Meet Maine & Florida Interior Designer & Contractor Lorraine Blais
You might want to know a little about me before we work together on your home or business.
I am a native of Maine and the owner and designer of Blais Construction & Design. This beautiful and adventure filled State is a part of my soul….and my grandfathers and fathers as well. Contracting has been in my family for 3 generations! The black and white photo to the right is my Grandfather Joe Blais at the age of 26 in his work truck. My father was also a general contractor who had a passion for building. I grew up with five brothers, I was the only girl and he was proud of it. At age 18, I decided to spread my wings and left Maine to travel for a while. I landed in Boston….where I stayed for several years, working in the world of retail.
Ready again to fly, I traveled to New York City. After finding a job in “ready to wear” on Broadway, I settled on the Upper East Side where I stayed for 8 years before heading south again, this time for the Sunshine State. Moving to Boca Raton, Florida gave me the opportunity to follow my long-time dream of becoming an Interior Designer. I love challenges and working with people. So my opening of 3 Interior Design Stores and combined with Freelance Interior Design filled an important career void.
While vacationing in Maine, I found this beautiful property called Bear Mountain Inn. The Inn needed some fixing up….but with my background in interior design and plenty of Maine construction and design skillslearned from my father, I was able to bring the Bear Mountain Inn back to its historical roots. With complete renovation you will find all the comforts and a bit more.
I have strong knowledge and experience in design, remodeling, renovation and home construction. As a Western Maine interior designer and builder, I use only good quality carpenters and contractors and am on site every step to assure quality, timeliness of project and budget control. I specialize in Lake front properties!
When you love what you do it shows!
