David Radtke Design

Specializing in unique solutions for your home


Hello, I’m David Radtke. As a designer, builder and writer, I produced a myriad of projects, some shown here, as a Senior Editor for The Family Handyman Magazine and as a freelancer for American Woodworker Magazine along with several special interest publications. My background in art and architecture plus years of experience in the building trades as a residential design/build contractor have given me a unique perspective in design and construction.

    If you have a special project you want for your home, from a piece of unique furniture to a kitchen remodel, contact me and I’ll personally work with you from beginning drawings to the finished product.

    Currently I am doing both custom design/build work for residential clients and freelance writing and designing for magazines. My portfolio includes built-in bookcases, custom furniture, cabinetry, outdoor projects, porches and computer-aided plan drawings for remodeling projects.

    On this website you can view examples of the projects I’ve designed and built to get a feel for the variety of work and styles I create. Just peruse my site using the navigation bar at the top of the page. Please email when you’re thinking about planning your next home project .

Good design is aptly identifying the need and then creating the best possible solution.
