The La Jolla community voted Murfey Construction Company the Best Contractor of 2013 — a title well-suited to the company’s co-owner brothers, Scott and Russ Murfey.

Whether it’s building a custom home, handling a major remodel or simply a kitchen or bath renovation, Murfey Construction will shine at the job. The company boasts the skills, experience and expertise needed to build a quality one-of-a-kind project, or transform a private residence into a dream home.

The Murfey brothers grew up in La Jolla and said they’re very familiar with the neighborhood requirements and why customers need to entrust their beloved homes to a respectful, honest, quality general contractor who uses the current technologies while still providing old-fashioned service.

“We think that personal interaction with our customers ensures a timely and cost-effective construction project with succinct attention to detail,” Scott Murfey said. “We are big fans of getting on a project’s team early to help plan and price out work during the design phase so that clients get a better understanding of what time and costs are involved in their projects.”

Murfey Construction will breathe some new life into a classic San Diego neighborhood with the November groundbreaking of Famosa Townhomes, Murfey’s contemporary townhome/retail project at the gateway to Point Loma. The complex will include nine residential townhomes and 2,128 square feet of retail space at the intersection of Voltaire and Catalina. The site’s estimated completion date is fall 2014.

Each three-bedroom, three-bath 1,500 square-foot townhome will feature a front door with direct walk-up access. They are targeted to young, urban families or empty nesters and feature two-car garages, roof decks, air conditioning, LED lighting, gas appliances and European cabinetry. Rooftop solar panels will provide electricity for the units.

“It’s a real neighborhood location that is pedestrian-friendly, where walking and bike riding are pretty much the norm,” Scott Murfey said. “Schools and several parks are nearby and there’s a brand new library just down the street. If you go one way, you have the harbor, and the other way is Ocean Beach, which has been revitalized by several new restaurants.”

— The Murfeys invite people to stop by their new offices at 1571 La Playa Ave. in the Crown Point neighborhood of Pacific Beach, (858) 352-6864 or (858) 405-0186, or view their project portfolio at and
