Bob Gockeler | Owner

My vast experience in general contracting is coupled with a keen sense of design that is a unique blend, not often found in the world of contracting. I have designed hundreds of projects from simple remodels to complete additions.

I strive to be a local go-to place for people who want that small-town touch, who appreciate the type of personal attention that you can only get by dealing directly with the owner of a company. Blending design and creativity with my years of building and construction assures my clients the best possible solutions for their home remodeling projects. I have been able to take on the seemingly impossible and make dreams come true for my clients.

People have always marveled at my sense of style and color. I have a natural ability for seeing "what could be." I've been involved in building and remodeling for over 20+ years and that experience gives me insight into how a space could be transformed. I now have the best of both worlds with Kitchen Intuitions and KraftMaster Renovations, it has given me the opportunity to not only design, but remodel a project from start to finish.


Kimberly Platt | Senior Designer

With a background in interior design and a love of cooking, kitchen design falls right into place for Kimberly Platt. From an early age, Kim was exposed to construction, art, and antique furniture which taught her to respect all elements of design. As a kitchen & bath designer, she can incorporate that appreciation into her design details.

Kim has 12 years of experience in the kitchen, bath, and interior design industry. After completing her education at Berkeley College in 2004, she immediately began her career in interior design, specializing in kitchens and baths. By working closely with the trade throughout the years, she understands more than just the finish materials but how everything comes together in the space.

Keeping up with the current design trends and technology is very important to Kim. She attends many trade shows and industry events to stay abreast of what is new. You will see her at trainings that are available by appliance or cabinet manufacturers, continuing education seminars, and networking events every month.
