MHD Builds was founded by Mary Denby, who holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Mary founded MHD Builds in 2015 to help her clients bring their vision for home to life. Utilizing her extensive background in architectural design, Mary develops designs that assures your objectives will be met with a feasible, on budget and on-schedule design. A home renovation presents and exciting opportunity to transform the environment where your family lives, works, plays and entertains. The design process requires technical expertise and an understanding of our client’s needs, wants and dreams. Each design created is unique to our clients, their needs, and the project site. As a home designer, our residential projects range in size and scope from bathroom remodels to complete home renovations. We are one of the more affordable Alexandria architects that most homeowners could easily include in the project budget.
