About Us

What brought us together is a shared love of design and an honest desire to make a difference in our client’s lives.  Each project is unique and each client is special, which is part of why we enjoy what we do and the people we are blessed to work with. ​


Paul Castell

Owner & President

Meet Paul, a kitchen and bath professional with over 35 years of experience in the construction industry. Paul's journey began in his teenage years, where he contributed to his father's construction company. While pursuing a BBA in Business Management at Georgia State University, Paul engaged in the renovation and sale of several houses in metro Atlanta, a pursuit that continued until the establishment of his own construction firm, Crown Construction, in North Georgia.

With a track record of success in crafting hundreds of custom homes, predominantly in the scenic locale of Big Canoe, Paul and his family opted for a change, relocating to Lake Lanier to embark on the renovation of a century-old house. Adding to his repertoire, Paul reentered the kitchen and bath design industry as a consultant. In 2014, he founded Dove Studio with Jenny Lyons, marking a new chapter in his career.
