Who We Are

M Design Build has been doing business in the Milwaukee area for close to a decade, but our team of home remodeling contractors offers many more times that in years of experience spent remodeling and renovating existing homes in Milwaukee’s North Shore communities. Our combined expertise means we can offer clients a turnkey experience that ensures a five-star end result – your perfect home.

From concept to completion, we work with our clients to clarify your expectations and educate you on the complicated process of remodeling.  We know your home is one of your biggest assets and we focus on adding value to that investment through quality craftsmanship, high-end materials, and the creation of a space that is everything you want and need it to be. We don’t just work to meet your expectations; we strive to surpass them.

Our Team Of High End Residential Contractors

Mike Slawnikowski, Owner

Mike’s experience in general contracting and remodeling dates back more than 20 years. During this time, he learned hands-on all facets of the business, from pricing to project management. Most importantly, he says, he learned what not to do. “Bad experiences can teach you as much as good ones. I saw the effects of unclear communication, sub-standard materials, and careless workmanship on both the quality of the work and the satisfaction of customers. And I saw the flip side – which is how I developed M Design Build: consistent communication, quality materials, a team of talented and skilled craftspeople, and customers who were thrilled with the result.”

Terry Perschbacher, Production Manager

A professional who works best under tight deadlines and has an eye trained on the big picture, Terry is the leader you want when the pressure is on. With more than 17 years of experience in high-end custom home construction, large scale additions, whole house remodels, and bathroom and kitchen renovations, managing high-quality projects completed on time and within budget is the centerpiece of his role as Production Manager with M Design Build.  His expertise in project planning, budgeting, client communications, managing subcontractors and attention to detail make him a valuable asset to the M Design Build team.

Subcontracting Team

Great teams operate on a foundation of trust, respect and proven abilities. Over the years, M Design Build has developed partnerships with a select group of craftspeople and tradespeople who we know to be trustworthy and as focused on quality as we are.  For each M Design Build project, we create a team of experts chosen specifically to meet the needs of the particular client. Experience tells us that we can count on these partners for superior response times, quality workmanship and consistently excellent trade reputations.

Creativity matters. Having this quality team onboard allows us to offer creative options to clients who want an out-of-the-ordinary solution. For example, working with local artisans, we combined utility and design to provide a client with handcrafted, one-of-a-kind kitchen seating featuring ornamental metal accents, a custom pot rack and a ladder to allow access to high cabinet storage areas.  The result was a perfect blend of art and usability that reflected the homeowners’ taste and lifestyle.
