Who We Are
About Us

DK Design Build is a custom residential design-build firm serving Greater Indianapolis.  Founded by Debra Klinger, DK Design Build offers thoughtful and creative space planning and design coupled with quality construction, across a wide spectrum of architectural styles.  From Craftsman to contemporary, mid-century modern to urban farmhouse, we are known for the kind of high quality construction and materials that people tend to associate with the past, while being fully versed in utilizing the latest building techniques, technology and materials.  Our process begins with a careful evaluation of our client's goals, dreams, and lifestyle needs. From there, we are able to propose creative solutions and work together enabling homeowners to make informed choices about their project scope, materials, budget and construction methods.  From the beginning phases of dreaming about your space, to the final clean-up and move-in, DK Design Build is committed to lessen your stress and enliven your space.  

The cornerstone of DK Design Build is the over two decade (mostly happy) very loving marriage of Roger & Debra Klinger.  With over 15 years of building experience, Debra will share her wisdom with you of knowing where to spend and where to save on your home remodel or new construction project.  She specializes in spacial planning, creative solutions and the selection of  timeless materials within budget. Valuing a high level of communication, Debra is committed to sticking with you from start to finish.   Roger is the construction manager, keeping schedules on task and tradesmen in order, anticipating the next steps. He has an eagle eye for ensuring the highest quality workmanship.

At DK Design Build we will listen, get to know how you live, and will be responsive to your individual needs and style preferences. We are passionate, creative, flexible, and strive to create a  highly personalized experience for each of our clients. We will steer you toward long-term decisions, and will help you be proactive and forward-thinking to avoid passing trends.

While honoring the original architecture of your home, DK Design Build will transform it into a place you are ecstatic to come home to each day.
