J. Huston & Associates
Home Builders in Indianapolis
"We moved into our home, built by Jerry Huston, and have been in it for 14 years now. We bought the house on spec as part of a job relocation. My wife actually bought the house without me seeing it directly after meeting with Jerry and the realtor. The house was very well designed, having both a "wow" factor but also having a very pragmatic lay out. The builder's selection of the surfaces and finishing touches is largely untouched since we moved in, and the house from a quality of construction perspective has been the most satisfying aspect of our home purchase. The house was put together to be beautiful, functional, and, also, to last. One other thing which Jerry did which has been of great value over the years was to compile a list of all subcontractors who touched the house. We have used this as needed over the years, and Jerry has always been responsive to inquiries on recommendations, one as recently as last year. In short, we would eagerly go with Jerry again."
- Keith DeVries
Homes by Design
Home Builders in Indianapolis
"We used Homes By Design to build our dream house. We talked to the owner, Brad Bowman for almost eight years before we decided to build our home. I do not think we could have built our house with any other builder. It did not matter what idea I had, Brad visualized what I wanted and executed my vision in the most cost effective manner. Brad always had amazing ideas in design, and how to use every inch of space. If you want a truly custom home, this is the way to go! One of the reasons we went with Homes By Design is because before we built our home we spoke to many of his previous clients. Not one had anything negative to say about their experience. Now that our project is finished we join that long list of satisfied home owners. We are beyond thrilled with the end result!"

J. Morrow Construction, LLC
Home Builders in Indianapolis
"J Morrow built my new detached garage and studio apartment from ground prep to finishing (during a cold Indiana winter). Jeremiah and his crew of professionals were timely, tidy, respectful, creative, very professional and, at timez, went above and beyond the call of duty. The finished product is as beautiful as it is well constructed. I have already had friends contract with them."

Integra Builders
Home Builders in Indianapolis
"I hired Integra to build my custom condo. They also assisted me with the sale of my prior home. They were very responsive to my wants/needs during the construction process. The finishes were not standard contractor grade. It was fun to be able to almost design my condo and get exactly what I wanted. Very good experience overall."
- Amy
DB Klain Construction, LLC
Home Builders in Indianapolis
"We bought a new DB Klain home in 2008. The house was well built, and the builder was very responsive to our requests about small fixes that were needed after we moved in. DB Klain was easy to work with throughout the process. We enjoy our home and feel that the workmanship that went into it is of high quality. We would consider buying another home built by DB Klain if the need arose."

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Indianapolis market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Indianapolis has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Indianapolis also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Indianapolis:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
