James Witt | About



In 1971, I began my first experience building a home at the college I attended. The home was completed on time and on budget and auctioned off that summer and subsequently moved to make room for the next, “project house.” While some of the practices have changed over the years, the principles have not. “Build a quality home with attention to detail and your reputation will sustain you.”

We fill a niche, building homes in Palo Alto and the Silicon Valley. Many of our transactions are direct to buyer and/or seller and at times cooperating with realtors on one or both sides of a transaction.

We build one of a kind custom homes for select clients. We are not the “cheapest,” option you can make, so if budget is an overriding concern, we may not be for you.

Because many of our homes are sold before project completion, please stay in touch and leave any questions/comments you may have below in the contact box, and we can keep you posted about any current or potential future projects.
