With the elderly living longer and only so much land available on the Islands, housing in Hawaii has reached a tipping point.

In last year’s talk with Building Industry Association Hawaii (BIA) members, economist Paul Brewbaker stated that there are fewer new homes being built in Hawaii today since World War

II. By 2030, Oahu is projected to have an additional 122,000 people and will need 3,300 new housing units available annually to meet the demand. However, in 2013 only 1,060 building permits were issued for construction of single-family homes. This translates into a shortage of housing by two-thirds. Perhaps it’s not surprising then that Hawaii leads the nation in multigenerational living.

Proven solutions for housing crisis

With more than 25 years of helping hundreds of Hawaii families design and build their dream home, Graham Builders has the experience and knowledge to help today’s families deal with the state’s housing shortage.


As a locally owned and operated company, Graham Builders recognized Hawaii’s unique culture in the company’s earlier days, and has led the effort to design and build multigenerational homes for families all over Oahu. It was the fi rst home construction company in the state to have a certifi ed aging-in-place specialist to assist families that wanted to care for their elders at home. Today, Graham Builders has three certifi ed aging-in-place specialists on staff.

Graham Builders’ design staff closely works with all family members through a collaborative process to bring their dream home to life.
