5 Top Custom Home Builders in Spokane, WA

If you live in the Spokane area and need a custom built house, you’re in luck. There are a good number of very, very good custom home builders.

With a recreation hotspot in Northern Idaho nearby, the demand for such homes is high which means the surrounding area can support very skilled builders and architects.

In fact, in our 5 top list below, you’ll see what we mean. Frankly, there are many great home builders but we particularly like the work of the five listed below. FYI, the list below is in no particular order.

Hanson Carlen

For over 40 years Hansen Carlon has built custom homes in the Spokane area. They are a full-service builder that helps their clients from idea to design through a finished home. Their team includes architects as well as construction crews. The owners are third generation owners and know both the Spokane area well and building homes well.

What got our attention was the positive client feedback and their spectacular portfolio of work featured on their website and Houzz. When you look at their work, you’ll see they are very capable of building high end homes that stand out.

Contempo Homes

I love it when businesses focus on a specialty. Often results in top-notch quality and skill. Contempo Homes is, as the name implies, a home building company that focuses on building contemporary style homes. I’m doubly impressed given this company is owned by a young couple – the Tedrows who have 15 years experience building.

When you check out their portfolio of work you’ll notice the Tedrows have a distinct style which fortunately is popular these days (it’s a style I sure like).

Parsons Construction Inc.

For nearly 40 years Dave and Karen Parsons have been building custom homes in the Spokane area. You can tell they have a great deal of experience given the quality in their homes (just check out their portfolio).

They’re a full-service building company that builds custom homes, renovations and commercial projects.

With their vast experience, they’ve built homes in all styles including luxury lakefront houses, contemporary houses and more. You definitely want to check out their work.

Monarch Custom Homes

Monarch Custom Homes is another husband and wife team, each bringing expertise to their clients’ homes. Joel Anderson handles the design and builds while his wife, Shawn is a veteran of the financial services industry and helps clients with the financing side of getting a custom home built.

The end result, as their gallery of work shows, is an incredible home. They know how to build very high end, which is a price level in demand for the many vacation and lakefront homes they’ve built over the years.

Several of the homes they’ve built have been included in the “Parade of Homes” which in my view is a tremendous honor and a testament to the quality of their work.

Aspen Homes

Although located in Northern Idaho, Aspen Homes serves the Spokane area as well. It’s another husband and wife team, which is super cool. Todd got started in the home building business as a young boy (10 years old). Approximately 20 years ago, he and his wife Zetta launched Aspen Homes and have never looked back.

This company also has homes included in the Parade of Homes. The company is also a registered primary builder. Aspen has garnered many accolades and the client feedback is very, very good.
