All Phase Builders 

955A American St, San Carlos, CA 94070

Located on the San Francisco peninsula, All Phase Builders has been serving the cities of San Carlos, Redwood City, Belmont, Menlo Park, Atherton, San Mateo, Woodside, and Hillsborough for over 35 years. The firm employs a dedicated team of skilled tradesmen, including carpenters, plumbers, and electricians. The firm also has long-standing relationships with a number of talented subcontractors.

The results of these partnerships come in a variety of styles, from Traditional to Modern. Many of All Phase’s projects employ a neutral color palette, making good use of the element of light, whether it’s allowing natural light into the kitchen through skylights, or artistically lighting spaces with just-right light fixtures.

Bay Builders & Remodeling Inc. 

800 Charcot Ave, Ste. 100, San Jose, CA 95131

For Shawn Zaguri and Gilad Baron, principals of Bay Builders & Remodeling Inc., what started out as just another job soon turned into a passion. Today, Bay Builders has been in business for close to a decade, offering comprehensive building, remodeling, addition, solar panel installation, and financial services to the Bay Area.

Pictured below is an example of the firm’s work on a remodeling project. This living room is all about symmetry and subtlety, from the white painted walls to the muted color palette of the furniture. Two wooden beams deck the ceiling, adding a touch of texture to the otherwise consistent white finish. Strategically-placed windows line two adjacent walls, offering beautiful views, and inviting the outdoors to come in.

JSD Construction 

403 Old County Road, Belmont, CA 94002

Building a home is the biggest financial and emotional investment that most people will undertake in their lives. For JSD Construction, making that process exciting for homeowners is part of its job. The firm builds custom homes and remodels from Burlingame to Los Altos Hills, striving to give customers the best service possible on the Peninsula.

Pictured below is a recent project by the firm. This open concept kitchen is warm and charming, thanks to the earth-toned color palette and dim light fixtures. The furniture is both ornate and simple, from the island seats to the separate all-white dining area. The open concept also facilitates easy movement from one room to the next, affording a wider space for guests and residents alike to be entertained.

SEA Construction 

1009 S. Railroad Ave, San Mateo, CA 94402

SEA Construction was founded out of third-generation builder and principal Steve Albert’s desire to minimize the waste and scheduling delays that were typically present in the traditional “design to production” process. The firm started out as a design-build company in 1989; today, its reputation is built on integrity and creative solutions and designs. 

With its years in business, the firm is a highly-experienced team. Many of its employees have been with the firm for more than 20 years. As a result, the firm is skilled in everything from initial design to final inspection. Pictured below is an example of the firm’s work on a contemporary kitchen. The kitchen has exposed beams, a metal railing to hold the lights, and an exhaust situated by the ceiling. The dominantly wooden cabinets and fixtures contrast with the above elements, working nicely to achieve the look of industrial design.

Universal Developing Inc. 

513 Mountain View Ave, Belmont, CA 94002

Universal Developing, Inc. is a firm with a prolific practice, having completed over a thousand projects for residential and commercial clients in over three decades of business. Led by Guy Harper, the firm’s president and chief operating officer for the past 28 years, Universal Developing, Inc. provides home building and remodeling services to clients on the San Francisco peninsula.

As seen in the firm’s portfolio, Universal Developing is proficient in a number of project types. With remodeling, in particular, the firm exercises a keen eye for details and a listening ear for what clients want for their homes. Pictured below is an interior remodeling project the firm completed in Palo Alto. The whole home remodel involved the bathroom, kitchen, and living areas. With the kitchen in particular, the traditional style was used to create a warm, cozy atmosphere. Wooden floors and fixtures dominate the room, giving the kitchen a classic look that never goes out of style.
