OUR STORY

Taylor Construction + Design began as Taylor Design Shop in 2017 in a 400 sq ft garage with no tools and as a woodworking hobby for Truitt Taylor. Truitt felt called to leave his corporate job and start Taylor Design Shop and in October of 2017, he hired his first employee. A year later, he moved into a 1400 sq ft warehouse and began making custom furniture, custom cabinetry, and transitioned into renovations. The team's strong attention to detail led to their first kitchen renovation in 2019 which was completed in five days! All the team's skills from woodworking and design went into focusing on renovations. 

In 2021, Truitt and his team moved into a 3,000 sq ft shop and the team grew to four full time employees. We currently work with mid to high-end renovations starting at $50k.
