Hammonds Construction has decades of experience dealing with all of the local municipalities from Ashland to Grants Pass and Jackson, Klamath, and Josephine Counties. Then, we design your customized home with our in-house CAD (Computer Aided Design) Designer. Our design process is a 100% custom design process. You don't have to choose from a couple of plans that we use. Hammonds Construction and Development will design your home to be like no other home, a true one-of-a-kind custom home. You will experience a truly enjoyable design and building experience. Whether you need a small remodel, renovation, new home, or multiple homes built; Hammonds Construction is the top choice for a custom home builder.

The Hammonds Experience
We have put together a simple, yet comprehensive process for your new home or remodel.
Step 1: Initial Meeting
Before we start designing and building a home for you, we want to meet with you and get to know you. Each home we design is a reflection of you and your family. This is why we need to get a feel for how you live and what things are important to you. We will discuss your situation (bare property, existing home, financing, budget, etc.) and come up with a set of goals and steps for your project. Then, we will explain how our design and building process works and answer any questions you have for us. There is no cost or obligation for the initial meeting.
Step 2: Getting Started
After the initial meeting we will put the steps we outlined into action. This is the stage where we assist you with things such as property selection, layout, remodel assessment, feasibility assessment, etc. We will also draw the initial floor plans and elevations to get your design started.
Step 3: Design Development
Now we get to the fun part; designing your home! Our design development process is truly enjoyable. We will spend as much time and have as many meetings with you as needed to get your design just perfect. Throughout the design development, we will monitor what changes to the design will do for your budget and make sure we stay within your desired budget. Our construction experience drives our ability to know and relay cost implications of design changes to you. We have a building science expert on staff that reviews plans and makes suggestions to improve efficiency, durability, sustainability, and the healthiness of your home.
Step 4: Finish Selection
Finish selections such as floor covering, cabinets, etc. happen throughout the design and construction process. We have an in-house designer that will work with you from start to finish helping you pick out finishes. She will take you shopping and help you select the things that will make the home uniquely yours.
Step 5: Final Budget Review
This is when we review the final budget for your home. We will detail the cost of everything that goes into building your home and review it with you. Then we will make any last adjustments to the design before we submit for permits and home certification programs (LEED, Earth Advantage, Energy Star, etc.) if desired.
Step 6: Construction
Let’s start building your dream home! Our construction process will keep you informed and involved throughout the build. Most designers and builders require you to select your finishes prior to construction starting. Even though we have filled out finish schedules for you at this point, we want you to see the space before we confirm and order your finishes. This process will keep you from having to imagine the space.
Step 7: Completion
You now have your dream home! We will take you through your completed home and explain everything to you. You will get a Hammonds Homeowners Guide that has information about your home and the things in it.

Southern Oregon's Insurance General Contractor
Has your home been damaged?
Whenever your home gets damaged by fire or water or something else, it can be a traumatic and stressful experience. Hammonds Construction and Development tries to eliminate stress when it comes to rebuilding your home. Many people believe that when their home is damaged, they call out the insurance adjuster and he or she tells them what needs to be done and how much it should cost. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters are looking out for the insurance company, not you.
Getting you back on your feet with little to No cost!
Trust Hammonds Construction to look out for your best interests. We work directly with the insurance adjuster to make sure you get your home back at little to no cost to you. Come talk to us as soon as you have an insurance claim. We will analyze your coverage plan and tell you what to expect. Depending on the project, we even offer to pay your deductible! Call us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our insurance specialists.
Southern Oregon's Green Custom Home Builder
Experts in Green Certification!
We, at Hammonds Construction and Development, pride ourselves on building and operating in the most environmentally responsible ways possible. Whether it's a new custom home, renovation or remodel, we look for ways to make the project greener and more efficient. Look to Hammonds Construction for the latest in high performance custom homes.
We are experts in green certifications for your home. We believe that third party certifications, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Homes, Earth Advantage, and Energy Star, provide a tremendous added value for you. You will realize this added value in several ways: reduced utility bills, increased quality and durability, and a reduced environmental impact.
We truly believe that a greener custom home is a better custom home.
Here is a brief explanation of the three main green certifications for your custom home:
Energy Star is a nationally recognized government backed program that certifies a home to be more energy efficient than a typical home built to code. It focuses on envelope tightness, insulation, window efficiency, heating and cooling systems, water heating, lighting, and appliances. Today, if we are building a quality custom home, Energy Star certification is a minimum certification that can be achieved for almost any home we design.
Earth Advantage is a whole home green certification program. It certifies homes as Earth Advantage Silver, Gold, or Platinum. Energy Star certification is included and improved upon with this certification. Besides energy efficiency, which is a large part of this program, Earth Advantage includes building a more durable home, water efficiency, indoor air quality, optimal site selection, resource efficiency (recycling, buying local products, minimizing waste, etc.), and renewable energy. One of the greatest values of Earth Advantage and the other green certifications is the independent third-party verifiers that physically inspect your home. This assures that you are really getting what you want. Another thing Earth Advantage offers is the Energy Performance Score (EPS). The EPS gives you a “miles-per-gallon” of your home relative to a code built home. This way, you can see how your home should perform from an energy use standpoint. Also, for a limited time, we are offering FREE Earth Advantage certification!

LEED for Homes:
LEED for Homes is similar to Earth Advantage in being a whole home green certification program. It has four levels of certification: Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum. Please watch the video below to get an idea of what you will receive in a custom home built by Hammonds Construction and Development.
Want to learn more about Energy Star?
"ENERGY STAR is the government-backed program that helps us all save money and protect our environment with energy-efficient products and practices. Whether you are looking to replace old appliances, remodel your home, or buy a new house, ENERGY STAR can help. More than 60 types of products, including appliances, televisions, computers, heating and cooling equipment, and even new homes can earn the government's ENERGY STAR label. ENERGY STAR also offers best-practice solutions to make your home more comfortable and reduce your energy costs."
