With nearly three decades in business, Graham Builders has helped hundreds of Hawaii families design and construct their homes. The award-winning local company has built a reputation as one of the top multigenerational and aging-in-place design-build firms by working closely with families during the design phase and sharing successful strategies that other families have used.

“Over the years we’ve learned that there are requirements that allow a home to successfully transition with changing family needs,” says Ryan Graham, vice president of operations. “A well-planned home will provide ease of access, privacy and promote independence. In the future, spaces and rooms can be repurposed as a family’s needs change.”

Graham Builders’ design staff works closely with families through its design process. Homeowners work face to face with their personal architectural designer and coordinator, which allows the designer to understand their unique lifestyle and goals. This team approach, coupled with 30 years of experience, produces homes that fit the individuals and family.

“It was very comforting to have one place to go to address all phases of the build,” says homeowner Bruce Miyoda. “We wanted to incorporate things that would not only provide for the present, but for the future as well. My wife and I had just experienced life changes with our parents and the accessibility needs that arise that you don’t normally think of. These needs were fresh in our minds as we started the design of the house. Graham Builders knew what questions to ask to help us incorporate our priorities into the design of our new residence.”

Founded in 1990, Graham Builders remains the only contractor in Hawaii honored by the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Business Ethics. Learn the ins and outs of home construction at Graham Builders’ free monthly “Building Your Home for Life” seminars. Register at or call 593-2808.
