We’re committed to sustainable practices in each home we design, build or remodel.


Our philosophy is simple, straightforward and summed up in three words-Personal, Responsible, Exceptional. It's not just a concept we talk about. It's one we live and breathe.


We found a better way to build. It's personal. We focus intently on you, the client, to create a home that suits your lifestyle and reflects your individual tastes.


At Carmel Building & Design we provide each client with an exceptional home and an exceptional experience. And we’re always looking for ways to do both even better. Hear and see for yourself what these homeowners have to say.

My husband is knowledgeable about construction so he and Rob were able to communicate easily. I appreciated that Rob took time to explain things in a way that I could understand. He made it comfortable for me to participate in the process.—Sharon B., Carmel Valley

We were drawn to Carmel Building & Design by the craftsmanship we saw in their previous projects. —Roger and Sarah P., Quail Meadows

Rob and our architect Robert Littell worked very well together. We were impressed with Rob’s ability to translate Robert’s drawings to actual details during construction. We could not be happier with the result. It has been included in several tours by different groups in Carmel. —Niels and Jan R., Carmel

My father was a contractor and I grew up around construction so I have high expectation for craftsmanship. Throughout the construction process, I was both impressed and pleased to see the exceptional quality that Rob and his team delivered on our home. —*Mica H., Carmel
