custom home construction & renovation

It takes decades of experience to build in an environment this unique.

Seasonal changes in the high Sierra are as varied and dynamic as the visions brought to us by our clients. For nearly 20 years, we have built and renovated custom legacy homes that continue to stand resolute in this unique environment. Whatford Construction is uniquely positioned as Kirkwood’s only full-time award-winning custom home builder. We live amongst our craftsmanship and take pride in it every day.

Our craft fuses the character of the mountains, the natural elements of the land, and bespoke creations that speak to the individual aesthetic of every client. We orchestrate all phases of construction from design to construction to move-in. We utilize proven systems that keep every project on course and within budget while keeping the client engaged and at the core of every phase of the project.

I enjoy helping people navigate the transition from multi-year season ski pass holder to becoming a homeowner in Kirkwood. I took that step myself many years ago when I built my full-time residence.
