Blue Star was founded by Eric Goetz 10 years ago. His vision for the company was shaped through experiences redesigning and renovating his own Capitol Hill row house, and a passion for helping friends re-envisioning their own homes. Trained in sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design, Eric sees building and renovating homes as a way to use his creativity while making a difference in the community. Now an award winning firm with a portfolio of major renovations and new build projects, Blue Star has left its stamp on neighborhoods throughout D.C.

Get to know us
Eric and Christal have a good sense of what makes a comfortable home. They were able to merge tasteful design aesthetics with functional spaces in order to modernize a 1950’s tract house into a custom residence.
The Blue Star team made the stressful process of a home improvement project very easy, affordable and professional. The results are amazing and we are enjoying our home more than ever!
Eric and his team turned the house next door to mine on Capitol Hill into a jewel box. I was impressed with his outreach to neighbors and his attention to detail. He cares about his work and it shows.
We are blown away by the transformation from where we started to where we are today and still amazed that we fit it all in!
Blue Star came in on budget and ahead of a very, very tight and critical schedule. We highly recommend them to anyone considering a renovation.
They had some very good design ideas at the start, but were also receptive to requests and very accommodating. The execution was professional and timely. We were very pleased with the work product and highly recommend the team.
