Not only do we provide a free estimate for your construction project, but we will also provide you an estimated timeframe to completion. Generally, it takes around 6 to 12 months from start to finish, bearing in mind aspects like city ordinances, licensing, and topography.

The smart choice for your new home construction project is Solid Construction and Design. We help you get the most out of your budget and build a home that you will enjoy for years to come. Together, we will build the home you have always dreamed of.


There are a host of reasons why homeowners look to increase the size of their home. Whether it's growing families or new hobbies, adding one or several rooms to your home is an effective and increasingly popular means of increasing your space. When done right, not only does a home addition provide extra space but it adds value to your home and increases its aesthetic charm.

Another increasingly popular avenue homeowners take are ADUs (accessory dwelling units), which refers to a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of the original house. ADUs are an efficient use of existing space and are perfect for growing families or for having a dedicated space for hobbies or activities.

If you have extra space at the bottom of your garden, an ADU may be a perfect choice. We pride ourselves in handling every step of the construction process, from design and implementation to clean-up.

About Auburn

The gold camp of Auburn, California was much the same as the other early mining camps of Newtown, close to what is currently known as Lincoln, and Elizabethtown, which is located close to Iowa Hill. All were established based on an initial gold strike that attracted gamblers, saloon keepers, merchants, and miners very rapidly. Although it was deserted by 1854, in the fall of 1850, Elizabethtown was settled. In 1855, Newtown was established but, again, within a few years it too was abandoned.

Much the same as the other two towns, the placer gold that was easily located, was soon played out and the majority of the prospectors and miners soon moved on to the location of the next big strike. However, Auburn retained its population and grew to be the most substantial settlement in the County as the result of its location and its selection as county seat. In 1848 a man named Claude Chana was the first man to locate find gold in the Auburn region. This gold was located on the Auburn Ravine approximately a quarter of a mile just south of Old Town. Mr. Chana moved on rather rapidly. Along with some Indian workers, a man named Nicholaus Allgeir came to the area but they also left the area very quickly. In late 1848, two men named Tuck Warner and Joe Woods arrived in the region and at Rich Flat, which is close to what is currently known as Railhead Park, and located some rather large deposits of gold. Gold was also located in Old Town in what was known as the plaza, which was the location where many ravines converged.

There were only a few miners remaining in Auburn by the time a man named Hiram Hawkins arrived in the summer of 1849. Two Chileans, who were mining on Rich Ravine, which is located relatively close to the American Hotel, also known as the Auburn/Shanghai Alehouse and a single miner located on Auburn Ravine was trying to strike it rich. By this time the majority of the miners had left the camp and headed out for the rich strikes next to the Middle fork and North Fork of the American River.

There was a turning point in the history of Auburn during the winter of 1849. This was a moment between being in the Mining Camps in California by Gudde and slipping into obscurity, or becoming a permanent settlement. During the winter of 1849 and 1950, many of miners in the river canyons rushed to build more substantial cabins. However, most left the area for the closest settlement, which was Auburn.

Hotel keepers and merchants alike reacted rapidly to the invasion of miners who were looking for shelter from the inclement weather. As a result, many large public hotels were built. They were roofed with shakes and constructed of logs. There was a kitchen, gambling tables, a bar, and a great fireplace in each boarding house. During the sever winter of 1849 and 1850 the miners were basically stranded in Auburn. The roads to Sacramento became literally impassable as the rains came in deluges. The roads were completely impassable for packing and for the teams, it required all the vigilance of the driver to keep the animals on their feet. To get up and down the high hills, it was totally impossible for four legged animals to move forward at all.

The location of Auburn on the road that connected it with the roads that led to the gold camps was one of the elements that helped secure the future of Auburn. The primary port for incoming supplies and from there steamboats brought the goods as far as Stockton and Sacramento as far up river as Marysville was San Francisco. The early merchants in Auburn were Walkup and Wyman, the Hudson House, and William started running freight wagons to Sacramento City. The round trip usually took some three days of travel and one day in going down light and two days in coming back loaded.

He primary trail into Auburn and then to the remote gold camps on the riverbanks or in the hills was the route from Sutter’s Fort and later from the Embarcadero in Sacramento City to Auburn. Auburn was found to be the furthest that a freight wagon could travel during its earliest days. After arriving in Auburn, supplies were headed to the distant camps and were loaded onto pack mules or men’s backs for the journey over narrow, rocky, and steep trails. In good weather, the freight charges for this journey were $10 for each hundred pounds. However, in bad weather this cost increased dramatically to some $30 or $40. A man who later became the county sheriff named John Boggs recounted that a keg of sauerkraut that he had paid the reasonably sum of $10 for in Sacramento City sold that winter in Auburn for the outrageous cost of some $150.
