WHO WE ARE
Who We Are
Meet the Dender family. We have a passion for home solution renovations, and are genuinely excited to complete remodeling kitchen design plans, kitchen remodeling programs and more. Here’s some background that explains our passion for designing and building.
Randall E. Dender (Randy) 1956-2012
Randy started building things as a child and never stopped. Tree houses and secret forts developed into real houses and remodels. Randy and his wife Peggy bought their first house while Randy was earning his degree in architecture from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The house was originally built in 1936 and it needed a few things. The kitchen countertop was only 32 inches high and covered with old, sticky linoleum. Plates and dishes had to be pried loose if left too long. There were no drawers and no dishwasher. He removed the countertop, built a row of drawers and installed a new plastic laminate countertop, butcher block of course, it was 1977! And he installed a dishwasher. (“Best money I ever spent!”) His next door neighbor saw his work and hired him to do the same thing for her kitchen. And thus, Randy’s remodeling career had begun.
After a move to Brandon, Florida and years designing commercial and residential projects, he joined forces with a master contractor and opened a design-build company.
Peggy J. Dender
Peggy and Randy were married in 1976. Peggy is the office administrator, bookkeeper, personnel manager, and check-writer. Peggy earned her degree from Indiana Business College. Over the years, she has survived countless home remodeling projects. Many of the customer service techniques, and on-site cleanliness is a direct result of Peggy’s input. Peggy enjoys her family, swimming, fishing, her dog, and crocheting.
