Dovetail Construction

New Homes, Remodels & Additions

Custom Finish Work

Since our founding in 1992, Dovetail Construction has built a reputation for thoughtful craftsmanship and careful attention to detail.

Our primary focus is custom residential building, whether it be new houses, additions, or remodels.

Our approach to building has grown out of an appreciation for well designed and beautifully crafted homes, as well as an understanding of the importance of budget and timeline to the overall success of the project.

We are a general-contracting company specializing in custom residential work and furniture-quality woodworking.

We offer a full range of services, including budget development, scheduling, and project management.

As a locally-based company with more than two decades of experience building in the Santa Cruz area, we are very familiar with the city and county procedures for assigning permits and can help our clients navigate this often-confusing process.

We work closely with a wide range of local architects and designers, so we can assist in every stage of project development, from inception through completion.
