Building A Stillwater In California

"Literally no hiccups, no hold ups, no hassles. And the house we wound up with is a joy to live in. It’s bright, it’s simple, and it feels like home." - Stillwater Homeowner

For over ten years, we have been working with clients to build their dream homes in California. No matter where in the state your property is located, our experienced staff can help you to navigate the home design and build process while guiding you through working with your local jurisdiction. Many of our new homes are rebuilds in California’s fire hazard areas. Our prefabricated system is becoming increasingly popular as the best solution to those who are looking to rebuild quickly. Many people feel they must choose between a fast rebuild and a safe, “fire defense” rebuild. With Stillwater client’s don’t have to choose. We offer fast-track solutions that include fire defense planning specific to each site.

Site Planning

Before floor plans come into play, the initial planning strategy is to create a buffer or defensible space of incombustible material around the home location. This buffer zone can be comprised of patios, driveways or low-growing fire-retardant plants. Special attention is paid to the potential for extremely dangerous up-slope running fire areas. Site layout includes the planning of driveways and turnarounds that are wide enough to make it easy for firefighters.
