The owner of this Kaimuki property demolished the original house (constructed in the 1960s) to build a brand-new multigenerational home for the homeowner’s mother-inlaw and daughter.

When homeowner Jamie W. was in search of a contractor to take on this project, she met with several construction companies and quickly decided on S. Tanaka Construction, a local, family-owned operation with over 30 years of construction experience.


“We chose S. Tanaka Construction over the others simply because Ryan Tanaka came to our meeting the most prepared,” the homeowner says. “He listened to us and designed exactly what we were looking for.”

The new home Tanaka designed for them was a 2,500-square-foot four-bedroom, three-bath house that included a kitchen, wet bar, living room, family room, outdoor patio and enclosed garage.

During the design process, the homeowners selected finishing products that matched their personal style, choosing to make only a few upgrades.


“We were pleasantly surprised with the company’s standard features. Items you would normally think of as upgrades were not,” Jamie mentions.

The construction of the home was also a fluid experience.

“As first-timers to the home-building process, we prepared ourselves for those hiccups you often hear about. The S. Tanaka Construction team communicated exceptionally with us and never made us feel like a burden with all of our emails and texts,” shares the homeowner.


“We ended up with a beautiful home, beyond our dreams. The best part was that it was all done within budget. S. Tanaka Construction made our home-building process trouble-free and even made suggestions in our best interest. Without a doubt, we’d do this all over again with them,” Jamie adds.
