Satterberg Design | Build: Sandpoint's full-service design-build firm By Jillian Chandler
Husband and wife John Satterberg and Brandy Hovie-Satterberg are the proud owners of Satterberg Design | Build and Layered Fine Homewares here in Sandpoint.
From a young age, both Brandy and John grew up around construction sites; John in a car seat traveling to job sites on the weekends with his dad, who is a construction lender, while Brandy would accompany her dad, an excellent carpenter, to work. John began his career in construction working for a production home builder in 2005. He managed two subdivisions totaling 108 homes built before founding Satterberg Construction Corporation in 2006. As Satterberg Construction Corporation, they have built over 60 homes, renovated several homes, and purchased, sold and developed vacant lots and land.
Brandy, who holds her Principal Brokers license, began her career in real estate sales in 2009 and has been involved in over 300 transactions. Upon moving to Sandpoint, she felt called to use her skills and experience in a different capacity. Over the many years working side by side with her husband, she has designed and made all selections for Satterberg’s spec home builds and assisted clients, friends and family with selections and projects, and managed numerous renovations. She loves the creative process and sharing her amazing skills and ability with others.
After coming to Sandpoint for a family vacation in June of 2020, and driving across the Long Bridge on that beautiful summer day, the couple knew this was the place they wanted to call home. Within days, they were already planning their move. “We like to say that Sandpoint brought us here, not the other way around,” Brandy reflects. They have lived in Sandpoint for the past two-and-a-half years.
Earlier this year, the couple opened Satterberg Design | Build, a DBA of their parent company, Satterberg Construction Corporation. “John and I love to create and to channel inspiration into something physical and tangible. We love turning ideas into reality and figuring out how to do this and why. We love to push the limits of what we believe is possible. We love the relationships that we create. We are very blessed for the career that we have and for the risks we take and for the lessons learned and to be learned,” Brandy affirms. “The reward is in the journey for us.”
Their services offered include, but are not limited to, custom renovations, custom builds, interior and exterior design—including the largest and smallest details as well as offering the furnishings, homewares, beautiful books, fine jewelry, artistry chocolate and other thoughtfully selected gift options that they carry in their downtown Sandpoint storefront/studio, Layered Fine Homewares. “Come check it out,” Brandy encourages. “Christmas is right around the corner.”
John and Brandy invite you to stop by, say hi, and let them help you realize your design and build dreams.
