Design+Build for the family

Learn what you need to know before starting your construction project.

Multigenerational homes have never been more popular in Hawaii considering the cost of living, lack of buildable land and construction cost. Whether it’s families having to take care of their kupuna, pooling resources to keep cost down, or adult children with their families moving back home. Whatever the case, the need to renovate, remodel or create an addition to accommodate multiple families has escalated and continue to rise.

These homeowners were looking for a design+build firm that could satisfy all of their needs. They wanted to build a second story addition for their daughter and her family that would allow a feeling of an independent living space.

With enough space on their lot to build another dwelling, they chose Graham Builders as their preferred design+build firm. Our talented design team created a floor plan they loved and an ideal layout for both families to grow independently but still have the feeling of togetherness.

Graham Builders has over three decades of experience and has the distinction of being the only local contractor honored by the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Business Ethics. The firm has designed and built multigenerational additions and homes since 1990, winning countless awards in this category. Call 808.593.2808 to schedule your free project evaluation.
