Danny and Cory have been friends since 1984. For them, construction was originally a means to travel and work, utilizing their skills wherever life took them. Born out of a discontent for the typical, wasteful approach to building, they decided to form Sierra Sustainable Builders. In the years since, they have completed numerous projects of remarkable quality in which they were deeply involved in every detail. They take great pride in their quality of work, creative solutions, and client relations.
Danny Webb has made Lake Tahoe his home since 1998. He started in the building trades before he was out of high school and, in 2015, claims 26 years of experience in the trades. Prior to Sierra Sustainable Builders, he trained for 5 years under a master carpenter specializing in high end finish wood work in some of Lake Tahoe's most notable homes. His comprehensive knowledge of construction from start to finish is complimented by his dedication to quality work and better building practices. Danny continues to enhance his skills, always on the look out for new materials and innovative solutions to the challenges of the modern shelter. For him, it is an artistic endeavor, seen in his tranformations of reclaimed materials into exquisite works.
After a long period building in Seattle, Cory Hannaford came to Lake Tahoe looking for a better climate to enjoy his passion for the mountains. He has worked in the building trades since 1991, gaining valuable hands on experience ranging from retail build-outs in San Francisco and fine carpentry in Marin County to commercial remodel in Alaska. In between periods of work he managed to earn a BA in Anthropology, travelling throughout Africa, Asia, South America, Europe, and North America, trekking and climbing mountains, a journey which continues. Along with many years of field experience, he brings a dedication to clear communication with our clients and a talent to solve the many challenges of construction process, from the initial idea through the final inspection.
