Family Legacy of Home Builders Santa Cruz

In 1962 John Hansmann Sr. started building homes in Santa Cruz. John taught his son Steve Hansmann and his other four sons the art of custom home building and remodeling. He taught his sons every aspect of home building including foundation, framing, plumbing, electrical, dry wall and finish work. John Hansmann Sr. also taught Steve “honesty is always the best policy.” This family value is fundamental to way we conduct business. Steve and wife Julie started their own construction company in Santa Cruz in 1979. Steve was the second generation of Hansmanns to build homes in Santa Cruz.

In 2005 Steve and Julie’s son John joined the company and Steve began teaching John the art and skill of home building. In 2015 Dave Hansmann joined the family business and is instrumental in estimating, job scheduling and office management.  John and Dave are the third generation of Hansmann home builders in Santa Cruz County, the family legacy continues.

Enjoy Peace of Mind

A new home is more than walls and windows. It’s the place that holds your life’s adventures, gatherings and memories. From your baby’s first steps, to enjoying Grammie’s freshly baked cinnamon rolls, your home is where those memories are born and live on forever. Peace of mind is priceless when you are building your custom home. We build each home as if it were our own. The most important indication of our success is that our clients refer us to their friends.

    After five previous remodels, we had a pretty good idea what was ahead of us as we embarked on yet another significant remodeling project. We also knew how important our choice of contractor would be to our project success.

    We had a terrific experience with Steve and his team. He is experienced, creative and a good problem solver. We appreciated his honesty and straightforward communication style.

    The outcome? A wonderful, well built new home with pleasing details and solid construction. We could not be happier.

    In short, Hansmann Construction:
    – provided excellent advice
    – communicated well, including using BuilderTrend to track the project
    – had good subcontractors
    – managed the project and the subs well
    – insisted on quality work, redoing if necessary, to get a detail right
