For 32 award-winning years, Strobel Design Build has been constructing the dreams in people’s lives. We have devoted our expertise and commitment to excellence to building a better Tampa Bay community. Our president and founder, Don Strobel, is a visionary in the industry, putting education at the forefront of the Strobel employee model, with 80% of the Strobel team holding national certifications. But it’s what our clients say that inspire us most, that it’s our passion for our work and commitment to client-satisfaction that gives us the leading edge.


Strobel Design Build sustains ongoing engagement with our industry peers. We are active members the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). NARI serves as the voice of the remodeling industry, providing knowledge and training to businesses industry-wide. Don has been an active Board Member with the Tampa Bay chapter of NARI – service in most of their board positions, from President of the Board to Education Chairman. Most notably, in 2009 NARI awarded Don with the prestigious Harold Hammerman Education Award. Mark Zdrojewski, Vice President of Operations, is also on the Board of Directors of NARI and serves as the Chairman of the Education Committee and also serves on the board for Habitat for Humanity.


Strobel Design Build remodels kitchens, bathrooms, coastal remodels, outside spaces, historic homes, and projects needing unique solutions. At project inception, we conduct a face-to-face consult onsite to discuss project goals. This will be followed by our presentation with plans and drawings. During the build stage, clients work with Project Designer, Jason Cathcart to select finishes, fixtures, and design elements. Jason provides clients with a truly unparalleled design experience. Jason is not your typical designer…He provides clients with concierge service. Jason not only works closely with you to determine your style and create 3-D project renderings, but he will visit different vendors to hand-select the most ideal materials, products, finishes and more to achieve your dream space. That means the days of aimlessly meandering through showrooms and feeling overwhelmed! Jason will be by your side every step of the way to ease the decision-making process and even making it fun! To keep you closely in-tune with your project’s status, you can access our cloud-based project management app, BuilderTrend, anywhere. We consistently update your custom project with schedules, documents, and progress photos – You can see the new hardwood floors that were installed yesterday or backsplash installed in the kitchen, from anywhere in the world! We also provide a 2-year warranty upon completion of projects to ensure your utmost satisfaction!


At Strobel Design Build, we cultivate friendships. As Don believes, “Friends are clients and clients are friends.” Holding true to our values, we have maintained some of the same clients today that we first had 25 years ago, which have even translated to our repeat customers that we value so highly.


  • “We hired Strobel Design Build for two projects: 1. Rebuild an enclosed sunroom into an open front porch (Fall of 2012); 2. Rebuild/remodel kitchen (currently in progress). We choose Strobel Design Build for the rebuild/remodel of the kitchen after the excellent job on the rebuild of the front porch. In both cases, Don Strobel sat down with us to discuss the design of both projects, took time to discuss material options, and gave us a schedule regarding each step of the process. He listened to our expectations and assisted us in fine-tuning the details that fit within our budget. Don Strobel’s experience and knowledge was invaluable when finalizing the details on both projects. Due to the fact that our house was built in the 1930s, adjustments were made as needed when structural issues arose. Don is hands-on and checks on the work of his workers/subcontractors on a continual basis. It is the expectation of Don Strobel that all workers/subcontractors are professional, courteous, efficient, and provide high-quality workmanship. In addition, the area is cleaned after each day of construction. The front porch is beautiful and we have received many compliments by the neighbors. The kitchen rebuild/remodel is exceeding our expectations. We are extremely pleased with the workmanship and professionalism of Strobel Design Build and would highly recommend Don Strobel and Strobel Design Build for any construction project.” –Dave & Mary H.


  • “October 2013 is the most recent of several projects for which we have hired Strobel Design Build. We live out of state and have relied on Don’s expertise over a number of years. The project was to tile the walls of a studio in our garage apartment to remedy long-term moisture problems. As always, the debris was hauled away and the entire lower apartment and bath were professionally cleaned.” –Taffney S.
