Who We Are

Del Mar Building Company got its start in the construction business in 1978 when company founder Leo Fuller started working as a framer while completing his degree in mechanical engineering at the University of California San Diego. The part-time job became Leo's passion, and after graduating from UCSD, Leo continued in the construction business and formally started Del Mar Building Company as a licensed general contractor in 1994.

Today, Leo's formal background in mechanical engineering is just one factor that distinguishes Del Mar Building Company. Our expertise in the interplay of physics and design allows us to work with engineers, architects, and you in a uniquely profound way. Rather than just follow a plan, we see and conceptualize the essential elements that are the foundation of fine craftsmanship and discriminating home building.

We also take pride in the fact that Leo has a long personal history of doing fine detailed crasftmanship in our own workshop. For example, hand-building doors & trim work.

Unlike other construction firms, we only run a few projects at any time. This focus allows us to deliver detail-obsessed craftsmanship from foundation to chimney cap, window frame to bath fixture. The fact that we are totally dedicated to you – not running multiple jobs all over San Diego County – means that we are always available, helpful, and attentive to our craft.

. What We Do

We specialize in two types of residential construction:

New Construction: Whether you are replacing an existing home or starting with raw land, we have extensive experience managing all stages of new custom home construction. From working with your architect on home design to orchestrating the demolition and recycling of your existing home to careful construction management from foundation to fixtures, we deliver hands-on craftsmanship through every stage of the construction process. Remodels and Additions: From bathroom makeovers to complete home renovations and extensive additions, Del Mar Building Company has the expertise to handle your remodel job with confidence and unstinting attention to detail.

See our gallery for examples of our new home and remodel projects.

. How We Work

We start by meeting with you to discuss your goals and aspirations. By listening carefully to your requirements and budget realities, we come to a mutual understanding of your needs – what you want out of your new home or remodel and how you want it to make you feel once you are in it. Working with you and your architect, we then generate a cost proposal that suits your budget and taste. Next we work with engineers and architects to secure the necessary building permits. Once construction starts, we are on site every day to ensure that your home is built to our exacting standards and in harmony with your and your architect's vision. Because we are an exclusive builder, we are totally dedicated to your project and always available to answer any questions or concerns.
