Santa Fe has been our home for over thirty-five years.
Woods was founded in 1977 by Sharon and Robert Woods. Together they pioneered the design-build concept with architectural design and construction being performed by the same team. Sharon and Robert quickly built the company from the ground up into one of the most recognizable brands in Santa Fe, completing numerous award-winning projects and were featured in prominent publications such as Architectural Digest and This Old House.
Sharon has designed and built hundreds of the finest homes in Santa Fe for four decades. She co-authored the best-selling coffee table book, Santa Fe Style and Santa Fe Homes. She was appointed by two different Santa Fe city mayors to chair the City of Santa Fe Historic Board and has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2010 Santa Fe Business Woman of the Year Award.
In 2008 Sharon’s sons, Rob and Shane, joined the company and now serve as second-generation owners, while Sharon has remained with the company to oversee design.
“We are proud to have been born and raised in Santa Fe. We are blessed and honored to have been able to grow up alongside the Woods brand. The employees, subcontractors and clients have always felt like our extended family. The company’s office was a second home. Every milestone event growing up was filled with Woods employees and clients. Our parents instilled in us how important it is to take care of people and take pride in what you do.
“As we have become second generation owners, we have a deep level of commitment to continue and expand the Woods legacy. We know to have a successful company we have to take care of our clients, employees and subcontractors. We consider it an honor to create hearth and home for our clients and we are passionate about ensuring not only that they are satisfied but their expectations are exceeded.
“As we raise our own children, we feel the importance of instilling the same set of values in them that our parents instilled in us. We want them to be proud of the company that bears their name, as we did growing up, and understand the importance of making sure Santa Fe remains the magical place it is.”
-Rob and Shane Woods
For each and every project we bring this depth and breadth of experience and expertise along with a commitment to excellence and to serving our clientele. We are proud to be a part of the Santa Fe community and hope to welcome you to this special place.
“From the beginning of this process we knew we wanted Sharon Woods to remodel our home but we did our homework and interviewed other builders. We quickly realized that Woods Design Builders would confidently execute our vision. Sharon, Rob, Shane, Chris and their entire team were always easily accessible throughout the entire remodeling process. They were always prompt to get back with us when we had questions or concerns. Building a home can be a daunting process, but you can be sure that Woods will be there through the entire project.”

“In Sharon Woods we found a personable, competent, respected, and experienced single source for dream home fulfillment. Woods fulfilled our dreams in this home, and we continue to be amazed and pleased at the detail in construction and finish. Our life in our new dream home is well beyond expectations. Over the top, more than expected, more anal than the client, what can I say when I don’t have the vocabulary — a perfect home just became more perfect thanks to Woods’ ongoing support.”

“Collaborative, creative and FUN! Woods listens to the client. Their subs are the best they can find and they hold their feet to the fire. They meet their deadlines. Woods tells you — and follows through on the promise — that they will not desert you, even after the customary year-long responsibility. And the design talent of the founder, Sharon Woods, is just amazing. She made our home what it is and I bless her every day. They are honest and they are pleasure to do business with. Our only regret when the house was finished was that we wouldn’t meet with them every week or more!”
