Karen Sedwick

Karen joined the Metke Remodeling Design team in January of 2020. She brought with her 16 years of design build experience that she acquired by working with another local design build firm. She first became interested in the design industry when she bought her first house. She found herself daydreaming about all the updates and changes she wanted to make, which sparked the desire for a career change. It was shortly after she graduated from the University of Portland with a Finance degree that she decided to go back to school at Portland Community College to pursue Interior Design. From there she worked alongside local interior designers until she branched out into the design build sector. “I wanted to get a better understanding of how the homes were built, and increase my knowledge of rough-ins and framing”.

Her favorite part of the design process is being able to provide knowledge and expertise to the clients. “I love hearing “I can’t believe how great the project turned out” from the clients, “did you expect it was going to turn out this great?” and the answer is always yes! It brings a sense of satisfaction to hear the clients recognize they couldn’t have done it alone. I enjoy bringing value and great ideas to the table”. Karen enjoys working on projects of all different design styles. She says “Good design surpasses any one style, however, I would love the opportunity to do some more contemporary projects!”
