I used Whiteley & Whiteley for my new home design, David was very knowledgeable of the design criteria the subdivision required and designed a unique home that complemented its surroundings. I found David to be punctual and respect both David and Diane's passion for design, quality of construction and customer care.
Thank you Whiteley & Whiteley, Dave and Dianne. We have had two projects with your firm on Twain in Walden. The first was the reason we chose you for the second. Your team's knowledge if structure, design and of how to get things done was and is impressive. And you are just fun to work along-side.
The second project, to us, was massive but with close consideration to our needs, desires and input we have a beautiful home in the community we have chosen to live. We had anticipated some structural damage but what you found and documented for me was considerable. Fixed! We are beyond pleased. Ecstatic comes to mind.
Looking forward to our next adventure.

Diane and David were awesome to work with on remodeling our master bath. They transformed it from a 1984 bathroom to a beautiful and updated room that we just love. Diane went out of her way to make certain we were happy with all stages of the remodel.
The entire room was demolished which included removing the bathtub; moving the vanity from one side of the room to the other; replacing all the tile from the floor and shower; removing linen closet and cabinets. We now have the most gorgeous bathroom with a shower that we love, custom made wardrobe, linen closet and vanity with beautiful granite countertops, new lighting, gorgeous tile and a remodel of the closet. We love our new bathroom and can't say enough good things about Whiteley and Whiteley! We would highly recommend Diane and David for your new remodeling project.
I chose Whiteley and Whiteley for the remodel of the "Escondido" home for two main reasons. First, their reputation precedes them. It was obvious from the first meeting they would be my contractor. They listened intently to my requirements and immediately had suggestions to better the end result.
Secondly, you occasionally get a premonition (some say a gut feeling) that this team belongs here. That premonition turned out to be absolutely founded.
The planning stage was smooth and understandable to the lay person, with thoughtfulness and professionalism not often seen. The Whiteleys were clear and concise with drawings, cost, and work schedules.
I found the "Whiteley Way" to fit my needs perfectly. From demo to finish, scheduling was flawless and each and every subordinate contractor was a true artisan. If minor issues arose, they were handled quickly and efficiently. It was amazing to watch this team carry out the plan with an an almost uncanny ability to "think on their feet". While cudos go to the craftsmen, the highest accolades must go to Diane and David for assembling the best of the best, and leading this project to fruition.
I'll leave the "Before and After" photos to speak for themselves, but the true result of this project is so much more than that. I got a beautiful remodel, peace of mind as to its structural integrity and longevity, but most importantly a bevy of new friends, never to be forgotten.
We asked Whiteley and Whiteley to come back and convert our attic to the ultimate leisure space, because they did such a quality custom job building our home. Their experience, knowledge and wonderful relationship with their subcontractors made the experience positive and engaging. Their design and vision for the space resulted in a Billiard room and separate movie theater that went beyond our expectations and imagination. We couldn't have worked with a better team. David and Diane Whiteley have been a wonderful experience.
We first started our work relationship with Whiteley & Whiteley during the fall of 2012. We had just moved to the area and needed some guidance picking colors and furniture for our new home. Diane would listen to my ideas and find a way to implement them while adding a designer touch. In the end, the finished product was perfection. So naturally, two years later, when we decided to add an addition to our home, we knew exactly who to call. As before, Dianne and David listened to our ideas, and soon a plan was in place to transform our backyard. They custom built our outdoor living space, picking colors, material, patterns, lights, and so much more. In the end, we were absolutely overly pleased. This company is loyal to their word, always professional, and a joy to work with. They will go above and beyond, so that in the end you are overwhelmingly pleased.
Whiteley & Whiteley designed and remodeled our kitchen, as well as designing and constructing our ramps. The project was completed in a little over a week with minimal inconvenience. This project was professionally done and the end result was a complete transformation from modern to and Asian design. We would heartily recommend Whiteley & Whiteley from conversion studies to a complete house design and construction.

Jeanne and I absolutely love our new kitchen!! Whiteley & Whiteley certainly did a magnificent job putting all of the pieces together,-everything from selecting the perfect floor tile to match the existing tile, to the awesome backsplash, granite, paint colors, and pendant lamps (you were right on and I love them!). Through efficient management of the project and subcontractors, you managed to improve our kitchen from its dull and dated appearance to a beautiful, modern, and warm space. A big thank you for your always prompt communication throughout the project. You made the remodeling process as painless as possible for us and for that we thank you.
Thank you for transforming our kitchen Diane!!! We love it, we love it, we love it!! It was our pleasure to work with you once again.
We were nervous to remodel our daughter’s bathroom to accommodate her new wheelchair but it had to be done. We chose to work with Whiteley and Whiteley because of their genuine interest in improving not just a bathroom, but our lives. From David’s thoughtful design to Diane’s attention to detail, nothing was overlooked. We were updated daily on progress and what to expect next. Above all, their interest was how to best serve our family’s needs. We now have a fully functional and beautiful bathroom for our daughter.
David and Diane recently remodeled our master bath. They ensured that we went from “old and outdated” to a beautiful and warm environment. We are so pleased we hired the Whiteley Design Group to handle our remodeling job. They were spot on in all aspects of the job. Diane’s interior design experience was simply invaluable beginning with our shopping trip to pick out the many different tiles used, vanity, paint colors and fixtures. The end result is fabulous and the walk in shower is simply beautiful!! It is clear they’ve chosen their subcontractors carefully as they all do fantastic work. From beginning to end, and all points in between, the project was efficiently and professionally managed. Moreover, David and Diane were always available to address any questions about the job. In addition, they were conscientious about managing costs as they not only kept us within our budget, but the entire job was done under budget. It was our pleasure to work with David and Diane and we look forward to our next remodeling experience with them.
David Whiteley: Creative, Thoughtful, Detailed, Experienced
It is our pleasure to recommend Whiteley & Whiteley Design as David is truly creative, thoughtful, detailed and experienced. David designed our dream home in 2008 and today we remain 100% satisfied - there is nothing we would add, change, or delete if we could do it all over again. Our waterfront home was never a simple design and included over 4000 square feet with numerous unique features. The design included a totally self contained "apartment suite" for my elderly mother and it is the ultimate mother-in-law suite - very private, yet right here with us. It is approximately 900 square feet and offers everything any luxury home would offer - a spacious layout, numerous built-ins, recessed and rope lighting, full kitchen, laundry, sitting area, huge "master" closet, linen closet, two coat closets, and walk-in shower. David also had the foresight to recommend we build for the future by ensuring my mother's suite would fully accommodate any potential future needs. We heeded his advice and David designed it to accommodate my mother in the event a wheel chair or walker were ever to become necessary. That was a blessing as she recently needed that capability. The rest of our home was also perfectly and uniquely designed. Family and guests have repeatedly applauded the open and spacious unique design, often noting there is zero wasted space.
My wife and I are detail-oriented perfectionists (probably to a fault) and David worked diligently with us to create our dream home. We know we were blessed to have found David and are confident he has the necessary skills, determination, patience and experience to also make your unique dreams come true!

Charlie and I started with a clean sheet of paper and a lot filled with hardwoods. In the end, we had a Country French dream home that is nestled among the trees, with a custom pool thoughtfully placed in the back yard next to an opulent outdoor kitchen and a casita with all the luxuries of home for our guests. We also have multiple outdoor seating areas where we can either relax after a long day or entertain friends. The design has met all of our wants and needs, exceeding our expectations. Diane and David were a pleasure to work with through all aspects of the design and construction process. We were friends with David and Diane before the project began and have an even closer relationship today.

Entering into a remodel (or building a home) can be a scary experience. Based on my recent remodel experience, I will always employ Whiteley & Whiteley Design Group for future remodeling or to build a new home. Fear of the unknown was replaced by gentle education. Fear of workmanship was supplanted by getting to know, like and trust craftsmen of integrity and quality. Whiteley & Whiteley brought value to every phase of my remodel experience. They gave me personal attention, quality workmanship and great value for my money. That's what makes them better. That's what makes them different.
David and Diane Whiteley created a perfect home for us. From incorporating our ideas in the architectural design phase; to helping us make stunning and functional interior choices; through coordinating landscape and pool design, they brought our dream to life. We were true partners, with the Whiteley's expertise enhancing our ideas for creating a comfortable lake home and guest house that maximized efficiencies and used "green" building concepts. During our year-long construction project, we were kept up to date on schedule and next steps. When possible scope changes arose, we talked through them to determine the most effective course of action. We moved into the house earlier than expected, and stayed on budget. Since completion, David and Diane have been both proactive about checking in and responsive when questions have come up. Working with the Whiteley's was a terrific experience. They truly bring their creativity, skills, and hearts into all the work they do.

David and Diane designed and built our home...always just a phone call away...they build a quality home. We became friends during this process and are still friends after the build...need we say more!
-Chip & Paula Stivers
Dan and I can't do anything but praise all of the time, hard work and patience (especially patience) that David, Diane and Jessica have afforded us this past year. There were no outrageous promises made and no requests that weren't accommodated. This team of people have done everything possible to keep this project on time in spite of illness, our changing our minds and a hurricane that put a tree into the new dining room. And their crews have been the best and the site is always clean. Thanks guys!
-Dan & Robbie Love
We totally love every square foot of our home. The building experience was a pure joy, from start to finish! We would use Whiteley and Whiteley Design Group again, if we were to build a second home. David and Diane are honest and extremely talented builders to work with and the contractors were also very professional. The quality is outstanding.
-Abe and Mary Varghese
We had built homes before and this time we were looking for someone who could not only build our home, but work with us from design concept through completion. A friend recommended Whiteley & Whiteley because they are a design/build firm. David turned our ideas into a cohesive design, encompassing all the details we requested. During construction, Diane worked closely with us to ensure that our vision for the home was realized by carefully coordinating materials, colors, etc. The products were carefully researched and my husband and I were allowed to make our decisions based on standards as well as cost. We were kept informed of our costs and budget throughout the process and are very satisfied with the financial accountability of the Whiteley team. More importantly, during the construction process, the Whiteleys became more than our builders; they became our friends.

We so enjoyed living in a Whiteley and Whiteley built home we did it twice!!! First in Walden, one of their well designed spec homes on the golf course which is a beauty… Solid design and thoughtful amenities, it sold in four days!!! Knowing the pride and integrity they build into their construction projects we did not hesitate to have them design and build our home on Lake Conroe in Grand Harbor. The design process was great! They included every aspect we could think of in a lake home, from the landscaped river beds that work with the fountain court yard in front through to the flagstone walled patio at the dock, nothing was left undone! The very best part of the process was the friendly way they worked with us. The authentic Tuscan design was meticulous down to every detail including a stoned arched wine nook and leaded glass decorative windows. They insured our satisfaction at every stage even the warranty items after move in, every issue has been addressed promptly and professionally. David and Diane build every home as if it were theirs. Their homes reflect excellence in design and execution. They are extremely proud of their work and they should be!
