History

In March 2004, Dayton Amundson and Mary Maertz, formed Dayton Home Designs, Inc. As their business increased, Laurie Siebert joined the firm early in 2010. Their philosophy is to listen intently to their customers, provide valuable insight and available options, and then educate and assist them during the planning, design and construction stages of their projects. The company prides itself in staying current with design trends and providing customized designs for individuals and builders. Project size ranges greatly and addition and remodeling projects are also a part of our scope of work. As of October 2018, Mary has retired.

Dayton’s career in home design spans over 35 years.  He began with an interest in contemporary homes, but his designs over the past decade turned to include more historical styles, including updated versions of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie-style homes and authentic European cottage-style homes for modest suburban lots. His goal is to put together an innovative, livable floor plan designed specifically for each client’s lifestyle.
Dayton’s career began during his high school years, when he designed his first new home for his first client.  While attending college he was employed as a designer for a large custom home designing firm in Minneapolis.  His career continued in the home design field and included extensive hands-on construction experience while he was employed as a construction manager for a large home building and development company.  Dayton started his own firm in 1998 and has provided custom home designs for individuals and contractors through-out eastern Wisconsin.

Laurie received her degree in Computer Aided Drafting & Design from Gogebic Community College in Ironwood, Michigan.  Job opportunities brought her to the Fox Valley where she’s worked as a designer for 25 years.  She’s touched many aspects of the designing process, including architectural, civil, structural and presentation type drawings.  The projects range from smaller office buildings to multiple story apartment complexes.  Her interest in residential design was always her main interest, so working at Dayton Home Designs, Inc. has allowed her to be more involved with fulfilling the wants and needs of home owners on a more personal level.
Mary retired in October 2018.
