“The team at Highland Homes was more than accommodating with all of our crazy requests!”

Avoid the middle man!  At Highland Homes you receive direct
and personal attention from the owner himself!

Our buyers LOVE the size of the company that they are working with. We are a small, local custom builder that builds just 10-12 homes per year. You will receive the personal attention that you deserve for one of the biggest investments you will ever make! Your home will never get lost in the shuffle of an oversized and undermanned company. You will work individually with Mike and Eric throughout the entire build process. You always have access and will LOVE the personal attention you receive in working with Highland Homes!

“I can’t say enough about my experience working with Mike and Eric!  They took personal customer service to a whole new level!” - Jim


NOT just your average builder! Our book smarts and street smarts will set us apart from the rest!

In a local building market with no education and experience requirements for licensing, framers turned builders are a dime a dozen. Did you know that in the recent real estate recession we experienced in the Treasure Valley, that 80% of the operating builders pulling more than one building permit per year went out of business!? Now that the market has improved, new builders are coming out of the woodworks! With an education from one of the top 3 construction management and business management schools in the country, combined with over 20 years of experience managing custom residential projects, our buyers LOVE the fact that their home is being managed by someone with both the experience and education to make sure it is all done right! They LOVE the fact that their builder is here to stay!

“The professional manner with which Highland Homes runs their business is reassuring and refreshing!” - Valerie



Enjoy all of the exciting and fun parts of building a new custom home, WITHOUT the unwanted surprises!
Most people LOVE surprises! However, when it comes to building a new home, surprises are the last thing you want or need! With all too many builders, the list of unwanted surprises as they relate to construction schedules and final contract price is far too long. Our buyers deserve to know what they are going to get, when they are going to get it and for what price! Throughout the build process our homeowners are given complete and transparent access to our construction schedules and all budget updates as homeowner selections and change orders are made. Our homeowners LOVE the fact that we’ve removed all of the guesswork to building and that they are left without any unwanted surprises!

“It was so nice to always be in the know with everything that was going on with our new home. We were never left in the dark!” - Todd
