  • "You won't find another design+build management firm for your project that is more dedicated than Studio 818."
    — Melanie Haselmayr
  • "We had a huge remodel project in Harbor Beach, Fort Lauderdale that had gone South due to disorganization from another design firm. Janie and her team came in and saved the day!"
    — Ana Sanchez
  • I highly recommend Janie and Studio 818 - we couldn't have made our dream home without her. Communication is very important to me when working with someone and Janie made sure she was in touch about upcoming timelines, decisions that had to be made and any troubleshooting.

  • Studio 818 you guys are the best! Words can not express how happy I am with my 818 home. My life is forever changed and my 2124 Dreamlodge is truly my dream home!! Janie, JP and Studio 818 make dreams come true. 
    — Joe DelMonte
  • My gorgeous new kitchen with 15-foot island puts my last kitchen in New York to shame. I'm retired now and absolutely love cooking and entertaining in this fabulous home. JP and Janie are a great find for a modern well-done design and renovation of a 1960's house.
