Tim Quade

IT/Services Manager

With a background in HVAC and carpentry, Tim has a wealth of knowledge that helps our designers engineer and implement our designs. Tim’s craftsmanship is evident throughout our whole showroom since he did most of the remodeling and installations. He also is entrusted with cabinet receiving and deliveries. You often will see Tim fixing computer glitches and helping with the many facets of running DQD day to day.

Ed

Ed Johnson

Accountant

A lover of long bike rides around Madison lakes, plain ham sandwiches, and numbers, Ed keeps the office running as our in-house accountant. He spends his downtime with his three grandkids and watching Friend’s episodes on repeat. At work he’s known to smuggle the work dog’s treats, give them a good belly rub, and brings his over 30 years of experience in the Kitchen and Bath design business to the table. Currently, he and his wife are daydreaming about retirement in Florida.

Pam Nesbitt

Pam Nesbitt

Senior Design Coordinator & Kitchen and Bath Designer

A small town girl, Pam has been in Madison and the design industry for 16 years. Much to her dismay, she’s the office choice for drawing hood details and molding details because of her attention to detail and experience in the field. Pam has added several NKBA awards to her resume since joining us and is the in-house guru for new construction projects. When she’s not bowling with friends, you can find her at the dog park with her rescue puppy (Floyd) or coming up with new recipes.

Erica Weaver

Erica Weaver

Senior Design Coordinator, Kitchen and Bath Designer, & Social Media Director

A Michigander at heart, Erica is in Madison by way of Detroit. She was a Geographer in another life before she went back to design school and refuses to cheer for any team other than her beloved Michigan State Spartans. Erica likes to remind everyone in the office that our job is FUN. She loves yoga and makes a point to hike during all of her travels. Space planning and bold finish selections are her favorite parts of being a Kitchen & Bath Designer. She’s also in charge of 'after' photo shoots, our social media pages, and making the office laugh.

Allison

Allison Aurit

Design Coordinator

A recent design school graduate, Allison spends most of her days juggling client projects while keeping the office and sample room organized. Her weekends are full of chores at her in-law’s farm, fixing up her new home with her husband or snap-chatting her hilarious cat Harold. A foodie (and whiskey lover) at heart, she loves binge-watching new shows on Netflix and baking and cooking for her loved ones and coworkers.
