We are a full service

Design + build
Remodeling Company

We provide a simple, transparent, and turnkey service to take a remodeling project idea from the initial design into a built project.

What we do

Rebel Builders delivers remodeling projects, focusing on kitchen and bath remodels. We provide both design and construction services under one roof. It is important to us that our clients feel comfortable and understand all aspects of our process: we want all of our clients to love both the process and the end result!


We provide design services to develop projects that fit both our clients’ priorities and their budgets, focusing on creating a supportive and transparent client experience.


Remodeling is an invasive process by nature. We want to make sure your project goes as smoothly as possible by taking full accountability for the construction process. 

Who we are

Rebel Builders is founded through the teamwork of Diana Pauro and Kara Wilson, women with a passion for the design-build methodology and creating clients who love working with them, again and again. 

Diana Pauro

Diana Pauro

Co-founder, COO

Diana is passionate about working with clients in every detail of their dream home. She believes quality of life is intersectional with how we live our spaces and how we relate with them. She holds a Masters Degree in Architecture and Urban Planning and worked as registered architect in her country of Argentina doing custom homes and commercial projects until she met her life partner and moved to the US in 2016. In 2017-2018 she was employed by one of the more successful design-build companies in the Greater Boston area, starting as a designer and working her way up to Design Director. In her spare time she and her partner run a design objects brand and learn new crafts.

Kara Wilson

Kara Wilson

Co-founder, CEO

Kara has been marketing remodeling companies since 2013. Previously she had been employed in the sales and marketing industry, even though she attended school at the Academy of Art University for Interior Architecture and Design as well as The Boston Architectural College. Her past work experience with a commercial architecture firm and passion for design combined with her more recent marketing and business management experience has made the partnership with Diana effortless. She is a LEED Accredited Professional,  has two beautiful boys, plays the electric viola, and takes on crafty projects to keep her sane when it’s too quiet.

Design Matters.

Our design team crafts exceptional spaces that are tailored to the people that we work closely with. We spend time making sure all the details are figured out before we do the hands-on work so that we can reduce unexpected surprises like cost or scope increase. We believe in the power of transparency in our business practices to help our clients understand what we’re doing to feel comfortable with our work.

Why we are different

Throughout our experience in the design and construction industry, our team has encountered many challenges in how remodeling projects are viewed by clients. There is often an adversarial approach between the client and the contractor, designer, or architect. Our goal is to create a connection with our clients that allows us to overcome this boundary, and work together as a team to achieve a product that is not only beautiful, but is enjoyable to create for the client and for our team. Remodeling is naturally a great intrusion into anyone’s life. We focus on creating an excellent client experience from beginning to end, supporting our clients in a journey to improve their lives.
