why build a custom home with us?

Founded over 100 years ago, we have grown to become the East Bay’s premier custom home builder. Our strength is helping you articulate your dream, then bringing that dream to reality so you can live the life you’ve imagined.

With design, development, and construction in-house, we eliminate many hassles and delays associated with traditional home building. The result is a process you can actually enjoy, and stories you can smile at sharing with friends and family.

We build homes and relationships to last. As we see it, it’s not enough to build the right home in the right place — we also need to build it in the right way. That means doing right by you, our customers, as well as employees, investors, and government partners.
