From Janeanne Rockwell-Kincanon (Click here to see the review on Google)
My spouse and I have a long-standing and overwhelmingly positive relationship with Kirk Design & Construction. Early in their business, we hired them for a couple of projects, and we were impressed with their enthusiasm, expertise, and integrity. We have since contracted with them for three major projects in the last half-dozen years.
In all cases, Emma’s designs address the needs and desires we had for the spaces. We own a modest house, and Emma is expert at finding underutilized space to make the house’s existing footprint work effectively. She incorporates our broad ideas with her inspired concepts and building knowledge. She is very responsive to design feedback.
Joel provides excellent management of construction projects. He hires employees and subcontractors who work to high technical standards and who are trustworthy. There is virtually no downtime once a project begins: all materials are on site and subcontractors are scheduled. His project timelines are accurate; our first major project was scheduled for seven weeks, and it was on track until some unforeseen complication in the final week delayed the completion only a few days. He also communicates well, keeping us informed of progress and next steps. The worksite is always organized and clean, and they are always respectful of our space, privacy, and time.
We trust Joel and Emma so very much. We love their commitment to transforming spaces with beautiful and functional design, quality materials, solid construction, and attention to details. They are also people of great integrity and kindness.

“Done on budget and one day early! I contacted several remodeling companies and the prices were all very similar. However, when I met with Emma and Joel the decision was made. Emma has gathered materials that give you the opportunity to create your own unique bathroom, without being overwhelmed with choices. She was enthusiastic, and creative, but did not hesitate to let me know her opinion if I asked. Joel was very good at explaining how everything would work, the technical aspects of the items in their suite of bathroom materials and fixtures, and he was very clear about the cost and the time involved. I had one person doing all but the electrical and plumbing and Russell was not only great at his job, but friendly and always good about letting me know what was happening next. The final product is AMAZING! Even the city inspectors were commenting on the quality of the tile work, and the shower is unbelievably beautiful, but so is the floor, toilet, sink, cabinet, etc. All the items are top quality. Emma and Joel have done an amazing job putting together design, function and the right people. I would definitely use them again.”

“We had been thinking of remodeling our master bath for sometime. Decided to check it out,we were very clueless to cost and time involved. After checking out Kirk design and construction on the website and reading reviews,we went in to the showroom. After a couple of meetings with Joel and Emma we were pretty sure we would be in the right hands. All was explained very carefully and scheduled. Emma helped us with picking finishes and fixtures, I went outside the box with some choices and Emma helped me with that. Once the remodel started we were very pleased with Russell the carpenter, he’s a perfectionist and very skilled. When our tile went in the shower and on the floor, we couldn’t believe the beauty of his work! No waiting for plumbers and electricians,this went exactly on schedule. Russell cleaned his way out everyday, and told us what was happening ahead of time,no surprises. The last week of our remodel Emma gave birth, it didn’t slow the process at all, in fact Joel was here the morning after to check on our job. And our bath was done a few days ahead of schedule. These people are a team that knows their stuff! We will be having them do our 2nd. bath. And my new bath is a beautiful room. We highly recommend Joel and Emma Kirk and Russell.

You asked for it; you’ve got it! Our KirkBath clients have been asking us when we will apply the KirkBath concept to kitchens…and the answer is now. Kirk Kitchen uses the same principles of systematization to provide a high quality, fast, and cost-effective kitchen remodel.
We know our clients like to “go green”, and many of you have expressed interest in LED bulbs, so we now offer an LED upgrade for each of our Signature and Expanded Option light fixtures. We did the research and comparison shopping for you, to find LED’s that are dimmable, with high lumen output and a color temperature that is warm (to complement skin tones) without being overly yellow…all while being a good value.
We recently introduced medicine cabinets as an in-stock Signature KirkBath option. To celebrate, we’re pleased to offer one free Signature medicine cabinet with every KirkBath contract of at least $12,000 signed on or before April 1, 2016. These medicine cabinets match our vanity cabinets, include three adjustable glass shelves, ply-core box (no particle board!), soft-close hinges, and waterproof interior veneer, and are made in the NW by DeWils Custom Cabinets. In many bathrooms, placement over the toilet, or on a side-wall next to the vanity works well.
Offer includes one Signature style cabinet, knob and installation.
We’ve been busy adding new finishes and fixtures to the KirkBath collections, some of which are shown at right. We tested many tubs before finally settling on the tub shown to add to our line up. This tub is very sturdy, with an easy-clean high-gloss coating over fiberglass-reinforced acrylic. It offers a more-traditional aesthetic, and a medium-height apron for a balance between easy step-in and bathing submersion.
Our new 24×12 large-format tile works on shower walls or the floor. It’s a dense, tough through-body porcelain. I love its limestone look and texture, evoking an old French farmhouse.
One of our new sconce lights features a uniquely beautiful finish called “Winter Gold”. It looks like a patina-ed nickle with softly gold undertones. It works well paired with nickle finishes on the other fixtures in the room, but provides an interesting warm note in the focal area of the vanity sconce.
Come check out our new showroom displays! We have cabinets, counters, tubs, tile, and much more on display. We’re located at 728 NW 4th St, Corvallis OR 97330. Drop-in hours are Thurs. & Fri. from 11:00 am – 5:30 pm, and other weekdays & times by appointment. Our KirkBath service area extends from Eugene to Salem, and surrounding areas. Customer parking is located behind the showroom… just pull through our driveway.
We’re pleased to welcome Christy Farm to Kirk Design and Construction! Christy brings a wealth of experience to her position as bookkeeper and administrative assistant. We look forward to her assistance and good cheer helping us seize 2016! : )
Just in time for Fall, we’ve re-freshed our line-up of fixtures and finishes. Our new additions include a full suite of oil rubbed bronze fixtures, new field tiles, and additional accent tile bands. Visit our KirkBath website for all the details or stop by the showroom (map)!
Introducing Buttermilk: our newest KirkBath Signature Caesarstone Countertop Color Option! Our Signature Collection represents our best value options. These options have short lead times and are designed to coordinate well with one another. They’ll help you create a beautiful, durable bathroom, maximize your return on investment, and allow us to complete the job as soon as possible. Our goal for the Signature Collection is making the selection process quick and easy.
We also recently received samples of the latest Caeserstone quartz counter colors! They include many options with marbling, as well as a new “Concrete” collection that features a softly honed finish, rather than polished. This matte finish would look great in a kitchen where a casual, early feel is desired. If you’d like to check them out, please stop by our showroom Th-Fri 11-6 (or other times by appointment).
