My renovation project was a relatively small job, but you treated each concern, question, and challenge as if I were your most important client.
– Marylou Colver, client

Terrafirma Building is based on three values: Honesty and integrity in all aspects of our company, responsibility to the client and the community in which we live and do business, and lasting relationships. That means:

  • We deliver on our promises;
  • We are 100% accountable for all aspects of our work;
  • We're in the business for long-term success, not short-term profit.

Our business ethic starts with David and extends to our employees, the people whose services we use on our projects, and our clients.


Terrafirma Building’s reputation for excellence is supported by three areas of expertise: Traditional craftsmanship, technical expertise, and consistent, concise communication. That means:

  • Old-world craftsmanship: highly skilled employees and subcontractors, using fine materials to realize each client's dream;
  • Modern technology: fast access to all the information the Internet has to offer to serve our clients, and the latest computer software customized for each project's needs;
  • Ongoing, direct contact: first and foremost, with David, and supported by daily logs, project schedules, weekly or bi-monthly project meetings, clarification requests, email, and complete photo documentation of every project.

Whether a small new home, a complete residential development, or a new commercial complex, all of Terrafirma's projects receive our full attention, and the benefit of our experience.


Terrafirma Building: A company dedicated to developing and building for satisfied clients, in neighborhoods made all the more livable by Terrafirma's work. We've been doing it since 1990, and we'll be doing it for many more years to come.
