“Building livable spaces of

peace & comfort is

my passion.”

-Venessa Hurka, Founder of Hurka Construction


A third-generation Santa Barbarian that graduated from California State University, Chico in 2002, with a degree in Construction Management, Venessa Hurka had an extensive career as a project manager for various high-end contractors in Santa Barbara before obtaining her contractor's license in 2014.  

TODAY Venessa seeks to find a steady pace in juggling. Juggling between her growing family, creative clients and dedicated team & vendors. There is never a dull day at Hurka Construction!

Like most moms out there Venessa is challenged between being the best role model for her own kids and being as authentic and in the moment as possible for her business and personal life. Follow Hurka Construction on Instagram and Facebook, a strong female general contractor in a male-dominated industry, but also a mom who knows what it is like to come home after a long day, kick up those feet and exhale… but most importantly loves to help create those spaces of peace and comfort for her clients too.
