Founder and President David Linda describes the success of SpaceMan in very simple terms. “We are nice people who do a great job for our clients. Because of that, they tell their friends and our business grows – 70% of our business comes from repeat business and referrals from satisfied clients.”
SpaceMan has been designing and installing closets, garage systems, Murphy wallbeds, home offices and other storage cabinetry in the Houston market since 1999. We manufacture all of our systems right here in Houston. The Houston Business Journal’s ranked us as the 35th fastest growing company in Houston, and Wood & Wood Products Magazine has us ranked the 27th fastest growing wood products company in the “Wood 100.” Ebsco, an independent consumer research firm, surveyed over 500 of our customers and 98.7% would recommend SpaceMan to their friends or use us again.
Mr. Linda brings a unique background to the world of home improvement contracting. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University and an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management.
After several years as a management consultant with Deloitte Consulting and a stint as an executive with a $20 Billion retailer, Mr. Linda decided to launch SpaceMan. His engineering and management background, hands-on approach, and personable demeanor made this business a perfect match for him. He has applied professional techniques to what typically has been a “tradesman” business. The experience that you can expect at SpaceMan will reflect these principles, and a simple, honest approach to customer service.
National recognition was also achieved in an a BusinessWeek.com article highlighting the most luxurious closets ever designed by closet specialists. SpaceMan had the privilege to participate in the Emmy Award-winning ABC television series, Extreme Makeover Home Edition as well as Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz.
Closets Magazine, the voice of the closet and home organization industry, drew attention to SpaceMan in multiple issues with articles featuring SpaceMan’s Closet Success and state-of-the-art showroom.
SpaceMan’s showroom features more than just closets. This addition is Houston’s largest and most extensive of its kind. On display are garage systems, wall beds, home office, mudroom, utility and pantry displays. In addition, there are dozens of accessories and finishes to further customize space and complement existing décor.
We thank you for your interest in SpaceMan and look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.
