Welcome to our very first blog post! Were so excited that you are here and reading our very first attempt. Please bear with us, we are learning here!
Let's start off simple and talk a little bit about Align Home Design, who we are, and why we are here.
Meet Greg MacDonald and
Co-Founders of Align Home Design.
We are both originally from Ontario, where we grew up and attended Loyalist College in Belleville Ontario. We graduated and obtained our diploma's in the 3 year, Architectural Technology program. We both were intrigued by the city of Edmonton and not long after graduation we made Edmonton our new home. (Separately I might add!)
Greg, The Master of Building Things, and Driven Entrepreneur.
Greg LOVES to build things and you will almost always see him keeping busy with one job or another. Whether it be building a deck on the weekend or volunteering to build a playhouse for a child with the Make a Wish Foundation. He brings a great mixture of experience to the team, both in design and the hands on construction aspects of the industry. The creation of Align Home Design is allowing him to take all he has learned in the construction industry and be able to express it and use it to help people design their dream homes.
Cassie, Challenge Seeker, and Creative at Heart.
Cassie LOVES design, specifically home design. She has always been passion about it, even from a young age. Helping people create the space that they will spend most of their time in is the ultimate challenge and feeling of satisfaction. Home design is like putting together a puzzle, taking a client's wish list, inspirations and dreams and creating a work of art, that people get to live in! Cassie brings years of custom home design experience to the team and the creation of Align Home Design is allowing her to check off some exciting boxes off her bucket list!

Align Home Design - Why are we different? Why should you call us?
After working in the home design and building industry for over 10 years, both Greg and Cassie noticed a missing niche in the home design market, and that is where the idea of Align Home Design started. We have built this company around a few very particularly important aspects that we feel set us apart in the Edmonton home design market.
Communication, Communication, Communication!
This is one of the most important values at Align Home Design. When thinking about the biggest investment you will make in your life (designing and building your dream home) is there a such thing as too much information and communication? We think not! You can expect that we will do everything in out power to ensure that you have no bad surprises during your time working with us.
As many of you may already know, we work with estimates/quotes for all of our jobs. They are all based off estimations and can change, and for that reason we communicate with you through the entire process. We will always ensure we are on track with your estimate, and if not, you will know about it before we proceed further. During the entire process, we are open, honest and communicate with you about absolutely everything! No email is too long, there is no such thing as too many phone calls, and you can change your mind as much as you want - always know that when that happens, we will openly communicate with you about what that means to you when it comes to budget, time line and anything else.
Design vs. Building Experience.
If you have spent anytime in the home design industry in Edmonton, you know that when someone works for a typical design and drafting company you NEVER get to leave the office to see the build process of your designs. We are proud to have hands on building experience that complements our experience in design. Our team is perfectly balanced with Greg having a large amount of building experience and Cassie having spent most of her career learning the ins and outs of custom home design. Being able to work together and bounce ideas off one another, we feel is the perfect balance. Align Home Design prioritizes getting out to site, seeing what we are drawing and constantly learning and evolving.
