About Us

We are Nick and Michelle Yegge of Heartwood Residential Design + Build. We started our design + build business because we discovered the need for tasteful and quality remodels throughout the local Bay Area. We have successfully guided many homeowners through the home improvement process. Transforming a house into a dream home is something we enjoy doing. Our focus is on helping you create your ideal surroundings in a place you call home now and into the future.

About Us

Our Story

Nick started working in the construction industry during summer vacations while in school. His interest was inevitable, it's in the family. He is a fourth generation builder, following his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him. Nick worked for several contractors and learned many skills. Notably, he framed for a high-end, custom homebuilder, where he learned the best practices across the trades from exceptional contractors. Watching closely, he learned the importance of communication, planning and a systematic approach to construction projects. Knowing he would one day own a business of the same caliber, he began acquiring the best practices of project management, processes, and workflow.

Like the generations before him, Nick developed a company that allows him to do what he loves, while bringing his knowledge, expertise, and craftsmanship to families in our community. As the business grew, Michelle came on board as a project coordinator. In addition to managing the office, she also meets with clients, and assists in design and materials selection. With her impeccable taste, and acute sense of style, Michelle has a gift for guiding clients through the process of home improvements. Between client meetings and administrative duties, you can often find Michelle traveling to showrooms and selecting samples for ongoing projects.
