Families can remain close and grow together within Hawaii’s unique ohana culture, which promotes caring for young and elderly relatives in multi-generational households.

However, the arrangement can also create added stress and strain relationships if a home is not comfortable for all involved. To assist homeowners with making these arrangements livable and feasible, HK Construction builds and renovates homes for customers looking to better utilize interior space to accommodate growing families.

HK Construction is readily available as a design-build company to take a customer’s concept and turn that idea into an enjoyable living space crafted to last for generations to come. For more than 40 years, HK Construction has kept local families in mind as the fourth-generation family business incorporates quality products and the talents of experienced designers and builders throughout each project.

These types of ohana-centric projects encompass children moving back home with kids of their own as well as focus on allowing older residents to “age in place” by creating safe environments for the elderly without sacrificing their freedom or restricting mobility. During a recent project, HK Construction worked with a family composed of four generations — including children, their parents, an aunty as well as grandparents — who all live under the same roof and needed to revamp the home to meet their unique needs.

HK Construction is well-versed in completing various projects with a focus on keeping lifestyles of all family members intact. Hawaii’s unique topography includes slopes and hillsides along with limited space for expansion, and poses building and design challenges that HK Construction has routinely overcome. Various design elements become important factors when facing these challenging issues, but the company’s vast experience gleaned from building on Oahu for more than nearly half a century allows the business to guide homeowners through the process to produce the most economical and functional home possible.

From concept to completion as your partner throughout the process, HK Construction will provide the design and functionality that best suits one’s lifestyle and property needs.

An important first step in learning about the home building process and determining what can be done to enhance one’s existing home is to attend one of HK Construction’s home building seminars. Questions will be answered at that time and interested parties may also set up a free on-site assessment. Call 841-1800 or 220-4714 to get more information on upcoming seminars and to reserve a spot.
