DF Design Build was established in 2010 by founder Dave Funk. An education in Construction Engineering Technology / Architecture has provided Dave with a solid technical foundation for the construction process, as well as standards and acceptable practices. Starting out as a residential framer, he learned a complete understanding of how a home is built as well as an appreciation for the trades and the value they bring to the process. After framing, Dave went on to work for an established Niagara homebuilder, where he was responsible for designing, costing, managing, meeting and executing the build.

Dave has built the company on trust and honesty. When you enter into a relationship with DF Design Build, you are guaranteed to be taken care of. His training, experience and work ethic are the foundations of a company that will work for you to get the results you desire.

As a result of relocating to Niagara- on- the- Lake in 2013 and after reviewing numerous builders we selected D.F.Design Build to design and construct our new home.

Working with Dave Funk ( principle of D. F. Design Build) throughout the design consultation and home construction procedure was a flawless exercise and a complete pleasure. During the entire home building process we found Dave to possess rigorous project oversight/management skills, excellent communication, work ethics and integrity.

We found the trades people to be of a high calibre, conscientious, polite and respectful. All of which has resulted in a home construction delivered on time and of high quality, exceeding our expectations.

We would have no reservations in recommending D.F.Design Build to anyone seeking design, renovation or new home construction services.
