"As President of Hammonds Construction, Inc., I have overseen my company doing major construction jobs for federal, state, and local governments, as well as large commercial and industrial projects of great importance and cost. And, of course, I can't leave out the custom homes for individual homeowners. A family's home is their castle. If they're going to the expense of building a home, they deserve it to be everything they ever dreamed it could be—and if we can help it, even more. In this rapidly-changing world, there should be at least one place where people feel completely at ease, happy, and fulfilled-and that's in their own home. With every project we take on, our job is to build with the highest degree of craftsmanship and the most quality features which add the greatest quality to the client's life; and to do it in an intelligent, cost-effective, sustainable, and innovative way. Thank you for allowing us to share our story with you."

Building has been a Hammonds Family tradition for six generations. From the time David was 7 years old, he often could be found at the side of his father, Harold Hammonds, a California builder and cabinet-maker. As David grew up, he spent afternoons, weekends, and summers working with his dad, and at 17 became a General Contractor.

David began California State Polytechnic University while continuing to work with his father. After nearly four years, David decided his future was in construction and left school to work full-time with his dad. In 1978, David moved his family to Southern Oregon and started David Hammonds Construction; which became incorporated in 1985. Today, Hammonds Construction, Inc. is one of Southern Oregon's premiere construction companies.

David, and his wife Karen, have two daughters, Lori and Kelly, and one son, Matt. Both Lori and Kelly have worked part-time in the Hammonds office; and each of their husbands currently work with Hammonds Construction. Matt began working for the company as a teenager, and continues today.

David and Karen also have four grandchildren, each of which they love to spend time with.
