Kind words from our clients
I have stained hardwoods upstairs and a porcelain tile floor downstairs, and a modern kitchen with lots of light. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks, Roger and Susan and the team at 2303 Designs for a great experience.

Working with Roger Kalhbau always means something unique. No cookie-cutter window treatments or stale ideas. Roger is able to select each rug, lamp, fabric, etc. to fit perfectly into the big picture for each room. For over 8 years I have seen Roger transform everything from tucked-away ranches to exquisite Austin floor plans into beautifully decorated,comfortable homes.
Because Susan had helped us the previous year in remodeling the small cabin that already existed on the lot we felt perfectly comfortable with her when it came time for the “big house”. She was with us from the blueprint stage all the way through to wall colors and window treatments. As this was the first home we had ever built we were novices in many areas. With Susan’s versatility and range of knowledge, she guided our selections all the way through the construction process. She poured over everything from electrical plans and roof colors; to door and custom cabinetry selections. Thanks to Susan our entry and halls have a wonderfully soft organic vine pattern etched into the stained concrete. It’s the bit of drama we wanted and it brings in the beauty of our natural setting inside the house. Thanks to Susan my husband’s vanity is the perfect height for him. And when we told Susan we did not want the usual stainless steel appliances but rather a cottage feel to our kitchen – she listened and gave us wonderful painted cabinetry to go with our selections of white appliances. The list goes on.
Our home was completed in August of 2012 after 5 1/2 months of construction. We came in on time and within budget! Much of the success of the home goes not only to our architect and builder but also to Susan as she guided us through the dozens of details and decisions we were called on to make. She is professional in every way and truly listens to her clients.
Roger’s talent is obvious, but we have remained friends and colleagues for two other important reasons. Reason number one is his integrity and the second is his sense of humor. He has been willing to work with us within our budgets which are no always very generous and we’re still smiling!
