Custom Commercial Construction

At Black Oak Builders, we have experience with custom commercial construction for our clients who own small businesses. Here you’ll see the interior build we completed in the Nectary at the Barlow in Sebastopol. We incorporated both natural building techniques, such as the Rammed Earth bar wall, and rustic modern design to create a unique feeling.

The Rammed Earth building method is an ancient technique for constructing walls from seemingly ordinary raw materials. It creates a beautiful bucolic slab, able to be formed to the client’s needs. For the Nectary, we made an exquisite bar wall out of this procedure. It fits their atmosphere perfectly, as well as the overall earthy vibe of Sebastopol. We’re always focused on our clients needs and finding new ways to better our community.

We have an expertise in custom commercial construction projects from masonry to drywall, and everything in between. We’re dedicated to assisting small businesses with creating their dream from the ground up.

Improving Your Outdoor Living

Here at Black Oak Builders, we understand the need for outdoor living. We live in such a lush area, filled with beauty — our homes should be built to be enveloped by nature, instead of shutting it out. We build magnificent decks, patios, and porches to create a serene environment for you and your family to enjoy.

Our decks, patios, and porches are built to last, withstanding the hail of icy winters and the baking heat of summers. The woods and finishes we have at our disposal defy the elements and stay beautiful throughout the year. Not only do these wonderful additions increase your living space, they are built to fit your lifestyle, and they improve the quality and value of your home.

We at Black Oak Builders take pride in our beautiful full-scale remodel of this one-hundred-year-old farm cabin in south Sebastopol. What used to be a decrepit, falling-apart building has been turned into a lovely guest house through hard work and skilled craftsmanship. While it is currently still a work in progress, our efforts have already vastly improved the aesthetic of the new home, and it will only get more astounding with time.
