Working with many builders feels like walking into a wall—no communication, no response, a lack of information about the process, costs and what to expect of the process and the project. Battlefield Homes invests the time and attention you need to be confident that you are making the right decisions and building a quality home with a team of professionals who care.
We design and build high quality custom homes, with personal attention to our customers and to each project, in a friendly manner and at a fair price.
Our homes are award-winning, energy efficient, and—most importantly—built for the customer rather than for ourselves. We build homes in all price ranges, ensuring the quality and features in each home that our customers expect, with the personal commitment of each employee to ensure that the way work is performed on your home is done the same way we would perform it in our own homes.
The Battlefield Homes Team is a group of individuals who each use their strengths and talents to design and build quality homes for our customers, using a process that is unique to Battlefield. Our employees have been with the company an average of over 10 years.
