Building a Great Home Starts With a Great Team

“Everyone says how stressful it is to build a house, but the Heartland team actually made it fun!  No stress at all!,” said one of our recent clients, Jennifer.

We love hearing that from clients, because one of our goals is to make building a custom home enjoyable, and even fun!

Jennifer and her family recently moved into a home we custom built for them, and they love their new space (as do we)!


We first met Jennifer and her husband Tyler at the Parade of Homes. “We were impressed with the design and quality. We attended Build and Brew where Rich explained his building process. Tyler is an engineer and was very impressed with this process. This is the main reason we chose HB. We then set up at meeting with Rich and Cindy. We felt that they were honest, trustworthy, and very easy to work with.”

“They made us feel like we were their only clients. Every time we spoke with Rich, he thanked us for choosing Heartland. They are genuinely nice, grateful people!,” noted Jennifer.

When we meet with clients to design their custom home, we listen carefully to how they describe their lifestyle and what they desire and need for their new space, and then we design their home around that.

Jennifer noted that “we didn’t have a pantry at our other house, so I love having so much space for our food, servingware, bakeware, and small appliances.”



A home with dedicated organizational space was also important to Jennifer and Tyler, parents to two elementary-aged children. The lockers and command center we designed for them “allow our family to stay organized and I love that there is a place for everything – even a spot to charge their school iPads and laptops!”

They shared with us that they wanted both a fireplace and a TV in their living room, but they didn’t want their TV over their fireplace. We designed their living room accordingly, and according to Jennifer, “it turned out beautiful!”

Jennifer noted her appreciation for Heartland’s team approach and especially for the design assistance Lisa (Heartland’s interior designer) offered. “She made choosing our selections a breeze. I appreciated her honesty and sharp eye for design. She also helped us stay in budget,” said Jennifer.

“Every person on the HB team has been amazing,” she observed.

We echo that sentiment. Our team is amazing.

Our staff is top-notch and works extremely hard to ensure that our clients love their homes and have a good experience while building.

Our subcontractors are excellent in their fields and trades.

And we consider our clients part of our team. We work together and collaborate as partners to design and build a home they will be proud of and happy in for years to come. We were thrilled to team up with Jennifer and Tyler and to present their new home to them.

Thanks, Jennifer & Tyler, for giving us the opportunity to build your dream home!
