We have a rich history of craftsmanship and relationships.

The Gabriel Builders Story

Decades have come and gone since Gus and Belinda Rubio founded Gabriel Builders (named after their oldest son) in 1984. But while times have changed, the commitment to quality and relationships that the company was founded on has remained steadfast. We limit the number of projects we take on, so we can ensure regular inspections by our site and construction managers to fulfill our brand promise of exceptional quality and high standards.

Gabriel Builders is a Certified Master Builder, driven by the fulfillment that comes from crafting homes with character, excellence, and individuality. We’re thrilled to see our clients enjoy the fruits of their vision. We’ve always prioritized relationships and the experience of home building, and it shows in what our clients say about working with us.

A Handcrafted Experience

Homebuilding isn’t just a business to us. We are passionate about our craft. Each home we design and build receives extraordinary care. And our attention to detail extends to our artfully conceived client experience.

Gus and Belinda Rubio established Gabriel Builders in 1984 with a vision for a business that would be known for impeccable craftsmanship and lasting relationships. As a former Quality Control Manager with a Fortune 100 company, Gus Rubio has been a true innovator in the building industry, implementing quality and customer service programs that have resulted in 63 awards for Gabriel Builders to date — including National Custom Home Builder of the Year from the National Association of Home Builders.

Gabriel Builders is a company with true family values. Their two sons, Gabe (the company’s namesake) and Nick, are highly involved in the company, as VP of Quality Control and Project Manager, respectively. They are both being mentored to helm the business one day.

Our Team

Gabriel Builders’ success is due to its incredible team of talented people who are dedicated to quality work that they take pride in. We’re driven by a shared passion for beauty, attention to detail, and a focus on relationships that makes us unstoppable as a team.

While our work ethic is unparalleled, we also believe in work-life balance and having fun. Our culture is collaborative, and we encourage everyone to bring their ideas to the table. Not content to sit on our laurels, we’re continually setting new goals for innovation and for delighting our clients even further.

But we don’t only take care of our clients. We also take care of one another. We often share lunch together, host events to celebrate personal milestones, and simply enjoy one another’s company as friends. We support one another wholeheartedly.

There were many areas where Gabriel Builders went above and beyond. If I had to pick one area where they excelled, it would be their complete dedication to each client. I always felt they truly wanted us to love what they were building. They went the extra mile when it came to follow up. Always making a complete effort to listen to every concern. We have gained much more than a beautiful home. We have gained a friendship with a remarkable family. It was apparent the day we met Gus & Belinda Rubio that building homes was much more than a job to them. It was something they loved to do! It gave them great joy to make our dream home become a reality.

Patty and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the extraordinary job Gabriel Builders did in creating our new home. If anyone had told me that we could have built a home from over 600 miles away with only three trips to the job site and have it turn out just as we envisioned with no worry or stress during the process, I would have said, ‘Impossible!’ But you and your team of professionals did just that.

The Gibsons

A home is intensely personal, and we believe that the process of building a home should be as well. As a full-service design-build firm with an award-winning sister company, LH Design Studio, we’ve simplified the process of building a home to make it seamless and cost effective for our clients. We also have extensive experience collaborating with acclaimed architects and interior designers, so our clients enjoy the flexibility of choosing their own partners or working with our turnkey team. Our client experience is why many of our clients have returned to work with us to build second and third homes.
