OUR HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
Twenty years ago, our president Michael de Leon, decided to leave commercial construction and go back to his roots. Unlike his past experience, in the residential sector of the construction industry, he was no longer looking to flip houses or to build as a developer, instead he turned his focus to custom home building and remodeling. For the last 20+ years that has been his sole focus. Specializing in turning your existing home into the home of your dreams, or starting from scratch and helping you to build the home of your dreams by turning it into your reality.
President, Michael de Leon, began working in the construction industry in 1970 when he transitioned out of accounting and into flipping houses. After successfully buying and flipping over 350 homes inside of 3.5 years, Michael transitioned himself, and the company he had built, into new construction. As a developer, Michael ran a crew of 400-500 men and became one of the largest employers for sub-contractors in the Inland Empire during the 1980's. However, after the housing crash in the market in 1989 Michael moved to San Diego and began working for PSI as Head of Operations bidding million dollar commercial projects. Yet, after a few years he missed doing the work of a general contractor and in 1998 he went back out on his own. For the last 20 years he has focused solely on custom home building and remodeling.
Vice President, Christian Leon, first started working in the construction industry with a concrete company back in 2010. However, he quickly realized this was not his passion, and he began working behind the scenes with Dixieline Lumber in the retail side of the construction industry. It didn't take long for him to miss working with his hands so in 2012 he began his apprenticeship with his father in general construction where he found a passion for custom home building and remodeling. He loves to take a space and find a creative way to make it more functional and modern at the same time. Yet, his real specialty is his ability to design new homes with a twist, giving them the quirks and character from historical homes and generations past.
