Total Home Improvement, Inc.

About Us

Woman Owned and Operated

Our Story
Total Home Improvement, Inc was founded on the idea that everyone deserves to have the home of their dreams.  It shouldn't matter whether you live in a mansion or a tiny house, whether you are upgrading or downsizing, adding a child or aging in place.  It has always been our goal to make your dreams come true.  

Our owner, Starla Muir, has been working in the construction industry for thirty-five years.  She started out in the Carpenter's Union. After ten years, she set out to build herself a business with nothing but a hatchback and a toolbox.  

As the business grew, THI became a family enterprise, the tool box was upgraded to a tool shed, and the hatchback was replaced by a truck.  THI joined the Greater Seattle Business Association, the Better Business Bureau, and the Master Builder's Association.  The business was certified as a Women Owned Business, and by the EPA in Lead-Safe practices.   

In 2017, THI went on a brief hiatus, when Starla took a job teaching construction skills to young people preparing for the trades. When that job ended, her son joined the company and they are now back in the field.

In addition to her years of carpentry and construction, our owner also enjoys baseball and dog training, as well as reading and creative writing.  Ask her about her dog!
We are proud to volunteer our time and expertise with the Master Builder’s Care Foundation, building wheelchair ramps for our community members who could not otherwise afford accessibility improvements.

We have also lent our support to the Seattle Seafair Pirates, the Pride Foundation Scholarship Fund, and Habitat for Humanity.

Total Home Improvement has been serving the Greater Seattle area since 2000.
