Design & Build | Custom Cabinetry

New Construction

Emery Design | Build has expertise in the building industry along side strong relationships with some of the best architects, structural engineers and sub-contractors in the Metro Detroit area. We are responsible to stay current on the latest products, building methods, codes, requirements and ways to ensure energy efficiency. At Emery Design | Build we know that a new home build is often your largest personal investment and we pride ourselves in product knowledge and the highest level of quality control. With more than 30 combined years of experience in the construction field we have what it takes to assure that your project is completed on time and in budget.


As the owner/purchaser of the property you have the option of selecting an architecture firm, building company and interior designer to each provide there area of expertise. If you do not have assess to or do not feel comfortable choosing any of these entities we can suggest partnerships that we work closely with. In most cases the architect will make material selections before construction begins, however if you prefer, Emery Design | Build can help with selecting the right products and finishes for your project.


During the process of the architect drawing up the plans we will be in communication to answer any possible building requirements. Once the plans are complete, Emery Design | Build will bid out the project and select the appropriate crews of qualified contractors that meet your budget and allowances. We have found that it is best to make as many design selections as possible prior to construction in an effort to assure that the project stays on schedule and therefore is completed on time.

Lower Levels:

This is our background and one of the project types that most excites us. When finished and furnished this is a space to relax and get away from the hustle of day to day.

From Theaters & Media rooms, Game rooms & Bars, Lounging space and living rooms to guest bedrooms and bathrooms we keep in mind the architecture and decorating sense of what is found upstairs, while thinking outside the box and offering new ideas and ways to add unique detail to this get-away down under.

Bars & Entertainment Venues:

This is where our true passion lies, a place where creativity has no limits. Once we understand your needs and visions its off to the drawing board. A custom designed media room or home theatre is a great place for the family to relax and grow together. We enjoy working with our customers to bring their dreams to life. Residential bars are a great place to entertain and at Emery Design | Build we know just how to make that space fit and feel as though it belongs. So many residential bars don’t make sense, when they are designed to have you sit and look at a wall. When designing for you, we consider the entire space and how to make the most of this new feature meant to entertain and bring people together.

Wine Cellars:

From the proper insulation, wall construction and cooling systems to the custom racking our wine cellars will provide a unique setting to store your collection. Wine cellars are meant to utilize space by nature, something that we understand and strive to accomplish in every aspect of our business. These rooms are also a place to show off what you have spent years acquiring. At Emery Design | Build we enjoy working with the natural materials found in a cellar, stone floors, walls or even ceilings accompanied with solid wood entry doors and custom racking all offer an inviting felling. No matter the size of the room or the bottle capacity you wish to have, Emery Design | Build can help you with the entire process and build a cellar to fit your budget.

Custom ceilings/Crown molding:

Not be be overlooked, Ceilings can make a big impact on a room and transform any space. Coffered ceilings with Crown molding and beams will give the effect of raising your existing ceiling by drawing your eyes up and adding an Architectural feature that you and your guests will appreciate for years to come. Adding 100+ year old beams collected and repurposed from barns locally and all around our great country will allow you to show off your style while telling a story. A Trayed ceiling with up lighting will ultimately transform the feel of a space, great when used in media rooms and entertainment venues. Barreled and Vaulted ceilings look amazing dressed with stone, wood or other elements not traditionally used on the ceiling. At Emery Design | Build we love to see the excitement from our customers after adding any of the above features to a space that is often stood under yet overlooked.
