Specify Success

Let's get you ready for a successful home renovation!

An eight week class by interior designer Aubrey Davis and architect Craig Carney from abc modern starting in January 2023



  • It lacks function?

  • It doesn't reflect your personal style?

  • It looks like it is from another era?

  • You don't know where to start

  • You don't know how much it will cost

  • It all feels overwhelming

Does your house have a "before" that is crying out to become an "after"? Let me guess... 

In short, your space is taking from you, rather than giving to you!

With over 40 years of combined experience in design and construction

"We were so pleased with abc modern and Craig's work!  He took the time to discuss our project prior to us determining the full scope, and then walked us through many ideas and options to ensure our design worked for the specific needs we identified.  

Craig was a key part of our team and fully invested in our projects success.  He comes highly recommended!"

Typical Interior Design Services

Are you wondering how much you would pay an Interior Designer to bring you through this process?

Here is an estimate that I recently sent a client for my design services on a whole house renovation.

My services totaled over $20,000. 

Not only that, but finding an Interior Designer who truly understands residential construction can be very challenging!

         Craig started framing houses and drawing plans as a teenager. He is one of those rare architects who understands construction as well as he understands design. In addition to countless homes, he has led design on commercial projects as large as PACCAR's 200k sq.ft. distribution center, and managed his own freelance practice for 20 continuous years... and what does he do on vacation?... tour architecture. 




            Yes, I did draw a floor plan for the sleeping bags and create a schedule for the magazine quizzes at my fourth-grade sleepover. Since then there have been hundreds of residential remodels, five years as the owner of my own design firm, and some monstrous projects managed for a couple of Seattle's most famous companies... But my greatest accomplishment may still have been keeping those fourth graders in line.

"As a General Contractor who specializes in high end remodels and custom homes, Aubrey is a great value for my clients and very valuable to my company in providing detailed vital job information, while also saving me time. She has integrity, is an expert in her field, awesome to work with and my clients love working with her."

"So hit me with it... how much does all this cost?"

"I saw that your typical design services would be $20,000. Does it cost that much?"

"I saw that I'm getting eight weeks with two designers that typically charge $150/hr. The time spent in class must be worth at least $5000"


"I heard you say that you could save me from making a $3000 mistake with my tile... is it $3000?"
