Our Story

Welcome to Southern Restorations! Daniel and Kelly were both working separately in the industry for the first two years of their marriage. Daniel had long worked as a general contractor and handyman in Halifax County, and Kelly had been working as a Kitchen and Bathroom Designer for 15 years in Richmond and Roxboro. After collaborating on a few projects, they saw the opportunity to focus on the area that raised them both.

We started with only two people, Daniel and Kelly. We have been blessed to be consistently busy enough that we are slowly building our team with people who are as inspired by home and interior design as Daniel and Kelly. Kelly and Sam work the showroom, put the customers’ dreams into designs, and help them choose from the crazy amount of options out there. Kayla is the Money Maven who keeps track of it all! Daniel and Chad along with their crew make it all happen on the job site.
