Core Values


At Honeycomb Home Design, we stand by these core values in every relationship we encounter.

Communication

The key to any successful relationship is communication. As you can imagine, there are many moving parts in a construction project. Our goal is to communicate clearly and as often as possible with you throughout the process, so we can make sure nothing is kept in the dark! Oftentimes, we will collaborate with our clients on ideas (after all, it is your home!) and we can do this successfully through clear communication.

Integrity

We will do what we say we're going to do, when we say we're going to do it. Now say that 3x fast! If for some reason we can not commit to our promise, we will notify you right away and set a new one.

Giving Back

Our community means everything to us. Throughout the year, we actively support and donate to various causes throughout our community. We also have started the Honeycomb Gives Back Initiative, which is geared towards providing room makeovers for children with special needs.

Dedication

When we are on your project, we are giving it our all. From planning, to concept boards, to creativity and ingenuity, to being there when the paint dries and art is hung, we are dedicated to making this experience the best possible one for you.
