Our Team


Luke & Leah Woolsey


Woolsey Construction was founded in 2007 by San Diego natives Luke & Leah Woolsey. After working in general construction for several years, Luke acquired his General B license and started in the construction industry through real estate investing and residential construction. Leah earned her real estate license in 2007 and worked as an agent for several years before transitioning into construction. After going through the process of purchasing, renovating, and selling property, they decided to use their knowledge and experience to build a company.  With an eye for design and a passion for construction, they have created a company that stands apart from the rest.

The Woolsey Construction team is dedicated to constructing homes and spaces that enrich people’s lives. The company strives to help its client’s vision become a reality. Whether a client is looking to build an addition to accommodate a growing family, create an outdoor dining space and casita for entertaining friends, or remodel a living area to better fit their needs, our team wants to help make people’s homes fit their lifestyle. We care about each and every one of our clients and ensure the quality of our work is always top-notch.

Customer Testimonials

"The end result is amazing! The process went smoothly, the crew that we worked with was well qualified, conscientious, and worked collaboratively with us. In addition, they were all great guys and we enjoyed working with them. We felt very confident that all of the structural issues were handled appropriately. If an issue came up, alternatives were discussed and agreed upon before moving forward. We would absolutely use Woolsey Construction again and highly recommend them!"

"I would highly recommend Luke Woolsey and his team for any construction or remodeling job.  From bid to final inspection they were great to work with.  His bid package included  everything that we requested which was just the first indication that Luke pays attention to the details.  His sub contractors do high quality work and Luke is there to make sure everything is perfect.  He kept us informed throughout the project and in the end  we love our casita!"
