Kraus, Greg

Greg Kraus

Design Director

With an Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota, Greg’s work is strongly influenced by a number of critical design approaches.

During his career in the design-build industry he’s honed his skills to create efficiencies and streamlined communication. He brings great joy to his work with clients and is constantly seeking most appropriate ways to guide each one through their unique process in a clear and meaningful way.

Rymer, Christina

Christina Rymer

Design Director

After more than a decade in our industry, Christina believes design should support her clients' lives as a reflection of them and their values. The relationships she builds with her clients and their families are her favorite part of the design-build process, which extends to our entire production team. Backed by a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design at The Art Institutes, Christina understands the relationship of how interiors affect homeowners. Beyond the initial design phase of listening and relating to her clients, she enjoys the holistic and creative shared experience of seeing the construction process come alive.
