Who We Are

Whole-home remodel underway using straw-bale construction.

We are a full service, woman-owned design and build firm, founded by Lakshmi Jackman in 1993. At Transformations Building and Remodeling, we design with beauty in mind to co-create with you the most optimal living environments. An eco-friendly, certified green builder, we have operated in Austin, Texas for more than 20 years. We listen to your inspirations, craft a thoughtful remodel design, and ensure impeccable attention to detail during construction. Because we love what we do, we make the entire renovation project fun.

Our team of designers and subcontractors work together to resolve issues like better traffic flow and energy efficiency. We insist on quality work at each level of your project. Our experience with highly creative design in both smaller and larger footprint homes allows us to show you what is possible.

We specialize in whole home renovations, room additions, outdoor living spaces, and (our favorite) unusual, artistic projects.

Our clients can expect integrity, service, trust, and experience. In every project, we hold ourselves to the highest standard for problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship and innovation.

We provide our clients:

  • Education and guidance for budget and scope decisions
  • Creative design direction and match-up to best fit design partners
  • Thoughtful, transparent planning processes
  • Clear communication
  • Careful workmanship and implementation
  • Results that exceed expectations

We begin by meeting you, asking lots of questions, and really listening to you.
