FHDC delivers high end residential and commercial projects. It is a client focused design-build studio set within a 3,000 sq. ft. showroom offering the perfect place to transform your vision into reality. We are home to an extensive library of print and digital resources, as well as samplings of custom cabinetry, surface materials, lighting, plumbing, furniture, and accessories. We are located on the Avenue of the Fountains in beautiful downtown Fountain Hills.

Great design has many components: light, scale, perspective, color, along with function, form and ease of living. Attention to all these elements is the difference between just good design and an extraordinary personal statement. FHDC’s showroom is open by appointment and we are always happy to assist you in meeting the unique challenges of the design build process. We provide licensed, concierge construction and detailed plans that will help you create your perfect space, an unmistakable reflection of who you are.


Over the last 20 years, Alice Blackerby has become an integral design resource in Fountain Hills. Long-time residents and new arrivals looking to build beautiful lives in the desert, find her innate talent invaluable. Her “out of the box” style of design has helped clients to go beyond their vision, creating custom interiors that are functional, remarkable and enduring.

Her successes as a designer and licensed contractor have earned her a reputation of happy clients.


Multi-talented husband Phillip Blackerby is the other half of “Team Blackerby.” Phillip earned a bachelor’s degree in economics (honors) from Brown University, and a master’s degree in public affairs from The University of Texas at Austin. Phillip maintains all aspects of client and vendor accounting, licensing and insurance to ensure compliance with the Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC).

He is also proficient in 2020 Design CAD software and is Lead Digital Designer, creating floor plans, elevations and perspective drawings. He can show clients precisely what their space will look like, kitchen and bath specifications being a specialty. His diverse talents contribute greatly to client confidence in FHDC.


We design and furnish substantial improvements to surfaces, window treatments, flooring, cabinetry, casework, counter tops, architectural lighting, electrical and plumbing fixtures.


For owners and managers of commercial buildings, office and retail tenants, we offer a full range of design and light construction services. These include improvements to public areas, facade upgrades, hardscape, and build-out of tenant occupied spaces.


We manage upgrades or renovation of existing spaces, electrical + mechanical systems, or structural alterations, any of which typically require a licensed, bonded and insured contractor to perform.
