Mark West Springs Fire Rebuild

We had done some remodeling work for the Wait family a few years back. Unfortunately, they lost their home in the 2017 wildfires. We were honored when they chose Thompson Construction, Inc. to rebuild their home.

During the design phase, we made some adjustments that would improve the home’s layout and give the family the garage workshop they desired. We also opened up the kitchen and installed custom finishes and a walk-in pantry. Outside, we built front and back porches that are perfect for entertaining and allow the family to enjoy their home’s secluded location.


  • Foundations. The original home was built in the 1950s. The rebuild would have more modern touches.
  • Mud sill and floor joist. The home is located on about an acre of land in the Mark West Spring area of Santa Rosa.
  • Walls. Thompson Construction can build a new home in about six months.
  • Trusses. The Wait family expanded their rebuilt home by about 400 square feet.
  • Roof. Thompson Construction has been building new homes in Sonoma County for decades.
  • Roof. Thompson Construction is a family-owned company.
