Looking to the Future

As an industry leader for over two decades, Poul Norholm, dreamed of developing a construction company that would make beautiful transformations on the central coast of California one project at a time.

Our future is dependent on this technology. Norholm Builders has taken the next step to learn, and train ourselves in this new science to provide a better future for all of us. “Water shortage is an important issue to resolve as soon as possible. That is why I have dedicated our future to helping our community and local governments to resolve this problem.” Poul Norholm

Custom Home Specialist

Poul Norholm has been building beautiful custom homes for clients on the Central Coast since 1996. Since most of our clients are retirees, we work hard at building the home they have been dreaming of all their lives. Technology is changing fast along with the environment. We need to make sure our client’s homes are smarter and ready to handle these changes. Along with the new solar requirements coming in our area, alternative water sources are high on the priority list. Fortunately Poul has been working hard to prepare our clients for these issues. Alongside these critical issues we also want to provide you with the most advanced smart homes features to help you enjoy your new home to the fullest!

In addition to beautiful custom homes, Poul has completed many commercial projects with great success.  Here is a partial list of some of the project we have completed.

Remodels & Additions

Because we have our own excellent in-house crews, Norholm Builders, Inc. can tackle just about anything.  Poul really loves to work on renovating our client’s homes that are dated or in need of major help.  We design, permit and completely transform, kitchens, bathrooms and full home remodels, additions, landscapes and decks for our clients.  One of our goals is to improve the lives of as many residents on the central coast as possible. We do this with quality craftsmanship and excellent service.

We’ve used Poul for many projects: an addition and extensive remodel, long driveway construction, a large deck with a spa, landscaping overhaul and reconstruction after a fire. No matter what the project, Poul approaches his work with a unique eye for detail, with the utmost honesty and integrity. His estimates are also very good. Poul is the best, which is why we call him for all our construction needs.

Poul is a wonderful contractor to work with on a project. I think what distinguishes him from many others, is that he​ LISTENS to you and works to make your wishes happen.

Poul is the best in the construction business… He sees detail, does what he say he will do for the estimate he has given. He is on the job everyday and his estimates are the best we have ever seen. It is all in the details and that’s what you get when you call Poul!

First, let me tell you about me. I am not easy to work with. I am a type A personality and many of my friends bet I would never find a contractor that would stick around and build me a house. In addition, I am very frugal and demanding (however Poul agrees I am fair). I knew nothing about construction and am very curious. Considering the above, we were blessed to have Poul Norholm as our contractor. Poul is even keeled and is the type to adapt to most personalities. Honesty, keeping his word, dependability, accountability are all traits he possesses and would need to have in order to work with me. Technically, Poul is incredibly knowledgeable and works well with and is respected by his sub contractors. Without exception every sub he selected was top drawer. That was especially important in that we pressed each of them very hard on their bidding which led us to be under our cost estimates. The quality of our home speaks for itself. I told Poul that if he has clients seriously interested in his services, my home would always be open for him to show his work. Barbara and I could not have been more pleased. Poul is one of a kind.
