About Us

Otis Bradley is a custom home builder.  For over 30 years, Otis has built everything from shacks to mega mansions.  Originally from New England, Otis moved to southern California in 1990, where he continues building today.

Otis Bradley Company, Inc. builds custom homes for clients and their architects. Additionally the company does “design/build” –  a unique blend of both the architectural design and construction.  Otis studied architectural design in high school  and worked through the University of California’s Architecture and Interior Design programs as well. An avid building buff, Otis regularly visits architectural monuments around the globe.

In 2008, Otis and his family moved into their new home, “Casa Verde,” a state of the art Green Home designed and built by Otis.


Otis currently owns and operates Otis Bradley Company, Inc., http://otisbradley.com, a California Custom Home building business.  After spending many years getting his hands dirty pouring concrete, framing walls and installing finish carpentry, Otis now spends most of his time working with his supervisors, client’s designers and subcontractors overseeing every detail of every project.  The company has built everything from mega mansions to 800 square foot homes in styles ranging from actual 300 year old colonial homes to cutting edge modern styles and everything in between.

This … I believe … Custom home building is both art and science and an extremely personal journey for new home owners.  I believe in being completely involved in all aspects of the home building project while remaining flexible and understanding enough to be able to achieve the (sometimes changing) hopes and dreams of the new home owners.

Building a home continues to become more and more complex with the larger numbers of specialty sub contractors, complicated mechanical systems and challenging permitting processes.  Custom homes are by definition unique.  They are built once and therefore require experience, foresight, attention and problem solving abilities.

A good builder needs to be able to accomplish all of the above while being an astute business preson and able communicator.   Let’s get together and see if we are a match.

Otis and his family live in the beautiful city of  Ojai, California.
