Gilbert (Gil) is a fourth generation Santa Barbarian who began his career in construction in the early 1980's after returning from an eight year "vacation" working as a dairy farmer on the island of Kauai. He was introduced to construction by his older brother who has been a building contractor in the Santa Barbara area for decades. Gil has been very fortunate over the past thirty plus years to have been involved in building some of the finest homes in Santa Barbara and he still loves the challenges and rewards that building in Santa Barbara provides.

Gil values the relationships that he has developed with homeowners and co-workers over the years as a great fringe benefit.

Gil and his wife Cindy have two grown boys and two grandchildren. Their non working hours are largely spent in the outdoors, exercising, and spending time with family.
