We are dedicated to making homeowners’ dreams a reality by building high-end homes that can be passed down for generations. We take pride not only in our exceptional craftsmanship, but also our core values of coordination, continuity, and communication, which are the cornerstones of our projects from start to finish.

TJ Glidden Construction specializes in large-scale custom home additions and remodels, though we don’t shy away from new construction. We transform additions and remodels into homes that look brand new from the inside-out, using our creativity and familiarity with state-of-the-art processes and innovative technologies. In our decades of experience in the Tahoe Basin, we have developed the skills and creative capacity necessary to complete exceedingly difficult and complex projects that are unique to this region.

Our construction projects can be found in communities around Lake Tahoe, including Tahoe City, Homewood, Incline Village, Meeks Bay, Rubicon Bay, Tahoma, Carnelian Bay, Truckee, Norden, Northstar, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Glenbrook. We have also worked on high-end projects in the San Francisco Bay Area and Napa Valley. We have nurtured relationships with a select group of architects, engineers, and interior designers from the Tahoe Basin to the Bay Area. We steadfastly use the highest-quality skilled craftsmen and subcontractors.

TJ Glidden Construction looks forward to being your go-to design-build general contractor and partner in construction as we create a home your family will enjoy for generations to come.
