A family owned and operated construction company

Salonen Construction

Salonen Construction is a family-run business with four generations of building experience.

We live in and serve the Mariposa area. We are committed to helping our community, one project at a time!

The majority of our jobs focus on remodeling—in particular: kitchens, baths, bedrooms, and decks.

If we take on a New Home Construction build, we plan on committing the better part of a year to it. (We are a small crew and a house requires a big chunk of time to complete.)

What We Do



Commercial and Residential Construction

Residential construction is the heart of Salonen Construction.  JP and the team have taken hundreds of outdated, underutilized, and damaged spaces and given them new life that is functional and beautiful.   While our focus is on residential construction, we do commercial work as well.  We particularly like helping non-profit organizations optimize their work space, just as they help the community.



Remodeling is probably our chief expertise, working on an existing home to make it even better! Whether to change and personalize the aesthetics, improve the energy efficiency or to otherwise improve a space, we are masters at breathing new life into a home.


New Home Construction

We do a house build, start to finish, about every other year (it is a year long process from concept to turn key). It’s a big commitment for us and the homeowner. So it is something we choose to do less frequently but with great care when we do.
