Commons & Burt Builders

has provided the finest building services to the Santa Cruz County for over 30 years. We are a family owned and operated construction business, believing communication between client, architect and craftsmen is the key to a successful project. We have developed a network of highly skilled and dedicated sub-contractors that exceed the standards of the industry. We specialize in fine custom new homes, remodels, additions, commercial tenant improvements and challenging designs. Our building services also include building new or remodeling guest houses, kitchens, bathrooms, studios, garages, barns, workshops, outdoor living areas, foundations, retaining walls and project management. 

While our business is dedicated to the Green Revolution as builders in the community, we have always built with the environment and sustainability in mind. Our own houses, office, metal studio and wood shop are built with recycled materials and energy efficiency as a priority. A photovoltaic system helps power our home, shop and office. We heat our water with passive solar hot water system and on-demand water heater. But, most importantly, we build functional quality homes that last, which minimizes waste and maintenance. We are Certified with Build It Green as Green Builders.

Our goal is to make your building project an enjoyable and professionally managed experience, from our first meeting to the last. We have found spending time organizing your project before construction effectively reduces client costs and completion time. Our honesty and integrity are key stones for respectful communication between client, architect and sub-contractors that has created our outstanding reputation in the community.
