Why Choose Us?

Hiring someone to build or remodel your home means choosing a partner in one of the most important projects of your life. That’s why, we prioritize trust, transparency, and collaboration as highly as the project itself. We care about developing a relationship with you, so we can work closely together to bring your vision to life.

We Are Different

With a background in design and a knack for problem-solving, Brian knows how to plan and manage complicated projects from beginning to end. Our decades of construction experience allow us to deliver stunning results while sticking to your budget and timeline.

Even more importantly, we understand that your home is where you live many of life’s most important moments. That’s why we treat it with the same level of care and attention to detail as our own.


There are many skilled builders out there, but not all of them take the time to build lasting relationships. We earn our clients’ trust by always being 100% honest and completely dedicated to their vision. Simply put, we care about the people we work with. The result is a low-stress, overwhelmingly positive experience for everyone involved


Our clients often tell us how much they appreciate our complete transparency in every aspect of the project. We keep you fully informed about every detail of your project, timeline, and budget so you know where every dollar is spent. We even provide you with access to a secure website that contains all the details of your project.


Great communication is crucial to any successful construction project. We want to give you the home of your dreams, which is why we work closely with you at every stage of your project to fully understand your needs and wants in both design and function. We’re here to answer every question and address every concern.

Attention to Detail

We care about the little things and take pride in doing our work right, whether it’s writing up your initial budget or completing ornate custom interior details in your home. By committing to excellence in even the smallest tasks, we can be confident that you’ll love the result, and you can rest assured that your home is in the right hands.

“Brian did a great job of helping us to refine our ideas and then turn them into a reality. We are so happy with the transformation his team of professional craftspeople brought to our home.”

Brian Schmidt

Owner, Builder

Brian started his own building and remodeling company during his early career in management and real estate. Every detail of every project reflects Brian’s passion for building and remodeling. He sets the highest expectations for every job and takes pride in visiting a home that was once just an idea or a drawing on paper. Brian knows how to:

  • Organize a project and manage the building process from beginning to end
  • Pick the best people to complete the work
  • Build and maintain meaningful relationships with his clients
  • Collaborate and communicate with complete transparency throughout each project

All of this amounts to an overwhelmingly positive client experience. Brian is proud to say that every project he has undertaken has ended with a hug or a handshake.

With more than 30 years of experience in the construction industry, Loren has a deep understanding of every aspect of the building process. He also has specific skill sets in areas including framing, company ownership, condominium construction, and international land development. He even built his own off-the-grid, custom home in Eastern Oregon.
