OWNER | GENERAL CONTRACTOR
Jeremy Gill founded the Design | Build firm in 2009, but his experience in the building industry reaches back to his childhood, when he spent his days alongside his father importing plywood and hand-carved wood products from southeast Asia. Over the years, he has worked on every side of the business, from global supply chain to local trim carpenter. He possesses a first-hand knowledge of all building trades from his work as a specialist in the framing and flooring businesses and as a generalist in his historic home renovation business.
He took a four-year hiatus from building to earn a Bachelor of Music degree in Classical Percussion from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. During this time, he began to develop his visual aesthetic sensibility while building furniture in a friend's woodshop, and installing Japanese gardens for a prominent designer.
These diverse experiences come together in his work as a licensed general contractor. His thorough knowledge of the construction trade enables him to develop integrated solutions for every project, and to ensure that each element is executed to the highest level. His refined aesthetic principles result in work that is both original and elegant.
In addition to his work in the building industry, Jeremy has developed a line of original electric guitars. Visit to learn more. He enjoys playing these guitars with his band, Kitchn.
Amy Gill has worked along side Jeremy in the firm since 2011. Trained as a classical organist, she met Jeremy at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Together, they have refined their aesthetic principles in a shared pursuit of elegant and ecologically responsible homes.
In addition to her work with Jeremy, she accepts freelance design work for other Nashville home owners, builders and developers. She is a full time agent with Parks Realty.
After hours, she pursues her original love for music making with the minimalist rock ensemble The Mute Group.
