It's in the details

Client Experience

The Fernandez residence

We love all the details that are incorporated into our home — it is filled with hidden spaces. We mixed materials and styles to create a home that represents who we are and what we love. It is a home that is built to celebrate our family, make music and art, entertain and relax while enjoying the views of the Catalina’s. Tom and Jeff really understood what we were wanting in a home. They helped us create a home that was an extension of ourselves.

The Gelso residence

Encompassed by warm hues and distinctive wood and stone craftsmanship, we enjoy lounging in our western adobe home and taking in of our spectacular desert views. Having our own experience as homebuilders in the Lake Tahoe area, we value the opportunity PureBuild gave us to have the quality of details we were looking for and participate in every step of the decision making process for our home. We are pleased with the energy efficiency and ease of living that our home affords.

The MacDonald/Wright residence

We owned land east of Tucson; we always thought we would build our home there. In 2008, we visited the Mercado District and knew this is where we wanted to be. We are a close-knit, urban community. Being located just west of downtown, we are close to arts, culture, entertainment and the university. We love Tom’s work and his attention to detail. We wanted something more traditional on the outside, but a more modern interior. Tom worked with us to design and build our perfect home.

The Westergaard residence

In 1999, we purchased land on the east side of Tucson in Agua Caliente. Originally from New Mexico, we wanted our home to incorporate elements typical of New Mexico adobe architecture. After meeting with a number of architects and builders, we met Tom Wuelpern. He understood exactly what we wanted and worked with us to incorporate our ideas of adding a traditional Zaguan, rammed earth walls, territorial window and door trimmings, and a tin roof.
