Wish you loved your home as much as you love your hood?

It's no surprise that once DC area homeowners discover the OPaL aesthetic, they want it for their own. But you needn't move into one of our For Sale homes to have it. From kitchens to sunrooms and whole-house renovations, the beautiful lines and meticulous attention to detail of an OPaL renovation can be yours, using our architect or your own. Give your home the peace of mind (and slice of "wow") that comes from our experienced team.

With OPaL Custom Homes, Renovations & Additions, there’s a method to our magic.


First, we listen. The OPaL Custom process begins with a complimentary consultation where we dive into your vision of what your new home or addition should be.

Once we’re working together, we’ll co-create a design agreement which will guide the conceptual design. Already have an architect? Great, we’ll happily work with them through the remaining stages.

“OPaL not only builds beautiful homes that are thoughtfully designed and constructed, but they operate with unprecedented professionalism and pride in their craftsmanship.


Our experience has been the BEST, and coming from an experienced interior designer, I didn't know I could be "wowed" on the subject I study daily.”
