This was our first time designing and building a home. My wife is a designer and we are both perfectionists...and we found the perfect match with the Deffenbaugh team. We were introduced to Dudley and Jesse and never looked back. From the very start, they listened to what we wanted and quickly brought it to life. There are plenty of reviews that get into their attention to detail, the professionalism of the team, the quality of everything they do. What I was most impressed with was how they followed through. They did what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it. Lastly, they take pride in what they create - its not a transaction for is the start of a relationship. We couldn't be happier.

★★★★★“I COULDN’T IMAGINE BUILDING WITH ANYONE ELSE 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.”
