Meet Kukun
The only home renovation marketplace for homeowners
and industry professionals
Kukun (pronounced “cocoon”) knows home renovation, because it was born from it. Founder Raf Howery learned the ins and outs of the process the hard way – by going through many renovations in the United States and Europe. Along the way he learned to do things faster, better, and cheaper. He also learned that surprises are bound too come up, but can be managed proactively. When Raf heard that approximately one-fifth of potential home buyers choose to keep renting or move away from an area instead of
purchasing a home that needs renovating, it was clear that something needed to change. That’s how the idea for Kukun came to be.
Kukun’s mission is centered around these values
Honesty and transparency
Kukun is here for the homeowner, first and formost. By making every step in the process as clear as possible, renovators are empowered and informed.
Whether your fear is going over budget, hiring the wrong person, losing control of your project, having
your life disrupted, or having your project take way too much time, nearly every homeowner experiences
renophobia – the fear of home renovation – in some way.
Kukun is here to help.
Professionals aren’t charged to join the Kukun Professional Network and they can’t pay to rank at the top
of the listings, because hiring the right person shouldn’t be about marketing dollars.
Social responsibility and sustainability
Kukun is on a mission to build a more sustainable, energy-efficient housing market. By renovating
existing homes in smart ways, unnecessary buildouts are avoided.
