Custom Kitchen Island

Venecia and Mike were recommended by a friend, and we could not be happier that we chose to go with them. Every single step of the process was handled with patience, professionalism and expertise.

Communication was easy and responses prompt and thorough. They came down for a site visit and spent over an hour with us going over finishes and designs.

When it came to the actual install, they were exceptionally clean and careful as to not damage anything. They got the job done in exactly the quoted time with no surprise costs.

The final product is absolutely stunning. It is exactly what we had imagined. Their attention to detail is second to none and the quality of their craftsmanship is impeccable. Not to mention that they are very friendly and easy to work with!

I would unquestionably recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful addition to their home.

Thanks Mike and Venecia!

Kitchen and Laundry room Reno

Mike, Venecia and their team were incredible! They completed our entire kitchen and laundry room while we were on vacation and took into consideration every one of our weird requests. It's like we have a brand new house thanks to their team and we LOVE it!

Couldn't have asked for a more professional, respectful, hard working team. Would definitely recommend them for any job!

Kitchen Island and pull out drawers in cupboards

We purchased and fully renovated a 1970's side split. Kitchen was the last to be done and after numerous quotes it was not difficult to make our choice with Venecia and Mike. They are HONEST and PROFESSIONAL and provided some wonderful solutions to our lack of functional kitchen space.
As we were not replacing the original solid maple cabinets, they worked tirelessly to find a supplier who could match the style and also exact stain to the new cupboard and pull out pantry and small island that they built.
They respond when they say they say, and are very detailed in their estimate.
We are thrilled with them and the finished product!!!

Thanks again

Commercial Kitchen

Mike and Venecia worked as an awesome team when they stepped in to help with an early phase in the building of our commercial kitchen. They were above and beyond reliable for working within a scheduled time frame. The project required a lot of care at the beginning to square the foundation, and their conscientious work ensured that the rest of the framing, the trusses, the metal roof, and the doors and windows happened incredibly quickly. They also worked extremely well with my dad, who was overseeing the whole project, by taking leadership of the work at hand without excluding his overall project knowledge. I couldn't have imagined a better team, and I will recommend them 100% to everyone I know who needs carpentry work done.

Thank you for the review! We appreciate you giving us the opportunity to work on the early stages of the project too. We love the shop; but sometimes it is nice to get outside and take part in the making of the entire building, it is very different from the work we do from day to day in the shop and the office. Sometimes it just feels good to swing a hammer for a while!! :) We had a great time working with all of you, and were very pleased with the end result as well. We look forward to working with you in the future. Cheers, M&V

New laundry room

We've been working on renovating our entire home this last year, and had left the laundry room to last. The contractor we used for our kitchen and bathroom wasn't available so I turned to HomeStars to find a reliable company.

I am BEYOND thrilled that we found and we able to work with Millard Bautista Design. Professional, thoughtful, diligent, focused, creative, very talented, solution-focused, and generous is just the beginning. I truly wish I'd come across them sooner!

We were able to review our project in a 3D drawing, which was really great to really understand proportions, etc. I think was stands Mike and Venecia apart for me, is in the manner they handled a change request I had. Once the valence above the window was installed, I just wasn't comfortable on the height of it, and felt it needed to be longer to work with the lighting fixture we had selected. Within a few days, a new valence arrived and was installed before I knew it, just like that.

I will be working with them again, no doubt about that, and, if you're reading this, you need to hire them too!

All the best with your project! C

Home Renovation

We just completed a substantial renovation of our home, and we hired Millard Bautista Designs (MBD) to do the majority of our millwork including bathroom vanity, banquette seating, walk-in closet, window benches with built-in drawers, and a complex “wood cube” (eg. floor to ceiling wooden doors and wall paneling configuration in our hallway and kitchen). We are thrilled with everything they did for us. The craftsmanship is excellent, the product quality is great, and every piece looks beautiful!

Importantly, not only did the final pieces exceed our expectations, but Mike and Venecia were also an absolute pleasure to deal with; hands downs, they were the easiest people we worked with during our extensive project. They worked closely with us to figure out exactly what we wanted and truly cared about delivering finished products that would meet our high expectations. They were fairly priced, delivered on time, and were highly flexible and extremely responsive to our requests. I cannot say enough about them; we absolutely plan to use Mike and Venecia again for future work and would highly recommend them to others.

Thank you for the review! You were a real pleasure to work with, thank you for entrusting us with so many pieces and for trusting our judgement along the way. We had so much fun making your pieces and seeing the final product was definitely the highlight. The cube was challenging, but it made us think outside the box and we learnt a great deal from that portion of the project. Thank you again, and we look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Cheers, M&V

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you had a positive experience with our company. We were specially thrilled to have been able to deliver within 5 weeks considering our lead time at the time was 6-8 weeks for a small project like this. Thank you again for the opportunity to build this for you.

Custom Display Booth

We found the team at Millard Bautista Designs very easy and pleasant to work with. Not only did Mike and Venecia capture what we had wanted and imagined for our 2015 Interior Design Show display booth, but they also responded promptly to our communications and demonstrated their professionalism and helpfulness. They assisted us with custom designing a backing consisting of wooden shelves, which are removable, and mounting components to showcase our architectural product samples. They also constructed a cabinet for the front and center part of our display booth. We are very impressed and happy with the overall display, and we will definitely not hesitate to recommend others to utilize their services.

deck rebuilt

Mike and Venecia rebuilt our deck to our complete satisfaction. We had our share of renovation projects since we moved into our house since almost 15 years ago, and it was hard to recommend any of the crews that contributed to different aspects, without always having to warn about some considerable shortcomings. Not until now. We would recommend this team to anyone who's interested in high quality work from what appears to us the best in the trade, with an emphasis on detail and proper, in-time execution. Not only did they overcome some important challenges during the design phase, but they also fulfil all commitments without rushing or delaying the delivery. The price was right, and the interaction with them was not only very professional, but it was just a pleasure to deal with 2 of the best people to work on any project. Venecia's charm and proficiency in planning, managing subcontractors and tracking the progress combined with Mike's brilliant skills and refinement in design and execution are a unique combination for this wonderful team. We're committed to hire them again for a kitchen renovation planned in the near future.
