Very thorough plans for the design and construction plan for our business building expansion. Always had quick responses and accurate timeline for the project plan.
— Jaclyn from Menomonee Falls, WI
If it wasn’t for Jerrica, we would have never even started our kitchen remodel! She broke down what felt overwhelming and complex into a manageable timeline and to-do list.
— Kristi from Fox Point, WI
Jerrica has a wonderful sense of design, and blends it so well with your personal tastes and sensibilities.
— Craig from Oak Creek, WI
Jerrica is creative, passionate, and a delight to work with. She executes projects on time and is able to scale her designs to fit any budget. Her knowledge and expertise has been so helpful as we navigate remodeling our first home. No project is too big or too small — I know that we will be customers of Jerrica’s for many years to come!
— Erin from Glendale, WI
 
We brought Jerrica on as our designer to help us with our new construction home and to translate our style and ideas into our future home. We are very happy with Jerrica’s attention to detail, beautiful style and the way she communicates. I highly recommend Jerrica for any projects you may have, whether it is a full scale new build like ours, remodeling, or even just a new design for a room in your home!
