Truly Custom...

Eco-friendly materials and design for years of comfort, efficiency and durability.


An ethos encompassing not just the materials we use, but our philosophy of building as well.


Details matter. Our skilled team is dedicated to the highest level of quality and service in everything we do.


Truly Custom…and unique by design. At Solstice Builders our approach is as different as the homes we build. Our projects showcase the uniqueness of our clients and our team of master carpenters and staff are uniquely capable of making your dream a reality. We are dedicated to full transparency and open communication which we accomplish through accurate estimating, regular budget updates, and weekly project updates.

Sustainability starts from the ground up, and encompasses everything we do. We have over 15 years experience in green and sustainable building and offer a wide range of eco-friendly materials such as Trex decking, engineered hardwood, and low VOC paints and stains to match any style.

Efficiency goes beyond our innovative insulation strategies, geothermal HVAC and the Andersen windows and doors we install, and extends through our entire building philosophy. Practices such as efficient building techniques minimize waste during construction, air sealing maximizes thermal performance, and Energy Star appliances and fixtures reduce energy and water usage.

Craftsmanship. Our team of master carpenters and management staff work together throughout your project to provide the highest level of craftsmanship and service possible. By handling the high end finishes in-house, we are able to provide an exceptional and Truly Custom finished product for your home.

New Construction

From the ground up, our new construction projects exemplify the Solstice Builders philosophy. Starting with custom home designs, we use advanced framing techniques, high efficiency insulation, air sealing and a unified design plan encompassing both the interior and exterior spaces of your home, to make our new homes some of the most energy efficient and beautiful in the area.


Whether you want to add more space, create an outdoor kitchen and living space, need a new deck, want to update your kitchen and baths or want a complete renovation on your whole house, Solstice Builders can help.

Our unique approach to design, energy efficiency and sustainable building materials applies to our renovations as well as new construction. At Solstice Builders, our team can help bring your vision to reality and make your home better in every way.
