Jessica Bell

Interior Designer | Owner

I have been specializing in kitchen and bathroom remodels for the past 15 years. With degrees in interior design and in project management, my role is to guide you throughout the remodel process, including all aspects of design, including material selection.

It is important that your space reflect your personal style and what you envision, while also being functional for how you wish to utilize your new space. By asking questions, listening to your wishes, showing you design, color and material options, we can collaborate on a design tailored to you, that you will love and enjoy. I look forward to working with you on your remodel project!

Outside of business, I enjoy Pilates, traveling when I can and spending time with my family, little Jaxon, and soon to come Isla & Hudson, my two new Abyssinian kittens who were born this year.

On a side note, you may notice I smile a little differently. I have had Bell’s Palsy (partial facial paralysis) for the past few years, so please ignore my extra winks on occasion.

Brian Collins

Owner

My role in this incredible team, is to provide you with the best people, and to make sure you have the best experience possible. My general business philosophies all center around three key points: customer experience, design should be easy and fun, and process.

We know Customer experience is critical to our success. I know if you have great experience, you might tell two or three people. Conversely, if you have a poor experience, you are more likely to tell 15 or more people. I want you to have an amazing experience – period.

Design should be fun and easy. Fact is, remodel project can be very stressful. They can be expensive and very disruptive to your everyday life. We want to ensure you are engaged, informed, and under construction for the absolute least amount of time. We want to get you back to your normal routine and into your new space as quickly as possible.

Lastly, process is so important to me as it’s really the glue that will make your project as success. Not to worry, we got this part and we’re happy to share our process with you, step-by-step, throughout your project. We love it when our customers are informed.

In all, I have 15 years of design and project management experience. While most of this experience is formally in the commercial side of our industry in store development, to a certain extent, I have always been involved in residential projects. Residential design is a personal passion and one of my key reasons for co-founding NOR Design & Construction.

Outside of our business I like to stay busy and have many passions in life. As time is limited, most of my extra energy is dedicated to traveling with my spouse and dog – Jaxon, motorcycling around the beautiful PNW, photography, and anything that involves design and art.

Jaxon

CSO (Chief Security Officer)

Jaxon has a very important role at NOR Design & Construction. His 10 years of experience and 5.5lb stature, makes him the perfect candidate to oversee our security. He’s always on high alert (when not taking a nap) to passersby’s, mail and amazon deliveries, and keeps a close eye on the clock, especially around breakfast and dinner time.

Our people, process, and quality is what sets us apart.
We look forward to working with you on your remodel project!

This was our first custom home remodel and Jessica from NOR design delivered an inspiring design. The entire process felt way too easy as she guided us through the many choices we had to make once we had settled on a design concept. She walked us through options big and small, like sourcing from a custom Italian cabinet maker. We are already planning additional updates to our bathrooms and entry, and we will definitely be calling Jessica when we are ready.

Craig & LindaInspiring Design

Jessica from the NOR team was very easy to work with, quickly coming out and taking complete measurements of our entire house. Then developing multiple layouts and 3D renderings to help focus our ideas into a final design with a comprehensive quote. She and her team are amazing and we look forward to planning out the construction phase with them.

NicholasAmazing!

NOR Design & Construction was wonderful to work with for both our kitchen and bathroom projects. Jessica was thoughtful in her questions, making sure to capture the style and feel we wanted for our home. She was great about bringing up functional changes to make our home easier for us to age in place. We will absolutely use NOR Design and Construction again!

David & TeriWonderful!

The best, most outstanding experience with NOR design and construction! If you are planning on having you house remodeled, any room in your house check out this company. I did not know much about construction and how complex it was to put my house back in shape. NOR and Jessica’s knowledge made me understand all that was involved, walked me through step by step of the project and also, so important, time lines. I will never have any other contractor working in my house besides NOR and Jessica at the helm!
