Why We’re Different

Tourmaline crafts homes of extraordinary quality.  We use superior materials and always sweat the details. Our design has won prestigious awards including the Icon award for Best Design of a Custom Home in San Diego in 2015, 2016 and 2017, and we were a finalist for the National Association of Home Builders’ 2017 nationwide award for best design of a custom home. We were awarded the 2017 Icon award as the Homebuilder of the Year for San Diego.


Unlike other builders, we don’t hire contractors to build for us. All of our homes are constructed by Tourmaline employees. For us, design and fine workmanship take precedent over the ‘just get it done’ model that so often characterizes our industry.


We are fully invested in producing a superior product. We stand behind what we build. And if there is ever a problem, we’ll do our utmost to make it right.


We have an unwavering commitment to excellence – in design, in the caliber of materials we use, and in our craftsmanship. And that commitment is reflected in the final product – an extraordinary home that we’re proud to have built and you’re thrilled to live in.
