Excel Builders and JLC Design are excited to announce a new partnership. Jessica Cook, the owner and designer at JLC Design, and I have decided to combine our services to give you the best of both worlds - a great remodeling company along with an outstanding design firm.
Why is this partnership beneficial for both Excel Builders and JLC Design? As we continue to grow we strive to offer the best possible services and expertise. It is our goal to make your remodeling project a great experience. Jessica has the same outlook and ambitions as Excel Builders - to give you a positive experience with added value.
As the owner of Excel Builders I feel that all too often designers are looked upon as an expense without a return. We find the opposite to be true, since using a designer has many benefits when planning and executing a remodeling project. A designer can bring a fresh perspective to the creation of a functional and welcoming space. In addition to the look, designers can also help you see how your space will work after you build it, helping you avoid costly changes in the future.
Jessica graduated from UW-Stout in Menomonie WI with a BFA in Interior Design. Upon graduating she interned at Drury's Furniture in Fountain Minnesota. Jessica then worked in collaboration with another local Minneapolis designer before starting her own design business in August of 2010.
