With one new custom home nearing completion and two in various stages of construction, Homeworks Construction has recently demolished a 73-year-old St. Louis Heights home to make way for another on-site rebuild.

All four of the homes replace the residences of long-time owners. Each is customized by the Homeworks design team to serve the needs and reflect the lifestyle of multigenerational families and include accessory dwelling units (ADUs).


Homeworks president and chief of field operations Sylvio Boucher, who handled demolition of the structures, says the 7,860-square-foot lot is well located midway up the hill and provides ample space for the new house, ADU, separate garage and carport.

“We had to come up with a creative design plan to separate the main house from the garage due to a 10-foot storm drain easement crossing the lot diagonally. Because of the corner location, elevation varies over 10 feet from the top of the property to the street,” Boucher says.

The two-story house that will be built on the lot provides 2,830 square feet of interior living space, plus a 194-square-foot covered lanai on the top floor with a 180-degree view of the ocean and Diamond Head. An 800-square-foot accessory dwelling unit will be located at ground level. The property will include ample parking with a 540-square-foot garage and two-stall carport plus six additional spaces.


Homeworks Construction was named one of Hawaii’s best construction companies in Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s “Hawaii’s Best” awards program and “Builder of the Year” by the Building Industry Association of Hawaii (BIA). The National Association of Home Builders has designated the company a “Built Green Professional” and “Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist.” For information or to arrange a free consultation, call 808-955-2777 or go to homeworkshawaii.com.
