Owner, Mike Hill
I was born and raised in northern Meridian, back when it was mostly corn and wheat fields. The farmlands I played and worked in as a boy are now covered by subdivisions and homes, many built by me (with mixed emotions!). I truly love Idaho.
I worked summer construction jobs as a teenager, then majored in Construction in college. I finished my Bachelor’s in Construction Management in ’98 and worked for various residential and commercial construction companies in Texas for a few years. The first chance I got, I came back home to Idaho to work as a superintendent for a custom- and production-home builder. I "built" dozens of fine homes and honed my project management and customer service skills.
In 2005 I founded Clear Creek Homes LLC, building and remodeling homes in the Treasure Valley. Running my own business changed me in many ways, but above all, I developed an obsession with customer service and satisfaction. Building is no fun with unhappy customers (I learned that the hard way in my early years). On the flip-side, there are few things I value more than happy customers, so I made customer satisfaction my top priority.
After a five-year sabbatical, of sorts, with the Idaho Army National Guard I re-branded as CCH Design | Remodel in 2013, focused exclusively on remodeling.
I take great pleasure in watching customers’ eyes light up when we get the layout just right during a design session, or catching them admiring their new cabinets or granite countertop. But the real payoff is seeing my customers around town, who smile and treat me like an old friend, and tell me they still love the work we did for them.
Meet The Team
I was born and raised in northern Meridian, back when it was mostly corn and wheat fields. The farmlands I played and worked in as a boy are now covered by subdivisions and homes, many built by me (with mixed emotions!). I love Idaho.
After earning a Construction Management degree and building homes in Texas and back home here in Idaho, I founded Clear Creek Homes LLC in 2005. I built and remodeled homes for a few years, then served five years with the Idaho Army National Guard. I re-branded as CCH Design | Remodel in 2013, focused exclusively on remodeling. I learned some hard lessons in the early years, but I developed an obsession with customer service and satisfaction, and now we're pretty good at it! You know how I know? I see former customers around town who hug me and tell me "We still LOVE our kitchen!"
I have a Bachelor's degree in Interior Design, with NCIDQ Certification, as well as a background in Graphic Design, Website Design, and Marketing. Interior Design is my true passion. I love the challenge of putting the pieces together to make a beautiful, comfortable, and functional space. Listening to what a client needs, and then helping to bring that vision to life is very fulfilling. When I'm not designing, I love traveling the world, camping with my dogs, and hunting for furniture pieces to refinish. I love everything about Idaho (especially the people), and I am proud to call Boise my forever home.
I’ve been in the construction industry for over 25 years, with the last 17 years spent in project management. The relationships I have made along the way are the most valuable rewards. My love for the industry drives me to excel when challenges arise. I joined CCH because of the family feel and attention to the customer. Prior to CCH, I have had the pleasure of working on several unique and challenging projects over the years including large scale commercial projects, multi-family developments and numerous single-family additions and remodels. I moved to Boise in 1991 and, although I’m not a native, I'm proud to call Boise home!
I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and have lived here the majority of my life. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Recording Technology and started a local music studio here in Boise. I like to spend most of my time making music or outside enjoying the weather. I have lots of experience with hands-on work which I combine with my experience managing projects and teams here at CCH Design / Remodel.
I’m a problem solver and perfectionist, which drives my wife nuts. With a background in graphic design, project management and finish carpentry, I’m experienced in creatively overcoming technical and regulatory obstacles, as well as communicating with clients and vendors, to keep projects on schedule and bring visions to life. I enjoy working with my hands, learning new skills, and using best practices for lasting quality.
Our Customers Say It Best
Mike and his team at CCH Design did an amazing job remodeling our kitchen and adjoining seating area in the Spring of 2019. They brought our 1970s though 90’s space into this century. From the first day we met Mike he was very professional, friendly and helpful. He sat down with us, discussed our likes and dislikes and then came up with an impressive new kitchen design.
His team assigned to the project was just as helpful. They arrived and keep the space extremely clean during the remodel. They provide excellent advice and held our hands, as we requested, regarding recommendations on fixtures, counter tops, colors, etc… Without his team, we never would have been able to end up with such an amazing kitchen.
The remodel was done within a few months, on time and exceeding our expectations. When any issues or concerns came up, Mike promptly addressed and kept the project moving forward.
Since the remodel we have dramatically increased the use of the kitchen and adjoining seating area. Our family and friends are amazed with the transformation, as are we. We highly recommend CCH Design and would use them again in an instant to remodel another part of our home.

Why choose CCH Design | Remodel?
We are an award-winning full-service remodeling general contractor, specializing in mid-range and upscale kitchen remodeling, bathroom remodeling, and home additions.
Our professionalism, attention to detail, innovative designs, and obsession with customer care has made us the best choice for mid-range to upscale kitchen and bath remodels and additions. While there are a lot of contractors in the valley who can build a nice kitchen or bathroom, we stand out in a few important ways:
The best design process in town: We use state-of-the-art 3d design software (like you see on HGTV!) during collaborative design sessions at your kitchen table to redesign your space, incorporating your feedback and showing you different options in instant, realistic, and real-time 3d renderings. Over the years as we've refined this design approach, we've found it far more effective and efficient than the old "I'll take your list of ideas back to the office and get back to you"approach. Our customers love it!
Transparent and comprehensive project management: We provide you with one central app with your own personal login. The project schedule, daily logs, progress photos, plans and design renderings, messaging, selections details, budget, to-dos, etc. etc. are available 24/7 for you to keep track of your project. This not only keeps us impeccably organized and on schedule, but it also keeps you informed and up to date on the progress of your remodel. The anxiety of not knowing what to expect, who is coming and going, trying to remember product and design details, etc. is all but eliminated, providing you with a much smoother, efficient, and enjoyable experience.
A less-stressful experience: Remodeling is...really difficult to live through, no matter what. We go to great lengths to minimize the stress by maintaining an exceptionally high level of conscientiousness that's--unfortunately--rare in our industry. Exhaustive site protection to manage dust and maintain privacy, a clean jobsite, and constant communication both in-person and through our app, all contribute to a positive remodel experience.
Professionalism: We are properly registered (did you know there's no licensing for remodelers in Idaho?) and insured, maintain membership in NARI of Idaho, use only properly-licensed or registered subcontractors, insist on obtaining all necessary permits and inspections, and we build (at a minimum) according to current building codes.
