Meet Sandra Bahrmasel

For JM Design Builders’ owner, Sandra Bahrmasel, the journey to starting a design + build firm was not a straight line. After college, she obtained her Masters in Counseling and Education. This degree has served her well in her current field as it helps to facilitate various relationships with clients and trades. After a brief career as a teacher she undertook a major home renovation and the rest is history.


The building process was so rewarding, Sandra decided to buy, renovate and sell homes for a living. After receiving her contractor's license, she opened her own firm and started doing the work that she realized she was born for. Her career as a house flipper was short-lived because word traveled fast and suddenly people were asking her to remodel and create new homes. 

Over the past 25 + years, Sandra has built, remodeled and renovated many new houses, offices and apartment buildings.  One thing remains the same - Sandra absolutely loves what she does and finds working with homeowners throughout the design/build process especially rewarding.


When Sandra is not working hard on her latest project, she loves spending time with her husband, children and four granddaughters. She is active in her community and even spearheaded the creation and maintenance of a gazebo in her hometown of Glencoe. 


Accountability throughout the design and build process

Sandra "babysits" each project. This means that she is often on site which allows her to anticipate and resolve issues fast.

Deep investment in the success of your project

For Sandra, every project is personal. This means that you will benefit from her experience and insights into what will and will not work in your home.

A single team of talented professionals

Sandra's team of experienced and trusted trade professionals deliver high quality craftsmanship that consistently exceeds expectations.

Kind Words

"Sandra has completed 2 projects for us and is in the process of finishing a third, a new sunroom. When we purchased our home, it needed a lot of updating. We worked with Sandra to remodel the kitchen and bathroom and install new hardwood flooring. We are thrilled with the result. It was exactly what we wanted it to be. That's why we asked her to come back and remodel our master bathroom.


Not only is Sandra’s team phenomenal, but she is very hands-on which we appreciate. She is on site at least once a day to check on the progress and keeps me informed."
