What’s keeping you up at night?

Has the thought of remodeling been an absolute nightmare?


You’re losing sleep, thinking about wanting to remodel your kitchen or bathroom, or wanting to add space for a real home office. But you’re worried that the results won’t align with your expectations.


You’ve seen contractor’s trucks at neighbors’ homes. You’ve heard stories from family and friends about their remodeling projects. You think, “I’m tired of waiting!”


You were planning to remodel but got delayed during the pandemic. Now you need to remodel or add onto your home and can’t find the right products, or people to help you.


You want honest help sorting everything out. You’ve heard about product shortages, looked at products online and visited showrooms. You’ve heard about problems that others have had. Now what?

Accessible bathroom in West Linn designed by Diane PlessetDiane listened and provided creative suggestions, solutions, and alternatives during the time we worked on the design to remodel a powder room to create a full bathroom in our home.

She left no detail untouched. Such thoroughness and professional know-how are an asset one does not find every day.

Diane is very pleasant to work with — prompt, responsive, well informed.

New Kitchen Addition in Sweet Home designed by Diane PlessetDiane was a pleasure to work with. She listened carefully to all our ideas and came up with a dynamic kitchen and great room design that fit my needs completely!

She never lost her cool even when I called her at the last minute and said I needed an under counter microwave in the smoothie bar. She simply said, ‘Let’s see what I can do.’ She increased the size and shape of our bar to make it work!

Her total design was beautiful and when friends walk into my house the first time, they usually stop, look and exclaim ‘Wow!’

4 Easy Steps to your Remodeling Success

Initial Process

In a phone call or virtual meeting that lasts about 30 minutes, we’ll talk about your problems, needs, wants, budget, expectations, and timeline.  At the end, we’ll decide if an in-person meeting is the logical next step.

In-person Meeting

We’ll meet in your home to look at the areas you want to remodel. I’ll ask questions about what you don’t like, and ask about your timeline and budget. Then I’ll send you a detailed proposal that recaps our discussions, lists my services and fee. If I meet your expectations, then you’ll hire me.


I’ll take measurements accurate to 1/16″, then prepare as-built and unlimited proposed plans. You’ll get virtual-reality renderings to show you how your finished project will feel and look. I’ll help you make essential decisions about everything for your project.

Improved Home, Improved Life!

I’ll work with you, contractors and suppliers as a team through successful completion of your project. With me at and on your side, you’re never alone!
