New Home Design/Build

New Home Construction 

San Diego New Home Contractor 

Translating our client’s vision into a new environment with the highest standards of craftsmanship is our goal. ​For your new home construction, we can work with your existing architectural plans, or if you don't have any design plans yet we’ll greatly simplify the process and make it easy for you by our in-house ‘design/build’ capability, combining the architect and builder into one, creating a single point of contact for your new construction in San Diego. The Design/Build process allows for the seamless continuity that begins with our first client meeting and ends only when we hand you the keys to your completed project.


SM DesignBuild​ is an experienced and accomplished design and new construction contractor based in Encinitas CA. For over 20 years, we’ve been designing, building and/or remodeling our clients homes with a commitment to quality and dedication to client satisfaction. Our new home construction projects have been completed throughout North San Diego County, including Encinitas, Del Mar, La Costa, Rancho Santa Fe and La Jolla.

Whether your project is new construction, a remodel - or an addition, we build your home with the highest quality materials with a commitment to excellence and client satisfaction. SM-DesignBuild strives to be San Diego’s top contractor for remodels or new construction projects. 

Our design-build process reduces new construction or remodeling time and costs, and simplifies the process for you. We are your one point of contact accountable for the success of your project - as opposed to having separate architect and contractor teams with often differing priorities. We work with you to plan, design, and construct your new home or new construction project with a goal of exceeding your expectations. Whether your San Diego new home construction needs are an entire home, a guest house or ADU (Accessory Dwelling unit), or a remodel, let us take on your project!


One of 9 custom luxury homes in a 39-acre development. Residences are situated on a 1+ acre lots, accessed by a series of private drives and surrounded by woodlands and riding trails.


This significant expansion and addition more than doubled the property's square footage on this tight suburban lot. The front lower roof section is all that remains of the original 1940's ranch house.


A steep southern California canyon site with ocean views presented both design and engineering challenges. A cantilevered concrete slab supported by reinforced columns set into the hillside was designed to met the client's desire for preservation of dramatic vistas for indoor/outdoor living space and required square footage for the growing family.


This client asked for a 'contemporary Cape Cod' remodel/expansion; bedrooms and office space were created in the under-used attic, and a curvilinear addition with fireplace added space, light, and drama to the main living area.
