Every Builder has their story. Ours began with the burst of a bubble.
Our journey began amidst the turbulence of the 2008 recession, a time when the landscape of home-building underwent a profound transformation. This unique circumstance allowed us to enter the industry without any preconceived notions or fixed ideas about how things should be done. Instead, we approached our venture with a clear understanding of what to avoid based on the lessons learned from that challenging period.
Recognizing the urgent need for change in the struggling housing market, we understood that it was the perfect time to think differently and stand out from the crowd. The residential construction industry was in dire need of a fresh approach to adapt to the new era, and we were determined to lead the way. Drawing lessons from past mistakes made by others, we spent the past twelve years building our own efficient system from scratch.
Rather than sticking to the outdated practices like paper schedules and endless phone calls, we embraced technology to streamline production communication, incorporated a design thinking focus to our process, sourced a team of service-minded experts, and listened to the experiences home buyers have had. By carefully analyzing their feedback and putting emphasis on finding resolutions, we continuously refined our process to cater to the demands of today's home buyers. This approach has not only ensured success for us and our customers but also positioned us well for the future, regardless of market conditions.
Over a decade later and more than 300 homes delivered, our passion to push boundaries and improve remains stronger than ever. We would be honored to be a part of your journey to a new home, offering our support and expertise 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
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.
