Our Services

We offer a wide range of construction services, including the construction of new homes from the ground up, additions or remodels to existing homes, commercial buildings, and professional project management for all clients.

New Home

Many new residents are drawn to the beauty and charm of our community, as well as the semi-rural open space that offers construction opportunities which urban areas do not. Longtime residents looking to upgrade often want something that suits their unique needs and tastes.

With New Home Construction we can help you create your perfect home, from multi-generational estates where families can gather, to low-maintenance homes perfect for retirees and active lifestyles. Let us help you create a home that you can live in every day and will serve your needs for years to come. If you can dream it, we can build it!

Many existing homes were constructed before open floor plans came into fashion. In addition, you may be increasingly unhappy with an outdated bathroom or non-functional kitchen.

Our team can help you create that open concept to make your home your own –bringing it into the modern era. Along with kitchen and bathroom renovations, new floor plans, and other home improvements, we also build home additions and backyard features. For example, decks and fire pits are some of our most popular backyard renovation projects. 

Additions &


Homeowners often find themselves surprised at the level of project coordination required for even the most straightforward home renovations. With every project, there will be permits to file, subcontractors to coordinate, and unexpected challenges to work around.

Harding Custom Builders removes the burden of planning from your to-do list and handles project management in-house. We can even provide remote project management and coordination services for projects throughout Nevada County and beyond! 

While home construction and remodeling are our key focus, we also offer some commercial construction services.

Retail improvements, steel building construction, and tenant improvements are among our most frequently requested commercial services. 


Why Choose Harding
Custom Builders?

When you’re building your home or the physical space for your business, you’re deeply invested in the outcome of that project on a personal level. Shouldn’t your builder feel that same connection to the project? That’s how we feel here at Harding Custom Builders, which is why we take the time to foster relationships with each of our clients and are available through every step of planning and construction. What other builders might think of as going the extra mile, we think of as essentials for doing business. Here’s a closer look at the difference with us:

We’ll work outside normal hours when needed. To us, a project isn’t finished when the clock strikes 5 p.m.—we don’t pack up until we’ve finished the day’s work.

In addition to our unwavering standards for client communication and reliability, we ensure quality work by maintaining a consistent construction crew in-house. Patrick Harding is a licensed and insured general contractor, and our whole team is appropriately licensed or certified in their fields of expertise.

About Us

Harding Custom Builders is locally owned and operated by Patrick Harding, who has been working in construction since  1994. In 2008 he earned his license as a general contractor, and Harding Custom Builders was created. Since the beginning, it’s been our mission to not just build beautiful, quality homes, but to help create a vibrant and welcoming community.

We’ve created great relationships with homeowners, subcontractors, material suppliers, real estate professionals, business owners and our neighbors in Nevada County. Some of our greatest local contributions have been concrete work for the community shade structure in Condon Park, as well as fundraising projects in collaboration with Grass Valley School and Mt. Saint Mary’s School.
