Since 2015, BAM Builders has focused on quality craftsmanship and innovation while offering customers a comfortable custom home building experience from start to finish. The BAM Builders team utilizes only the highest quality materials and the most professional team and subcontractors to ensure exceptional construction and materials. They specialize in energy-efficient custom homes and ensure that quality and unique design are at the heart of it all. Since starting BAM Builders in 2015, the team has experienced growth while keeping their personal, unique touch. BAM Builders loves to build custom dream homes, as opposed to mass-produced houses or showcase pieces. The entire BAM Builders team takes great pride in their work, their subcontractors’ expertise, and the quality of their materials. BAM Builders prides itself on incorporating technology into the homes they design to make the homeowner’s life easier, not more confusing.

The BAM Builders team’s favorite part of any build is the design and planning phase when they get to work with each customer to determine…

What they want their home to feel like

What life stages they hope this home will see them through

How they plan to use their home

What kind of technology they want to include in their home

As spelled out in the pre-build process, the owners meet with each customer to ensure that they have thought through their floor plan before the first shovel touches the ground. Whether you own a lot or are looking for one, we can use your floor plan, or work with you to design a floor plan customized to suit your unique needs and specifications. During this phase, BAM Builders especially encourages customers to think about aging-in-place options; whether a customer has a wheelchair or walker in their life, some simple design elements can be included in any home to make them truly accessible.

As the BAM team has experienced growth, they introduced their home remodeling services in 2020, BAM Remodeling. Just like the building process, the remodeling team works closely with professional subcontractors, talented designers, and experienced artisans to ensure an easy process and exceptional results. BAM Remodeling is ready to tackle complete home renovations, as well as specialized remodeling for localized areas of your home. The team works hand in hand with homeowners to ensure they meet their visions throughout the entire remodeling process.
