Our Process

1 Getting to Know You

This step is where our in-house design/build team meets with you to discuss your needs, ideas, concerns, and priorities for the project. We want to get an in-depth look at you and your lifestyle. We will also discuss your budget to determine a scope that will work within your resources.

Our Process

2 Land Acquisition

We use our long-standing relationships with local real estate professionals to help you find the perfect lot and then be there to ensure the site is ideal for your needs. To confirm that your desired project is feasible we’ll do everything from bringing in soil and pool engineers and flying a drone to validate the views to reviewing city restrictions, and much more.

Our Process

3 Home Design

As the top custom home builder in Sioux Falls, we also have the best in-house architectural design team. Our design/build team will create 3 conceptual 3D models that fit within all of your desired functions, design, and cost parameters. You can then mix and match specific variations from each to piece together your dream home.

Our Process

4 Specifications Development

It’s the details that separate extraordinary new home construction from ordinary new home construction. Your Project Estimator will catalog every component of the project specifications —plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, finish carpentry, paint colors, and more relating it back to an estimated cost for your project.

Our Process

5 The Build

One of the many advantages of working with a general contractor that has a large full-time staff is that it’s not just “one person trying to do everything.” Our Operations Manager will coordinate all of our subcontractors and Deffenbaugh staff; the Selections Coordinator will help guide you through all of your specifications selections and ordering process and our Customer Success Coordinator will be sure all of your questions are answered and guide you through the construction process.

"these guys are the real deal"

If you are looking for someone who truly cares, who truly wants to deliver a great product and someone you can work with – these guys are the real deal. Can’t say enough good things about them. Handshake means everything.

Steve Watkins

"Deffenbaugh Homes was in a class of their own"

We met with several contractors and solicited many recommendations before selecting a builder for our new home. From the very first meeting it was apparent that Deffenbaugh Homes was in a class of their own. The Deffenbaugh team has a very rare combination of creativity and a structured organizational process that sets them apart from the rest. I couldn’t imagine building with anyone else.

John Sievers

"Number one builders in this area"

We found Jesse’s development, a gem called The Crown at Arbor’s Edge. We fell in love with a Big Sioux River lot which Jesse helped us pick out. The Deffenbaugh company and 4-D Design took it all to the next level. We feel they are the Number One builders in this area. The building process was outstanding. We are so grateful!
