Bend, OR Custom Home Building Services

Low-volume, no spec homes

We only build custom homes, never any spec homes. We are low-volume, and instead focus on building exceptional, fully customized luxury homes with a select group of clients. 

No Change Order Fees

We do not charge a fee for change orders. Changing your mind is part of any healthy construction project, and we believe we should have fun with it.

Low Overhead

Stillwater is a low-overhead organization. We don’t maintain an expensive office and we don’t have high-overhead administrative staff. We focus our resources on those that are directly responsible for the successful completion of your home.




Your pre-construction budget looks like this. Before we start, you will receive a comprehensive budget that is fully detailed, cost code by cost code. You will see which suppliers and subcontractors will be performing which scope of work, what they will charge, and our markup. We are entirely transparent. 

Gantt Chart


Your job site is kept active and efficient at all times through constantly-updated, formal subcontractor scheduling. Through our web-based client portal, you will have an up-to-the-day view of the construction schedule.

Owner-managed & team-built

As owner, I am directly involved in all aspects of the planning, budgeting, and building phases of your home. I personally manage, schedule, and quality control all of the day-to-day aspects of your build.



We work with exceptional carpenters, masons, tile installers, plumbers, electricians, and painters. We prefer to work with smaller, low-overhead subcontractors so that your home gets the attention it deserves, without incurring the additional costs of a larger, high-overhead organization. We use use only the top tradesman in the area. 

Budget vs Actual Reporting

Through our web-based client portal you will have constant view of how actual costs are matching up against our operating budget … line item by line item. This allows us to forecast the overall over/under of your entire project costs.

The home of your dreams is in sight! Get in touch with us to learn how to make it a reality.

Our Custom Home Building Awards & Press



I was raised here in Bend, and have 27 years experience professionally managing and executing custom homes, spec homes, and high-end remodel projects. I take a cost-conscious attitude and pair it with a business-minded approach to residential construction. I believe that constant client communication and well-scheduled planning makes a project successful. I also believe that exceptional results can be obtained with creativity and ‘smart’ choices, rather than spending a ton of money. I have built over 90 new homes in the Bend, Seattle, and Portland areas as a small-to-mid-size developer/builder.  I’ve served in roles varying from site superintendent to project manager, estimator/purchaser, and design & spec selection. I’ve personally built/remodeled 6 of my own homes, so I know what it’s like to write checks each month as a client building a home.

I grew up here in the Bend area, and have a wonderful wife and 2 children. When I’m not working on your house or at home with my family, you’ll find me mountain biking, rafting, fly fishing, or skiing.

We’re excited to work with you on your new custom home build, home remodel, or home addition here in Bend.
