Every Builder has their story. ours began with the burst of a bubble.
We started in the middle of the 2008 recession when the world of home-building changed drastically. Because of that, we didn’t start with any preconceived notions about what it meant to be part of this industry, and we had a blueprint of what not to do.
Adopting a new vision to the crushed housing market was crucial and we knew it was the ideal time to innovate in order to separate ourselves. A novel approach to the new era of residential construction was not only needed but necessary for an industry that was ripe for improvement. We learned from others' mistakes and developed our own lean system from the ground up over the last twelve years. Instead of following the norms and being chained to tradition with paper schedules and redundant phone calls, we invested in technology to streamline production communication, implemented a design thinking focus to our process, sourced a team of service-minded experts, and listened to the experiences home buyers have had. By analyzing those experiences and putting emphasis on finding resolutions, we were empowered to further refine our process to one that works for today’s home buyers, and one that set our organization up for long term success in any market.
Twelve years and more than 300 homes later, we are still more driven than ever to push the envelope and be better. Let us be a part of your journey to a new home, we would love to help you along the way.
Times Change, Home Designs Should Too
Many builders offer a portfolio of homes for buyers to choose from. Those plans are often decades old and no longer relevant to our lifestyle needs today. Refinement is in our nature, so it is not uncommon for us to create entirely new designs every year. As a result, our buyers always get the latest layouts, trends, and elevations.
Guided, Not Constrained
In partnering with our clients, we use our expertise to ensure each home is high-quality but never lifeless. Our variety of available options allows for freedom to choose what you want, and we’re here for advice when you’re just not sure what to pick.
Our Core Values
We value the people we work with and the direct connections with our clients, so it is essential that we put forth the effort to understand who they are, their needs, and what is meaningful to them.
Trust is the keystone of all organizations and the products they deliver. We work hard to propagate a company culture with trust and integrity as the foundation. To that end, our people, products, and process are something we feel good about and believe in.
Every member of our team has an innate passion for construction and strives to deliver the best product to our buyers while caring deeply about the experience along the way. When authenticity and passion meet, extraordinary homes are built.
Starting at the top, leadership is integral to building and maintaining a team that is happy, cohesive, and committed. When beliefs and values like ours have unilateral buy-in, from sales through production and after-care, our customers will get exceptional service.
Our endeavor is to lead by example for those in our industry and it is our commitment to be responsible ethically, morally, and environmentally.
Ideate and Apply
Keeping our organization at the forefront of production and design, we are always casting a wide net to discover shortcomings and make improvements. We do this by streamlining processes through technology, exploring the use of new materials and construction methods, as well as developing innovative applications of traditional materials. With this focus of growth and change, our homes are built better.
Everyone on our team shares this common goal: Make our customers journey to the home of their aspirations, in a community they love, an enjoyable experience to be remembered. We do this with our refined process and a curated team of experts that is always there to guide the way at every stage. With this goal in mind we are committed to creating long-term value and relationships that extend beyond the homes we build and well after closing.
Supporting our Environment and Community
As Pacific Northwest builders, we hold the natural beauty of the area we live and work in high regard and want to leave it better than we found it. We’re conscious of our environmental impact, and in an effort to replace what is used, we have partnered with the National Forest Foundation for the past five years. To date, we have donated over 50,000 trees. Every tree donated will be planted in a National Forest to help replace trees lost during natural disasters.
Through exceptional horsemanship, War Horses for Veterans provides veterans and first responders who’ve experienced trauma the tools to recover, repurpose their talents, and reintegrate into their families and communities.
