About Us

Meet ML Design, where we are all about making your home your DREAM home. We are born and raised in western Washington and have a passion for providing quality construction and a unique design for your home.

We launched when Mike, our owner, decided to merge his ability to fix and create, with his passion for planning and design. ML Design broke ground in early 2010 after Mike had spent several years as a union carpenter and decided to pursue his passion for working more personally with his customers to make their home renovation dreams a reality.

ML Design, brings you quality construction and renovation with a design plan to allow you to LOVE where you LIVE.

This perfect merging of quality construction with inspired, unique design is only part of what makes ML Design so unique. We offer residential and commercial remodeling and design. We believe that being invited into someone's home or work space is an unbelievable privilege and with that comes a tremendous responsibility. From our first meeting, throughout the demolition and renovation process, to our final meeting, our employees will treat your space and you with the utmost respect. We not only clean up each day throughout the project, so that your space continues to be liveable, but we also assure you that each employee will speak respectfully, and behave in a manner that is worthy of being in your home. At ML Design, our goal is to have repeat customers who come back to us whenever a project or remodel pops up, and the only way to do that is to be a company with great integrity.

We at ML Design would love a chance to work with you and your family to make your home exactly what you've dreamt it to be.


Our owner, Mike Russell, grew up in Bothell and attended Bothell High School. Mike was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles and played professionally for 9 years. After 'living the dream' Mike married Lauren and they now reside in the Bothell area and are ‘living the dream’ together. They have 2 boys who love balls, hammers, and mowing the lawn. Lauren is not only the 'brawn' behind ML Design, she is also a teacher. Mike has had the opportunity to serve on several building mission trips with his church. Mike and Lauren feel extremely blessed to be able to work personally with each and every customer. As the owner, you will see Mike on each project ML Design takes on.
