Rebel Builders is a Queer, Latinx Woman-Owned Design + Build company constructing a radical alternative. Our diverse team is committed to providing high quality, collaborative, and communicative design and build services to meet the unique needs and desires of our clients, while also priortizing social, environmental, and educational goals to serve the community.
We offer comprehensive residential design & build services, partnering with our clients and guiding them through every stage of their partial or whole house remodel, addition, or new construction.
In a traditional Design-Bid-Build approach, homeowners need to hire a designer, then find a separate contractor to complete the build. That means managing two separate entities and keeping communication organized between them—not the most efficient process. Instead, our Design-Build process integrates design and construction teams to create a single point of contact and accountability. One consistent vision drives the project from start to finish, offering fewer headaches and surprises and better outcomes.

At Rebel, our process is a bit more hands-on than you might expect. After submitting an inquiry on our website, prospective clients are sent our info and a questionnaire, and then invited to schedule a video call and site visit. Once those have been completed, the Rebel team will send prospective clients a detailed proposal for the project. After the proposal has been accepted, we move into the multi-layer design phase that includes budgeting, 3D renders, Virtual Reality walk-throughs of the designs, and client selections. Once the design phase is complete, construction begins. From demolition to our final punch list, we communicate with and update our clients with regular meetings and the use of BuilderTrend, a helpful platform to manage efficient collaboration.
The Rebel Team is passionate about helping people craft spaces that are not just eye catching and beautiful, but are custom fit to serve their unique lives. Our homes are so personal; they are a refuge and the spaces where we play out our lives. We are inspired by the creativity that is born when we collaborate with homeowners to push beyond the mainstream and give life to bold, innovative ideas that perfectly fit their visions.
“Rebel did a whole house remodel for us. We love the result. They worked closely with us to match our style. They are very detailed-oriented, great professionals, and offer top-of-the-line craftsmanship.” - Silvia D. in Milton, MA
“We had a great experience with Rebel Builders. The enthusiasm and cheerfulness of Diana, the owner and lead architect, was infectious. Diana grasped our need for a cozy, warm and updated master bathroom, closet, and master bedroom, quickly and well. She and her team managed our project with skill, politeness, and consideration. They were available to answer questions when we had them, were sensitive to our needs (we were living in the house at the time), and had strong time-management skills.
I particularly liked that Diana paid attention to hiring contractors with a similar philosophy of strong customer service. I would thoroughly recommend Rebel Builders if you need ideas for a project and full project management through completion. Indeed, we recommended Rebel Builders to friends who are renovating an entire house with them.” - Alison S. in Cambridge, MA
“The Rebel staff is knowledgeable and extremely helpful. They gently guided us through the process, explaining everything along the way, and they truly listened. They learned who we are and what we like and made suggestions based on those things. Communication is not at all stressful and the client portal they use is excellent. We feel so fortunate for having found the lovely and talented people at Rebel.” - Larry & Beth Z. in North Easton, MA
