About RWC

Who We Are:

Ray Wolfe Construction, Inc had its beginning as Cruz and Wolfe Construction in 1979. During that time, a young Ray Wolfe partnered with the longtime and highly-respected local contractor, James Cruz, whose reputation for quality and professionalism had been well established in Humboldt County for decades.

In 1988, Jim retired and Ray formed the new company, Ray Wolfe Construction to continue the tradition. Under Ray’s leadership, the company grew dramatically and added many new capabilities and services without compromising its original core values.  Ray’s commitment to professionalism, quality, and craftsmanship continue to be at the heart of  company culture.

In 2007, Ray retired and passed the torch to his son, Ryan Wolfe, who continues to run the company in the same tradition and on the same principles passed down from his predecessors.  To this day, when a RWC home is listed on the resale market, “This home was built by Ray Wolfe Construction” is often listed as a major selling feature.

A Proud Member of the North Coast Community . . .

Because we call the North Coast our home, we enthusiastically give back to our community and the causes for which we are passionate. Locally, we have given consistently to organizations such as Arcata Little League Baseball and McKinleyville High School Athletics. We also donate to many national causes and organizations including Breast Cancer Research, St. Jude’s Hospital, American Legion, and The Wounded Warrior Project.

We’ll do everything we can during the process to make your experience painless – if not enjoyable.  And we’ll be with you every step of the way.

When it comes to the quality of your finished home, our reputation speaks for itself – We ARE the premiere homebuilder in Humboldt County and have been since 1988. Every home we build today must meet the standards we’ve held ourselves to for nearly 30 years.


Kitchen, Bath, and Whole-House Remodeling

We have performed countless remodeling  projects in our existence – from kitchens and baths to additions and whole-house renovations.
