Director of Construction
Ed Keith has spent most of his entire professional career in the construction industry. For 34 years, Ed served as superintendent and vice-president of construction for Cobblestone Homes. During this period, he oversaw the construction of numerous subdivisions in Sonoma County. Ed has vast experience in all facets of residential construction and often says "my greatest joy has been passing on my experience to my sons, Eric, Dave and Bill. When I look at how knowledgeable and successful they are, I feel glad to have made such a contribution to the Sonoma County construction community." After completing Cobblestone Homes' Miramonte subdivision in 1998, Ed moved into a new home and lived there for 18 years before relocating to Las Vegas with his wife, Mary. Following the October fires, Ed returned to Santa Rosa to work alongside his sons in the reconstruction of the community.

Chief Construction Officer
David Keith brings a lifetime of entrepreneurial spirit and marketing experience to Sonoma County Builders. He has been in the construction business since the age of 18, and operated heavy equipment setting trusses for Cobblestone Homes during summers. Dave attended CSU Sacramento, where he earned a B.A. in Economics. After college he was recruited by Shell Oil and advanced to the marketing management division. After 10 successful years with Shell, he realized he missed construction, and with his brother Eric, launched K2 Environmental which specialized in mold and water damage remediation. After growing the company into four locations, the brothers sold K2 upon receiving a generous offer from a national company. David's newest company, NorthBay Environmental, Inc., was started in 2011. Together with his father, Ed Keith, NBE has grown into the premier mold remediation company in Sonoma County. In 2015, NorthBay Environmental added residential remodeling, general construction services, and new home construction divisions. Discovering a new passion for residential building, David launched Sonoma County Builders, LLC in 2016.
