Larry Johnson Sr.
Larry Sr. has over 50 years of new home building and construction experience. After serving our country in the Marine Corps, he began working for his father in-law’s construction company. He started his own business soon after, doing mostly room additions, remodels and custom homes. He progressed to commercial construction specializing in concrete and masonry on large building projects and parking structures. His company has built more concrete structures than most California construction companies. A leader in his field, Larry Sr. is responsible for nearly 80% of the freeway sound barrier walls in California, a good example of which can be seen on the stretch of the 405 from Marina Freeway to the Getty Center. His masonry projects include the Sony Music Center, Green Hills Cemetery, Aviara Golf Course and Pelican Hill Golf Course.
Now Larry Sr. leads his family team in building beautiful, solidly construction custom homes for families in the South Bay.
