Dwell West offers design, management, and consulting services. Home is the backdrop of our lives; serving as a re-charging dock, the setting of many of life’s most meaningful events & memories, as well as the place our simplest daily routines occur. From $40 paint decisions to full home renovations, our goal is to minimize the anxiety, confusion, and mystery that is often associated with the home renovation journey. Dwell West aims to provide a service that, alone, many contractors, interior designers, and architects cannot. Dwell West is not a licensed contractor, interior design firm, or licensed architect. We simply help people through the home renovation process; if we're not friends by the end of your project, we messed up! Click the "services" tab for more information. Wherever you might be in the process, reach out! We are excited to dream with you.
As a lifelong artist, and floor plan fanatic, Christian Shappee brings a unique approach to the home renovation process. Intrigue with homes began at around age 5 years old when construction on Shappee's childhood home started. Hours of HGTV with mom (long before HGTV was cool), countless trips to Lowes & Home Depot as a family, and learning a multitude of construction skills alongside dad and grandpa, have all contributed to a love for all things home! With a decade of professional design experience in creative direction, design management, product design, and graphic design, the creative soul always returns to "home." Shappee is a proud Arizona native, and Arizona State University Sun Devil with a BSD in Industrial Design, BA in Design Management, & Minor in Sustainability, from the Barrett Honors College at ASU.
