Who We Are

Michael Jacob, President

Michael is a Green Building Professional - certified by Build It Green - with over 32 years of experience in commercial and residential construction and construction management. He started Talia Developments in 1995.
Prior to 1995 Michael held management-level field positions with Carl N. Swenson Co. of San Jose, CA and Hensel Phelps Construction Co. of Greeley, CO, building large-scale commercial, institutional and public projects.

As a custom home builder, Talia Developments serves clients in western Sonoma County. All of our projects have been negotiated with the property owners and have been a collaborative process between client, builder and the design team. This teamwork approach supports the creation of appropriate, beautiful dwellings for our clients with a commitment to providing healthy indoor spaces within energy efficient structures built to last for generations.

An avid traveler, Michael observed sustainable and sufficient dwellings and communities on a self-guided 14-month bicycle trek through the South Pacific, South East Asia, and the Middle East in 1990-1991. He traveled again with his wife and daughter in South East Asia and South America in 2002-2003.

Michael co-developed Two Acre Wood in 1999, the first cohousing community in Sonoma County, where he  lives with his family.

On our current project which began in 2007, Michael serves as the owner's project manager for URJ Camp Newman on this multi-year phased re-development of their 495 acre campus which serves as a summer camp and year round conference center. The scope of work includes master planning, use permit procurement, design and construction management of all new infrastructure and utilities and over 30,000 sf of new buildings in the initial phases.
