MY name is Steven Cavanaugh, and I own Cavanaugh Custom Construction. Even as a child I was interested in building. When there was free time in which to play, I was often found on (or in) the scrap wood pile found behind my grandparents house. My grandmother even claims to still have the first thing I ever built, which was two blocks nailed together. I guess even as a wee tike I enjoyed nailing things together.

That interest carried into high school where I participated in the Golden Sierra High School R.O.P. Construction Technology program known as “The Ultimate Cutting Edge” (U.C.E.) led by instructor Larry Highberger. While in attendance, I was made foreman of the U.C.E. at the tender age of sixteen. It was during this time that I also made a decision which would affect me so deeply that it still shapes who I am today.

The first day of competition did not go well. Being from the program (U.C.E.) which very often won this particular competition, I was very ashamed. The second morning in which we were scheduled to drive to Stockton to finish our shed, I did something which still affects me to this day. I did not show up. I left my friends and teammates to face the humiliation of losing on their own. The shame I incurred from that on event, which far outweighed that of trying and losing, has instilled in me one very simple principle. “ALWAYS SHOW UP.” Even if things aren’t going as well as they could be going, it is always better to show up and face the music, than to avoid responsibility by staying home.

I became licensed in 2008 and am specializing in the custom home sector. If there is anything I can do for you, please give me a call. I WILL show up.

General Contractor

Category: Skilled Trade / Crafts
I am a Licensed and Bonded Custom Home Contractor with experience with most phases of construction. I don't do electrical, but everything else is pretty much fair game. I am looking for small to medium sized jobs at the moment since I already have a job building custom homes for another contractor, and I enjoy working there. Siding and siding repair seems to be a strong point for me as well as deck building and gazebos, carports, etc.
