We have worked with Sweeney Designbuild for projects big and small. Their work is beautiful and of the highest quality. They have helped us with small design projects, with paint color selection, and they are always right with their ideas! Having people in your space working on projects can sometimes be a bit stressful. The folks with Sweeney Designbuild are kind, courteous, and lovely. I would work with them again and again.


The Sweeney crew were amazing to work with. Throughout the whole construction process, we always felt that Shawn was on our side. He was totally transparent with the budget and efficient with the timeline (despite weeks of rain delays, the construction basically finished exactly when Shawn said it would at the outset). He kept us involved and informed about the process as it unfolded and helped us make design decisions (tolerating our quirks and at-times strange preferences!). The SDC crew and all the sub-contractors they brought into the job were professional, clearly took pride in their what they did, and produced quality work. We loved working with them and have been recommending them to all our friends—trustworthy, reliable, and in tune with their clients' desires.


We hired Sweeney DesignBuild for the complete design and construction of our new home. Shawn and his whole company were always professional and courteous. The design process was collaborative. Shawn and his team worked closely with us, listened carefully and suggested enhancements through the whole design and construction process. We have built 4 homes and this house is our best built home. It has not had a single issue in nearly 5 years. We lived in Maryland during the design and build process and Shawn was always easy to work with. We had weekly phone calls or skype meetings from his office or from the site. We are now adding a room over our garage and a second standalone garage and will be working with Shawn through the whole process. We highly recommend Sweeney DesignBuild to everyone.


If you’re looking for the top professionals in the area, look no further than SBD. From planning, through trips to decide on materials, through construction, then clean up, these guys are A-1. Throughout the process, I was extremely well taken care of—-none of my concerns was too small. But where this crew really shines is in their work. Top quality carpenters, top quality sub-contractors (plumbing, electric, etc.); everyone was exceptionally polite and conscientious. And they really did get the job done on time! It was like watching a dance the way the crews seamlessly work their parts of our project around the timing of all the other parts. The finished project is amazing!

““Sweeney DesignBuild designed and built a freestanding roof over our cooking deck and redesigned our front porch and entryway. The staff and craftsmen are of the highest integrity and pricing was honest and open. The end results exceeded our expectations, which were quite specific. The attention to detail and professionalism were 5 out of 5 and an excellent rating is well deserved. It is a year later and we are still extremely pleased with the results.


"What an absolute gift to be able to work with you and your team. I see my dream house coming true and I am so appreciative of our wonderful collaboration!"


“Thank you so much for all your work toward our project. Your vision for the spaces exceeded our expectations and the result, now that it’s done, have astounded us! We are thrilled at how it’s turned out. Thank you for everything!”

 “All we can say is: fabulous… three times! Usually at the end of a build project you say “Next time we’ll do it differently or with another builder”. Not with Shawn and his quality team. They have designed and built three projects for us. Design, new construction or remodeling, they do it all. We started the process with a spatial lifestyle design and several meetings later had a plan that worked for us. We were delighted every time.”

"Unique. Awesome. Perfect. Sophisticated. Gorgeous. Well-designed. Superb partnership. Terrific team of professionals. Fun. Lots of laughter. Inventive. Elegant. Outstanding design. Spot on execution. Deft redirects. Collaborative spirit. Timeless beauty. Balanced spirit of honoring old bones with new construction. Boundless appreciation of you and your team. Over-the-top delivery of my dreams. Over the moon appreciation."


“I’m working from home a lot now that the semester is over. My office is upstairs on the South side of the house so I’m a bit removed from the action, but I wanted to say how awesome and kind of sweet it is to hear people laughing from time to time while they’re working, even with all the rain we’ve been having which, to me, seems like it would make things miserable out there. You really have talented and remarkable guys on the team, and I’m very happy they’re the one building our addition.”

I highly recommend Sweeney Designbuild! They were unbelievably creative in upgrading the functionality of our mudroom and laundry area and it also looks gorgeous. They also finished the room over our garage and it is now the favorite room in our home. Everyone is very professional and fun to work with. We enjoyed working with them during every part of the process. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.


“We are so pleased with the results of our kitchen and master bath renovation. They are now spaces that are not only beautiful but suit out lifestyle better. A sincere thank you for your expert design assistance. I enjoyed working with you through the design build process. To me, this really is the best model to ensure a seamless realization of the design. Your team was excellent to work with and are an extension of SDB’s philosophy of giving the client what they want.”

Working with Shawn Sweeney and his team was one of the best experiences I have ever had!
From taking my vision with scraps of magazine clips and pen and ink renderings of “general concepts”, Shawn and his team worked with me to design and build a home that was even better than I imagined.
Shawn was well organized and kept the project moving forward, providing me with direction about making decisions along the way. I felt guided and never pressured.
Shawn and I worked closely to keep within my budget. He and his team were professional and warm. He, Dave and Austin made me feel as if I was their only client and only project.
I recommend Sweeney Designbuild highly!
I am now considering a guest house on the land and Shawn and his team will be my first call when it comes time to design and build it.
