We Build the Homes Ourselves

We are a full-service organization and unique among San Diego custom home builders in that we possess the capability to perform certain critical trades in-house with Tourmaline employees. This capacity provides us with greater control over quality and schedule than other builders who rely solely on subcontractors.

Award Winning Design

Our commitment to superior design is reflected in the numerous awards we have won. We are a six-time winner of the Icon Award for the top custom home in San Diego and a past finalist for the National Association of Home Builders’ nationwide award for the best custom home. And we have been named the Building Industry Association’s San Diego Custom Home Builder of the Year.

Wide Range of Home Styles

From Modern Farmhouse to historical Craftsman, traditional Cape Cod to cutting edge Modern Homes, from classical Spanish or Mediterranean to Mid-Century Modern or Contemporary Homes, we have extensive experience in a wide range of styles and can customize to fit your taste. No matter the style, we will transform your vision into a beautiful dream home that is built to last and designed to stand the test of time.

Sustainable Design

Tourmaline built the very first spec home in San Diego to earn the prestigious LEED certification for sustainable building practices. We apply the same commitment to energy efficiency in every home we build, and all of our homes are inherently green homes, built with numerous sustainable features.
