Our Story

By:  Dave Moore
Our story begins in the 1970's, when I experienced the renovation of my family's home on the shores of Big Cedar Lake.  At that time, I knew I had found my calling -- to design and build high-end custom homes. 

In 1984, my wife Lisa and I founded Moore Designs with the goal of eventually evolving into a architectural design/build firm and home remodeling company.  In the beginning, we employed a crew of three carpenters who performed framing carpentry services on a subcontracted basis.  We also designed and built homes which we sold on speculation.

During the next several years we experienced many milestones. Our first design/build contract for a new custom home was commissioned; we hired our first in-house architectural designer, and offered our first model home.  In '96, we performed our first major home renovation.   2001 was the first year we had a home published in a magazine.  And, in 2003, we designed and built our first Parade home in the MBA’s Parade Of Homes which earned honors for overall quality, interior design, as well as the coveted People’s Choice Award.  That year we also celebrated the grand opening of our first luxury condominium development.  And, in 2004, we celebrated our 20th year in business.

Today, Moore Designs employs many seasoned permanent designers, administrative staff, and construction professionals -- the majority of our team having been with us for 10-35 years. We build and remodel homes from our designs, or from designs created through other architectural firms.  Our responsive, friendly staff, and intimate office setting remain ideal for collaborating with you to produce your vision of what your home should be. Our belief in the "hands-on" approach, as well as our considerable knowledge of current building materials and methods, adds tremendous value to your custom home today that will last for generations to come.
