Our Story

Troy and Eric met in 1999 while working for a national homebuilder in Austin.  Troy was a detailed-oriented engineer from upstate New York while Eric was a finance major from Texas.  Even with our diverse backgrounds, we both agreed a home builder should have the highest construction quality and superior customer service.  These values grounded us for the next eight years while our careers advanced. Eventually, we were managing a multi-million dollar custom home division for a national builder.  

In 2007, we started Olson Defendorf Custom Homes with Eric running the business side, and Troy building the homes.  We wanted our company to follow two simple principles: outstanding quality and superior service.  We knew at the time that there was a need for high quality custom homebuilders who also treated their customers and subcontractors better than others.  Following these principles, we have built an award winning, referral-based home building company in a few short years.  We invest in very little advertising at Olson Defendorf Custom Homes.  Most people who build with us are referred by their Realtor, Architect, and most of all, our past clients.  

Thank you for considering Olson Defendorf Custom Homes to build your dream home.  We have a passion for building one-of-a-kind custom homes, and look forward to showing you what our team can do for you.
