About Caldwell Construction


Sean has an extensive background in the construction industry. His training includes apprenticing under
his father, a decade in the Carpenter’s Union, and training at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, all which paved the way for a career that includes designing and building high-end residential homes from the ground up to erecting 70+ story high-rises around the world, including Victoria/Vancouver/Whistler, British Columbia; Sydney, Australia; San Francisco, California, and San
Juan, Puerto Rico.  

For the past 18 years, Sean has specialized in residential projects throughout Santa Barbara County. Projects have spanned single room remodels to custom home builds, working with clients from Goleta to Carpinteria.  He understands the charm and aesthetics of each community and can navigate the complex permitting and development guidelines required at all stages of renovation.    



Used Sean as our contractor for a remodel of about 75% of our home. He was excellent, always professional. Very knowledgeable regarding the latest construction trends and techniques. Made timely and effective suggestions, he really ‘learned’ what our style and preferences were and never wasted our time with suggestions that weren’t productive. He was always on time, his employees were professional and worthy of our trust. He and his crew kept the work site neat and clean, was very livable throughout the project. Communicated well, by phone, text, and email.

Sean did an excellent job with our house with the renovations we needed to be completed. He is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, reliable, cost-conscious, honest and professional. He and his team work very hard, are always on time, and communicate throughout the process every day. Sean is well organized and orchestrated the project better than anyone I’ve experienced. I would absolutely recommend Sean and Caldwell Construction to anyone. We still have more projects to go and look forward to working with him again!

We called Sean after receiving a glowing recommendation from friends who have worked with him for a number of years. We were incredibly impressed with the work done at our friend’s home and were absolutely thrilled with the work he did for us. Sean has an incredible work ethic and has the knowledge and expertise that gave us extreme confidence in the work done. Sean gave us excellent advise and took our requests seriously, while making important recommendations to ensure our satisfaction. He provided us with choices that were of high quality, while taking into consideration our budget and desires. Sean’s dedication to detail was appreciated. We had new doors installed (including closet sliders), trim, baseboards, and all hardware. He also created a new attic access, recommending details that would not impact the home’s aesthetic. Sean’s confidence in his team was evident and all worked on a tight schedule, impacting us minimally from beginning to end (including impeccable clean up each day). Sean was also quick to respond to each email or text message, in addition to showing up to check on progress. Sean also graciously answered questions and gave advice on work not related to the project he was hired to handle. We have great confidence in his ability to advise and to provide excellent work. We highly recommend Sean and Caldwell Construction.
