WHERE DESIGN, BEAUTY AND LIFE MEET

Compass Design Build, LLC has turned dream home concepts into reality since 2010.

While focusing on West St. Louis County, Chesterfield, Wildwood and the surrounding communities, Pete and Jennifer Uetrecht are passionate about creating unique and amazing experiences for every homeowner. Signature elements built into each home include Universal Design and expert exterior and interior design throughout.

While Pete focuses on the daily management and technical aspects of construction, Jennifer guides clients gracefully through the design and selection phases. Jennifer developed the Compass Homeowner’s Handbook which walks clients through every phase of the construction and design process. Ask about the handbook when you contact us.

“As a small family-owned company our clients work directly with us, the owners, from concept to completion of each project.”

From small renovations and large additions, to the design and construction of luxury homes, this powerful couple and their team of long-term employees takes the hands-on approach to new levels. They focus on working with each homeowner to make the home building experience more than pleasant.

OUR VISION

We strive to deliver design excellence, top quality product and craftsmanship, and superior customer service. We demand the
same quality and craftsmanship from our subcontractors whether we are completing a $20,000 bath remodel or building a $2
million-dollar custom home. Compass Design Build, LLC is the St. Louis choice for home building and remodeling.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to craft inspiring spaces to enrich the lives of our clients while delivering the best design, quality and service.

“and whatever you do in word or in deed, do in the name of the Lord …”
