I have designed and worked in the construction industry for over thirty years. I have been designing and selling kitchens for DDK since 2006. From plumbing to landscaping to high-end kitchens, I understand the building process from top to bottom. I have learned to measure twice and then measure one more time just to be sure.

My strength is that I listen to my clients and effectively integrate their ideas into my designs. I work with the cabinet makers and the carpenters in the field to make sure their dreams and desires come out as planned. I have been designing theatrical sets since college, so I know how to think like a carpenter. My projects go well because I am very hands-on and spend a lot of time in the field making sure all goes well.

My goal is to provide clients with a kitchen or living space that exceeds their expectations in its beauty, warmth, and functionality while accommodating today’s busy lifestyle.

I believe finding the perfect balance between form and function is my most important responsibility to my clients. I am also a songwriter, musician, and actor and can be seen performing across the Chicago area.

customer reviews:

Thank you DDK. I complained — you listened!!! Tim Kough was every bit professional and did an outstanding job addressing my concerns above and beyond my expectations.  Lynn M, Lake Forest

I have been working with Tim for 6 years. His projects go great because of his attention to detail. He measures twice and then checks one more time before we cut.  Rob K, Wilmette
