We here at Semmes are a pretty happy group. And we have some new guys to add to our hard working gang.

Steve Bishop pic 2015First we want to welcome Steven Bishop. After a hiatus, he’s back with Semmes and working hard as a job manager these days. You’ll see Steven taking care of all the details on his jobs. We’re happy to have him back with us.


Chris WalterNext, in our line-up is Chris Walter. Chris or “Walter” as the guys call him, joined the Semmes team in September. He’s already been here three months. Whoa – time flies when you’re a hard-working job manager!


Al Martini

Just recently we added our newest:  Albert (Al) Martini. Al comes to us with a background in fine finish woodwork (See some of his artistic side here.)


To all our newest members – we welcome you. We’re so happy you chose to be part of the Semmes Team.

Four at the Hole

This past November 7th, Semmes & Co. showed its support for Atascadero Loaves and Fishes by sponsoring a hole and a “whole” team at the annual “Joe D” DiDomenico Golf Tournament held at Chalk Mountain Golf Course. This tourny was put on by the local chapter of Kiwanis International. The team consisted of Pete Moore, Jeff DeCou, Steven Bishop and Tom Moore. The guys placed in the middle of the field of over 100 golfers with a score of 13 under par. The wonderful event raised over $11,000 for Loaves & Fishes, which provides food for the elderly and poor.

Well done, gentlemen!

We know solar! Contact Semmes and Co. Builders, Inc. for your building or remodeling project.

On Saturday Oct. 10, Semmes and Co. sponsored me to participate in Solarthon, an annual fundraiser for Grid Alternatives. Grid Alternatives is a nonprofit organization that works to install solar panels for low income families that would otherwise never be able to afford them. The goal is to provide enough panels to produce nearly all of the electricity needs for each family.

One woman thanked the effort stating that her disabled son needed an electric bed and an electric wheel chair which results in high utility bills. We completed the solar arrays for a total of eight homes in one neighborhood.

While Solarthon is an annual event, Grid Alternatives works throughout the year training volunteers for in exchange for free labor.  What a great way to promote social and environmental welfare with the added benefit of teaching people an employable skill.

We recently had our community workshop to perform the straw bale construction portion of this green custom home addition. Many of the owners’ friends and neighbors as well as other interested individuals came together for a day of education and progress.
