs are always a big hit with our new home buyers. They are very easy to work with, and do a great job in providing quality plans in a very timely fashion. Their staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and diligent. I would highly recommend them to anyone. We plan on using their services into the future and we think you should do the same!

John McCafferty

This team really does show “care” They have been so responsive, went above and beyond, always professional and went out of their way to make sure that we were happy and that our design process was flawless, which is was! Thank you team! I give you a 10 star rating!

My work experience spans over 25 years from commercial to residential design in offices with as few as two employees to a design-build firm with over 100 employees. From this experience, I can confidently state that TK Design offers the best workplace culture. A company’s culture is its personality, derived from its leaders and their ability to inspire motivation, morale, and creativity within its team.

The leaders at TK Design support their employees throughout their time at the company. They have an established onboarding training, involving hands-on projects with multiple reference materials. Through this training, TK identifies an individual’s strengths and strives to encourage them to continue to grow and flourish within the company.

Throughout the year, everyone in the office enjoys participating in team-building activities. These activities get individuals out into the field to see their hard work come to life. Sometimes they include friendly in-house competitive games to increase engagement and break up a typical day. The positive actions experienced at TK Design helps to maintain and increase motivation to reach our client and personal goals.

So if you are seeking a career in architecture or looking for a new home / remodel, I highly recommend reaching out to TK Design!

Annette Gleason

TK has designed much of the interior and exterior redesign of our home. The designs have truly transformed our lake home. Contractors have found them to be terrific partners in the process. We would definitely recommend them.

Chris Markey

TK Design has the experience, knowledge and creativity you need and want when designing your dream home.

Cory Sultana

We had TK do the design for our home. We live out of state and they are so easy to work with. They used video conference calls along with emails to make it so smooth. I would use them again in future if we ever built again. Even our contractor said they had never seen such detail on blue prints.

Jennifer Olson

Yes… I am REALLY happy that Mike Miller recommended you to us. We are now correcting many ills in the home including some that I believe were caused by the previous owner’s design firm. We feel confident and happy with the quality of your company’s work.

Rick and Nan Sharpe

As an employee at TK Home Design, I can confidently say that this is a company that truly values its employees and provides a remarkable work environment.

TK Design is a group of talented individuals who are not only highly skilled but also incredibly supportive. TK Home Design fosters a culture of collaboration, creativity, and continuous learning. I have had the opportunity to work on an array of projects with production homes, custom homes and elaborate renovations, and my contributions are always recognized and appreciated.

The leadership at TK Home Design is truly exceptional. They are approachable, supportive, and genuinely care about the success and happiness of their employees. The open-door policy encourages open communication, and ideas and suggestions are always welcomed and considered. It’s incredibly empowering to work in an environment where your voice is heard and valued.

I cannot recommend TK Home Design enough. It’s a company that not only delivers outstanding results for its clients but also prioritizes the growth and well-being of its employees. If you’re looking for a place where you can thrive professionally and personally, TK Home Design is the perfect fit. I am grateful to be a part of this incredible team, and I look forward to many more years of success and fulfillment here!

Angela Nuveman

TK Design offers professionalism, excellent customer service, and employees with amazing skills and talent. Creating a home design was a new experience for us…didn’t even know what questions to ask at times. We valued the experience that their employees brought to the table and felt comfortable in asking for recommendations knowing we would get a thoughtful response without imposition. It was evident that our vision was their vision. Our goals were theirs as well. They had patience, quick responses and moved us through the process efficiently. The final 3D walkthrough was seeing our dream come to life. We couldn’t ask for better service. Thank you TK!

Charles Campbell & Deborah Meadows

My wife and I loved the entire process with TK. very friendly, quick and easy to work with. Super excited to see completed home.

Gregory Pahl

TK has been great to work with! Friendly staff that is very knowledgeable. Whether starting from scratch or looking for inspiration from one of their many existing plans – I would highly recommend them!

Logan McAnallen

Todd and his team at TK Design wer incredible at the entire process of designing our house. Every step of the way their team helped my wife and I with great design choices using their thoughtful suggestions and creativity. True professional in the business as they helped us create our forever home, we cannot recommend them enough.

Loren Baidas

I have worked on many of your guys design’s. I’ve probably framed 20 homes Todd and team designed. I’ve also brought clients there to get design’s done. You guys are top notch for sure!!

Joe Shipley

Todd is a very professional and knowledgeable architect. Highly recommend.

Hockey Mom 7

Great professional group of people to work with!

Tom St. Germain

Steve, the girls, and I have been in our house for over a year already!  Time flies and we couldn’t have asked for a better house for quarantine times! You and your team gave us a wonderful design, and Mario and his teams made it come to life!

Sarah Empie

Mike and Bill were wonderful to work with. They both listened to our wants and needs and implemented them into our design. Mike was great with making suggestions to adding additional rooms, changing room sizes, and making the footprint fit on our lot.
Mike and Bill were always prepared for our meetings and had the tools available to make changes while we were there.
Always promptly returned phone calls.
The experience was great! If we were to design a house again, we would come back to TK. Everyone at TK was friendly, responsive, and easy to work with.
Our experience with TK Designs was wonderful. Everyone was so easy to work with. We looked forward to our meetings not only because we were excited to see the design evolve but the friendliness of the team. Mike incorporated our suggestions as well as making suggestions for moving the laundry room and adding a family entrance and powder room to meet our requirements. Phone calls were always responded to quickly and professionally and deliverables were always on time. Mike explained the design process at our first meeting and what deliverables to expect and when. The process went smoothly. After we paid for our design and the builder required some changes, the changes were made immediately and new designs back in our hands in order for the build to go forward. We would gladly recommend TK Designs to anyone looking for an architect.

Jeff & Gerry Muhn

I worked with Annette on a commercial project. What started off as a small need turned into a major undertaking. Annette was professional, patient, efficient, and knowledgeable, and was truly a pleasure to work with.

Kisha Quinn

Eric Tiffin was a dream to work with. Many great ideas.

Overall experience was first class.

Chris & Beth Booth

Very good customer interaction and flexibility

Summit Homebuilding

TK was great to work with. Darren & the rest of the staff were helpful through the whole process. Would use them again on our next build, they make it easy.

Jack Longberry

Todd and Katie have built a wonderful business, and it shows in their product. Their vast experience in the industry is evident from the attention to detail; from the brainstorming sessions thought the design phase, to producing high quality efficient drawings for the contractors. It seems they are light years ahead of the competition as they focus on deploying the latest and most efficient technology while continuously evolving through their customer and partners’ feedback. This attitude has created a winning atmosphere within their entire team, the culture of the company is fantastic, and it’s no wonder why they can deliver outstanding results time after time. I couldn’t be more pleased.

John Barnett

@tkhomedesign has been absolutely amazing though! They’re so quick to get me back revisions on items we are removing. This is important because we need the final plans to get the permits. I cannot recommend TK enough!

Rowe Family

Our experience working with the team at TK Design has always been exceptional! We have worked with them on several projects and have been satisfied with the results every time. Their design talents combined with construction expertise are among the best in the industry. We look forward to continuing this working relationship with TK Design!

Dennis Shriver, Hearthside Homes

Love it!  Best architect ever! 🙂

Mike Kalis

TK Design did a wonderful job with our idea for our home.

Brian and Christine Omerod

My wife and I have engaged Mike at TK Design to bring us a concept for a beautiful English cottage style home on a great lot in Royal Oak. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the concept drawings and layout. We have some work to do but Mike understands what we want and is showing us exactly what we want to see! We can’t wait to take this home from concept to reality!

Shannon Watts
It’s such a pleasure working with TK Designs! Their extreme design talent and creativity brings our projects to life. First class all the way!
Tom Jaworski

Top-notch experience from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier with our final design.

Cooper Wanty

We couldn’t be happier with the redesign of our home. If you’re looking for more than a cookie cutter home, TK’s designs are both functional and beautiful. Our last major renovation is the main bathroom and a showstopper thanks to Todd and team.

Katie Markey

TK Design was an exceptional team to work with! They planned our renovation plan for our northern Michigan home and we couldn’t be happier. They brought our vision to life, came up with suggestions/improvements to our ideas, and the project turned out better than we had ever hoped. Thank you again TK, we love our home now!

Terri Vanhurk

Todd and the team did an exceptional job on our home.  We get tons of compliments on it and let them know TK did the design and Mike built it. I’ve seen TK signs out on sites when I’ve been on my walks in town. YAY!!! If I see an owner around, I tell them they won’t be disappointed…actually, they’ll be elated, with their new (not house) home. TK designs homes, not houses, and we are one of the recipients of TK’s talent. How lucky are we?

Mary Courvisier

These guys are the real deal! Working for a homebuilder in north Texas, I’ve experienced several plan designers and architects. Todd & Katie have an incredibly talented team of professionals that know what they’re doing and stay with you every step of the way. They not only design amazing homes, but they explain ‘the why’ that goes into each one. They are a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

Todd Greenfield, Riverside Homebuilders

We personally enjoyed our relationship with Todd. He is very likeable, experienced, and continuously strives for complete customer understanding and satisfaction. I would not hesitate to hire TK Design for another house design.

Sandy Wojotowicz

Todd – Thank you for designing a home that we are extremely proud to call ours. You were able to integrate the ideas we initially had into a unique floor plan that is perfect for our family. The elevation that you designed was beyond the expectations we had before starting the project. We have been thoroughly impressed with the high level of service that you have brought to every phase of the design process. We will not hesitate to recommend TK Design to others. Thank you for designing our dream home.

Matt & Christy Stevens

Being in the building business for over 20 years, I have worked with many architects on various styles and sizes of homes.  Our expectations are very high and we are sometimes very demanding.  Todd and the TK team have exceeded our expectations on all of the projects. It is a great feeling to know you have a professional architecture firm that not only designs a beautiful home and listens to our customers, but also keeps our customer’s budget in mind through the entire project.

Mike Miller, President of Mike Miller Building Co.

Every experience we have had with TK Design has been exceptional. Their design group is very talented, and their responsiveness is unmatched.

Joe Miceli, Product Development Manager for Robertson Brothers

It is an ABSOLUTE pleasure working behind your TEAMS plan sets. They are the BEST I have ever worked with in 30 years. No joke. Easiest plans to estimate & get said estimates to meet end invoicing. Makes a HUGE difference.

Matt Giuliani, Mans Lumber

Todd – we appreciate our new home more than you can ever know. We are very proud of it. We, of course, will be recommending your firm.

Donna Merlau

Every experience I have had working with Todd and Katie has been fantastic. They go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. Todd’s construction experience is such an asset in understanding site construction related to print design. They are extremely talented and work fabulously with my clients as well. I feel confident when referring my clients to them that they will be ecstatic with their experience and the results of their dream home.

Amy Crotty, President of Dreamwork Builders, Inc.

Todd, my wife Julie and I are elated with the home that you designed with us. You were able to bring our vision to life. As an architect myself, I also appreciate the great detail in your drawings. Our home is coming together beautifully in construction. I would highly recommend you to anyone in need of architectural services.

Doug Lindsay

I am nearing completion of my second project with TK Design. My experience with them has been nothing but positive. Todd’s talent in design is exceptional. Their plans have been completed in a timely fashion and with accuracy. I would highly recommend TK Design, and, in fact, already have.

Matt Thurber, Owner of Evergreen Development

We are excited…that we have formed a strategic partnership with TK Design, an award winning design firm known for their unique design concepts and their high level of customer satisfaction. TK Design has an industry wide reputation for creating distinctive elevations that complement the natural features of the existing terrain. The TK Design team was selected after extensive research and consideration of many qualified candidates…..Todd’s extensive knowledge of the building trade is a result of time he served as the President of Delcor Homes, a building/development company.

David Compo, President/Owner of Compo Builders, Inc

It is my pleasure to recommend the services of TK Design & Associates. During the past three years, our experience working with Todd and Katie has been fantastic. Todd’s background in construction has been an asset to our working relationship and his “muddy shoes” approach to construction blends nicely with our lean building process. DSLD Homes & TK Home Design & Associates both share the same type of mission statement, which is to offer top-notch workmanship while striving for customer satisfaction. I would not hesitate to retain their services again and would recommend them to anyone looking for top quality designs within any budget.

Saun Sullivan, DSLD Homes

The balance of your creative talents and real world building experiences are a winning combination for any building company…I enjoyed developing the concepts for the Charleston Park project with your firm, and believe that the line-up developed will be the basis of our success. These unique home plans are not only first class aesthetically, but also give our home buyers a great living condition…

Joe Kheder, President of Kheder Homes

Todd – I loved the prints from the moment I saw them. I lived in Europe for a time growing up and I definitely experience a reminiscence of the homes there, particularly in France – when I look at the elevation on our soon-to-be new home. Thank you for the job well done!

Ellen Pedersen

The house that you designed for us (we call it the Brittany) is very popular with our sales team and we have sold several too. Just thought you would want to know.

Jim Burbank, President of Saussy Burbank Building Co.

Todd and Katie Hallett share our company’s mission of differentiation through high style, unique yet functional design, and exceptional service.

Rich Kligman, President of Superb Custom Homes

We have always had a positive working relationship with TK Design. Todd’s talent in design has helped us to win several awards including “Community of the Year”. In addition to this they are very responsive and, because of their vast experience in the building industry, they understand our needs as it relate to cost, speed, and accuracy. It is truly a pleasure to do business with them.

Mike Cameron, Vice President of Delcor Homes

Of all the 100’s of decisions I’ve made while building my house, the best decision-by far-was to start with TK Design to design my house. As my house finishes up, I realized how incredibly important it is to start with a great design. If you start with a mediocre or bad design, no amount of carpentry (or other trades) will fix it. I’ve received many, many compliments on my house, and it’s not even finished yet! 

TK and the team were also great after the fact (well after the design was complete). I had a few important follow-up questions half-way through the build, and they were quick to help out. Honestly, I couldn’t have been happier working with TK.

Greg Brown

We utilized Tk Design’s services for our Deer Run project of affordable single family homes in Genesee county. They have excellent design skills including efficient floor plans, cost effective details and appealing elevations. Services were performed timely and at a reasonable fee……they were a pleasure to work with and we eagerly await our next project with them.

Richard Komer, President of Wineman & Komer

TK Design & Associates provides home plans that are economical to build yet contain the features that homeowners desire. The team at TK has been quick to respond to requests for variations on our current designs, and they always deliver the final plans on time. In addition, TK works well with our customers, and they are professional and proactive when our trade partners recommend changes to a plan.
Redstone Homes has a reputation for excellence in the single-family home and condominium industry. In addition, we consistently receive high marks when it comes to customer satisfaction. Therefore, we are happy to partner with TK Design because they hold themselves to the same high standards to which our happy homeowners have become accustomed.

Gary D. Hensch, President of Redstone Homes

As an architect, coming from the East coast, my wife and I are elated that you turned our design into a home we can be proud to pass on to future generations. I would highly recommend anyone to utilize your services.

Curtin K Bond, AIA

Todd, I have had great success with the Piedmont plan that I just bought from you. I have sold four already. The first one that I built I had budgeted like one of my previous plans from another architect. Your house came in $15K less. I am thrilled!

Dave Ernst, President of Prestige Builders

Please feel free to use us as a reference at any time. We have enjoyed working with you on projects. Your renderings, and detail are excellent and you are always very accommodating. We have appreciated the help you have offered us in marketing our projects as well. We look forward to working together in the future.

Dan Macleish, Macleish Building Co.

We were recommended to your firm by our builder and couldn't be happier that he did. From the very first meeting, Todd welcomed us in and made us feel right at home. That is so very important being that we have waited nearly 30 years to build our dream home. The friendly, relaxed and extremely professional way in which Todd helped us through the design process couldn't have been more perfect. He listened to our ideas and presented us with alternatives that were right in line with what we envisioned our dream home would be in Hidden Lake. The elevation he conceptualized for us is truly outstanding. Todd's vision has created something unique and a home that will stand out yet remain cohesive the the rest of the development. The entire staff is so warm and welcoming and Darren was amazing to be partnered with. We are thrilled with the final design outcome and look forward to getting construction under way. We would highly recommend TK Design to anyone looking to maximize the potential of their site with a unique and thought out design with a staff that is truly exceptional.

Mary and Ken Clark

Todd has incredible talent at designing floor plans — he can fit the most amazing floor plans in the smallest envelopes! — better than any designer I’ve ever worked with! And on top of that — the floor plans he creates are very functional — and on top of that — the elevations turn out remarkably beautiful as well as very buildable! I’ve worked with all kinds of the so called best architectural talent and found that some architects are good at floor plans and some are decent at elevations but few are good at both…

Phil McCafferty, Owner, Delcor Homes

Todd and all the staff are an amazing group to work with…they made me realize there are no silly questions!! I have worked on several projects with TK Design and look forward to so many more to come!! Thank you Todd, and to all of your remarkable personnel!
