Co-Creative Construction

At Oakland Heritage Builders, as a design-build firm, we design and build beautiful projects. More than skin deep, we build with care from bottom to top and inside out. Working with owners, architects, designers, we serve anyone with particular needs, wants, and appreciation for quality and attention to detail. Whether you already have a design package or need to create one, we’re here to bring your vision to life!

We leave heritage improvements on the projects we touch – legacy improvements in the built environment, whether in your home, at the office, or any other space.

We are experienced finishers, delivering results with clear expectations set from the start. We offer in house design services, from brainstorming to fully documented design. 

We love dogs, cats, and kids!

Whether you’re considering a renovation, structural remodel, an addition to an existing structure, or a ground-up build, we have the team lined up to make it happen.

Our network is made up of caring and friendly people who you will like to have in and around your home, office, or other project. We work, live, and create locally. We like serving our neighbors and this will shine through in the work.

A clean job site is a successful job site – we clean up frequently and use adequate site protection based on the conditions and requirements on the job.


Considering we'll spend a lot of time together, these are important and often overlooked factors in home improvement!


Clear cut expectations. Communication. Site protection. Careful demo. Assessment of existing conditions. Attention to detail at every step. Impeccable finished results!
