Chris's involvement in the family home building business started in his youth, working the odd jobs around

the homes.  Being "family" it was those jobs nobody else wanted to do which fell into Chris's lap.  Needless

to say, Chris learned the business from the ground up.

as Asst. Project Controls Engineer for an ENR top 5 Engineering/Construction firm headquartered in NYC.


In 1990, Chris moved his young family back to Sacramento to work in the family business.  Chris's main 

focus was coordinating and supervising the field work.  In 1996,  Ray retired & Chris became

President of Ray Grenz Construction and ran the day to day operations.

Local Suppliers and Subcontractors

Grenz Homes Inc has many relationships with both suppliers and subcontractors that date back 20 years or more.  There was a time in the home building business it was important to have your own crews.  Grenz Homes Inc. found that in today's home building climate, it works best to have specialized contractors you can trust to meet todays high demands for quality and efficiency.
