ABOUT DAVID FOSTER CONSTRUCTION
David Foster’s love of construction began at age eight when he helped his father restore the family’s old log cabin in Northeastern Washington State. They lived 60 miles from the closest town so instead of a trip to the lumber yard, construction began with felling and debarking trees by hand using an adze and a broad ax.
The experience of working side by side with his father, a master builder, taught David a deep respect for the land and inspired him to pursue a career in building. His love for great design and architecture later drew him to the luxury homebuilder Cello & Maudru Construction, whose projects have appeared in publications such as Architectural Digest and Better Homes & Gardens. In 1995, David left Cello & Maudru to start his own company.
At its inception, David Foster Construction worked exclusively on custom homes and commercial buildings in the East Bay city of Piedmont. In 1999 David decided to return to his rural roots, moving the business to his hometown of Napa. Now with over 20 years of experience, David and his team focus primarily on custom remodels for luxury homes in the Napa Valley. In addition to his skill at designing stunning interiors for high-end modern homes, David also specializes in period-correct Victorian and Craftsman restoration. As a Build it Green! Certified Green Point Rater, sustainable building practices are the standard on all of David’s projects.
When not he’s not working with clients, David stays busy remodeling his own fixer-upper, volunteering, feeding his passion for art, architecture and design, or surfing in Central America.
