We build this way because we're

Built This Way

Our proven processes and close-knit culture help us perpetuate the craftsmanship, industry insight, local familiarity, high standards, and values that are the bedrock of Semmes & Co. Builders.

More than 40 years
of green building expertise.

Semmes & Co. Builders, Inc. has crafted some of the most beautiful and efficient homes and structures on the Central Coast.

We bring in the best local artisans in the trades today and work with architects and owners to develop projects that are not only beautiful, but exceptionally practical. One of our strengths is the ability to apply our knowledge to many diverse materials and techniques, some old and some very new to the building industry. This background allows us to focus on another of our strengths, pioneering the development of passive solar in residential structures.

In our 45-plus years in business we have always worked to develop projects that are as energy efficient as possible with the current technologies. These have changed over the years, but we are happy to say that we have been at the forefront of these changes. We also take a good look at the use of resources in all of our projects. Are they durable? Does their cost, both monetarily and environmentally, warrant their use? Are they providing the healthiest and most aesthetic environment for our clients?

We have listed several of the most often used or asked about building methods in this section. We also encourage clients to bring new technologies, products, or systems to us. This collaboration has produced many fruitful solutions where we all learned and built a better home. It does not get much better than that.
