Desert Homes Development, Inc. (DHDI) has a proven success strategy for high-end remodeling.  Our definition of high-end refers more to the client’s expectation of high quality, rather than the price of the job or the value of the home.  We place the quality of the completed project above every other aspect of the job.  DHDI will always try to meet our clients needs to meet completion deadlines or budgets, but never by cutting corners.  DHDI uses subcontractors who are experts in their fields.  Most are small business owners; most principals work on the jobsite with their crews.  We limit the number of projects in order to give personal attention to every job.

We have completed remodeling projects in the following communities: 
  • Scottsdale:  McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale Country Club, Gainey Ranch, The Boulders, Arcadia, and many other locations
