Encompassing nearly 4,000 square feet, the John Cannon Design Center offers a multitude of vignettes displaying products from the most opulent designs in flooring to the most luxurious of bath fixtures. In one location you will find every element your home will need with samples you can see, touch and feel and licensed designers to assist you through the entire selection process. No more forays to warehouses and supply centers!

With so many options, choices and selections to be made during the construction process of your home, we find it’s easier for our clients to work with one designer throughout the entire building process. "We believe it's crucial to maintain the relationship," said John Cannon. "Our designers know the customers, and also know the homes,” he adds.

Pre-construction selections allow for a seamless transition to building your home minimizing delays due to product availability and last minute changes. Deadlines can be met, budgets aren't compromised and most importantly our customers are completely satisfied.
