What People Say About Freeman's Construction Inc
We were a fire rebuild too from the 2007 wildfires. We interviewed many GCs to build our 6,000+ sq. ft. custom home. Freeman's Construction was by far the best choice and they didn't disappoint! They are family owned and operated and are just all around sincere, hard-working and godly people. All the sub contractors they use are top notch - from the framers and electricians, to the plumbers and cleaners who made the place spotless before we moved in. The construction site was always incredibly clean and Bill was there a lot to make sure everything was just how we wanted it. They communicated early and often as the project progressed, which kept us right on schedule. We came in on budget too (with any overages being our decision to go beyond the allowances). Everyone comments on how beautiful the home is - the craftsmanship, the detail, and the quality work. We are SO thankful we found and hired Freeman's Construction and wish them nothing but good fortune and blessings in all they do!

Freeman’s Construction Inc. has been building custom homes, accessory dwelling units, and completing whole house remodeling projects in San Diego County for over 39 years. To schedule a project consultation please call us today at 760-788-6846 or fill out a request form here.
