Hill Construction partners with nationally acclaimed architects to create extraordinary, enduring homes in San Diego, Orange County, and across the country.


Hill Construction understands that a custom home is more than a structure – it’s a reflection of its owners, a place where memories are made and traditions honored. Often, it is also the owners’ single largest asset. For all of these reasons, we strive to ensure each client’s building experience is smooth, enjoyable, and exceptional.

The art of building a custom home requires precision in the field and behind the scenes, with thorough planning and seamless coordination. For truly unique designs, it also takes continual innovation. When architects raise the bar, we’re at our best, building highly demanding projects without sacrificing personal service. Our passion for excellence has led Hill Construction to win numerous industry awards and the highest prize of all: repeat clients and glowing referrals.


The Hill family is proud to have lived in San Diego County since 1909. Peter Hill founded our company in 1975, building and remodeling homes in La Jolla, Mission Hills, and Rancho Santa Fe. His son, Ryan, developed a passion for custom construction from an early age: As a child, Ryan enjoyed visiting his father’s jobsites, and as a teenager, he worked summers in the field.

After earning a degree in Construction Management, Ryan eventually took the reins of the company. His outstanding vision and leadership have grown the business and carried the Hill family tradition forward. Today, Ryan Hill leads a dynamic, dedicated team who continues our unwavering commitment to quality while building extraordinary high-end projects in Southern California and nationwide.
