Stel Builders is a client-focused company, and that is evident from concept to completion; every home project we begin is our opportunity to build a strong relationship with our clients. We take pride in listening to the distinct needs of our clients while also taking the lead in adding creative design ideas that add to the vision they have for their projects. However, if we feel your project may not fuse well with your current home or may stand out as an outlier in the neighborhood, we will not hesitate to let you know.

Review of Stel Builders by Zane Thompson

Last year, my wife and I hired the Stel Builders team to build us a master suite. We originally started with an 860sf- 2br 1ba home. As you can imagine, it was a little cramped for our family of 4. After sitting down with Seth, the owner, he was able to show us how to utilize the existing space in our large backyard to transform our current living area. Seth was immediately able to visualize how to expand the rear section of our home with minimal interruption to our daily routine during construction. Seth and his team designed a beautiful addition that flows seamlessly with the original layout of our home. After our remodel, we were able to gain just over 600sf and now have all the space we need to raise our young kids. We cannot thank Stel Builders enough!

Review of Stel Builders by Jay Yu

We hired Stel for a major remodel of our home in PB. Our family has lived in this house since it was new in the early 1950s so, while we wanted to do a number of updates, we also wanted to maintain some of the character and feel of the original house. Seth and his team quickly and completely understood our requirements, and provided us a design that absolutely blew us away without blowing our budget. Working with the design team was awesome, despite the overwhelming nature of having to pick from an endless range of options. 

The build process was easier than we thought it would be considering the large project we were about to undertake (full kitchen remodel, addition of a partial second story to include a master suite and laundry room, 2 bathroom remodels, and new paint and flooring throughout the rest of home).  Brian, our project manager, was communicative, clear, and on-time. The trades were responsible, respectful, and hard-working. The only significant impacts to the budget and the schedule were ones they warned us could happen (e.g., asbestos and lead abatement), or ones we caused (e.g., picking expensive things). Despite the fact that so many subcontractors and vendors were involved, it never felt like we were working with more than one company - Stel managed all of the communication, payments, and scheduling for everything within their scope. What's more, while Stel was handling many projects besides ours, we never felt like we were waiting on anyone or anything – instead they made us feel like their top priority. 

We could not have possibly been happier with our remodel experience with Stel and recommend them without hesitation.

We have met with Seth and his team about our 2nd story addition. They have taken the time to find out what we want and need for our home. Not only did they get exactly what our taste is, but the feeling that we want our guests to feel when they enter and are welcomed to our home.
I highly suggest Stel Builders and their team- they are the best quarterbacks to have on your team when deciding to remodel/rebuild your home!

I haven't had Stel Builders do any work for me yet (don't own a home), but I have seen their work and have been thoroughly impressed. I know Seth in a professional capacity and have noticed that he truly loves what he does and always shows up on time. He does a wonderful job explaining the entire building process and does his best to stay within budget. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends or family if they need work on their homes.

Seth with Stel has always met all of our expectations. We are now working on our 2nd project with them. They have an incredible level of creativity that has been so much fun to work with over the years. Our last project was an addition to accommodate our aging parents on a single level of the home and turned out great, our current project is a remodel that we hope to achieve the same level of quality and design creativity with a smaller budget than before. Seth and the team has always been able to find solutions for our design and budget constraints. They have a fabulous sense of how to design around existing conditions so you really feel like that new part of the house was always there. They really do listen to you and take into account how a family really lives. A+

Stel Builders Q&A

Stel Builders Q&A

How long have you been in business?

Established in 2006, Stel Builders is a San Diego-based Design Build Integration company that focuses its expertise in the small niche market of residential remodeling. By selectively focusing on residential projects, we are able to give our clients specialized attention and complete satisfaction in making sure each project fulfills each client's unique needs.

What guarantee does your work come with?

We offer a full 1 year warranty, along with a 4 year fit-and-finish warrant. On top of that, there is a 10 year structural warranty!

What do you love most about your job?

“Seeing an idea transform from a simple design on the computer to reality in someone’s home is an amazing feeling, and some of the most fun I’ve ever had.” -Seth Larson

What inspired you to start your own business?

Following closely in his father’s footsteps, Seth got started as an apprentice at the ripe young age of 12. By 18, he was running his own four-man crew and had taken his training to a new level. Throughout college, Seth studied architecture, drafting, design and even real estate appraisal which only fed his passion more. It is no doubt that residential remodeling is in his blood, and his passion for great design coupled with in-depth knowledge of zoning, coastal commission, property taxes (and exemptions), building records, as well as investment and financing makes him a unique and valuable player in the industry.

Why should our clients choose you?

We do our homework before even stepping foot inside your home – our team of professionals gathers detailed information about your home, including property and zoning stipulations and restrictions before we meet. During our initial consultation, we work with clients to understand their unique needs, and we provide ideas, sketches, cost ranges and a bevy of images from previously completed projects that may be similar in nature.
