We Build the Homes Ourselves

We are a full-service organization and unique among San Diego custom home builders in that we don’t hire contractors to build for us. All of our homes are constructed by Tourmaline employees. By doing the work ourselves, we achieve far greater control over quality and workmanship than builders who contract their work.
