About Us


Your choice of a construction company is a crucial decision. The firm you choose must have standards of excellence that are as high as your own. They must have the imagination to share your vision, and the ability to bring it to reality. They must be master builders, with extensive knowledge, diverse skills, and valuable insights gained through years of successful experience. They must also be communicators, working in partnership with you, the architect, engineer, interior designer, and other specialists. Founded in Napa, California, in 1979, Ellis Construction Company is just such a firm.


Founder Larry Ellis, who has more than 35 years of Napa Valley construction experience and has built a strong, close-knit team of expert craftsmen. This accomplished team has constructed a wide variety of superlative homes and buildings. Their accomplishments run the gamut from custom homes and prize-winning remodeling projects, to retail outlets and shopping centers, to Napa’s extraordinary Jarvis Conservatory.


Everyone at Ellis Construction Company is committed to your total satisfaction. Larry Ellis will be involved personally throughout the project, from the first pre-construction meeting to the day you approve the finished work. He will be on site daily, working with the Ellis team, as well as with subcontractors and inspectors. This will help assure premium quality, as well as a continual, trouble-free construction process.

  • Ellis Construction Company will work closely and responsively with you to ensure effective communication, decision making, and problem prevention.

  • Every aspect of the project will be completed to a high quality standard and with devotion to detail.

  • Construction will be completed fully, building code requirements will be satisfied, and agreed upon deadlines will be met.

  • Monthly safety meetings will maintain a healthy work environment. (And, of course, Ellis Construction Company carries Worker’s Compensation and General Liability Insurance.)
