Below is a sample of what some of our clients, architects, and vendors have to say about Olson Defendorf Custom Homes

We completed our new home building process with Olson Defendorf Custom Homes about 4 months ago.  Our house truly feels like a "home!"  It is a project of top quality and thoughtful execution.  Eric did a thorough and clear job of bidding our project.  We were able to follow the construction process, budget, and selections on a website maintained for us.  Troy, our construction manager, made sure the job got done as smoothly as possible.  The weekly phone calls from Eric and Troy were also a welcomed feature of the process.  It was a time to share information and timelines from both sides.  Follow up after move in to take care of minor issues has been attentive as well.  This is our 5th new home construction, and we can honestly say it has been the best!  Thank you!

We enjoyed working with OD Custom Homes throughout the entire process. The final product was just as amazing as we'd hoped.  We've recommended them to our friends and will continue to do so.

I am an Architect and have completed several homes with Eric Olson and Troy Defendorf with much success. They have just recently finished another project for one of my clients and we were all extremely happy with the final product that Olson-Defendorf delivered. Their process was efficient, seamless and executed on time and within budget. They were able to bring professional advice and solutions to complex construction conditions and stayed in constant contact with the homeowner and myself for updates, options and concerns. The project went smooth and there were no surprises....exactly how we want a project to run.

We had a very good experience working with OD Custom Homes. Our house turned out beyond our expectations.  They have a great system for selection process and change orders, which minimizes errors during construction.

A couple of years ago, we decided to rebuild our aging lake house. Olson Defendorf built our dream home! They were an absolute pleasure to work with. We got weekly calls updating the progress. We had never built a home before, but they guided us through the process. We were in good hands. I highly recommend them, not only because they're easy to work with, but also for their high building standards

We are the plumbing fixture supplier for Olson Defendorf Custom Homes and they have been wonderful customers of ours for nearly 2 years. We work with them on a weekly basis and have had a great experience with Eric, Troy, and Mindy. They have done what they said they were going to do and are builders with integrity. I have been out to many of their jobsites and can say they do wonderful work.

Mike Cottrell - Moore Supply


The Olson-Defendorf team was outstanding in their work and great to deal with at all stages of our project. Their approach to the initial bid process was very thoughtful and easy to understand, their on-going project management system is very helpful and user-friendly, their in house designer Mindy really makes the selection process fun and easy, and the construction team is very talented and responsive. We would definitely recommend Olson-Defendorf for your custom home build.

Olson-Defendorf constructed a home that I designed this past year. This is the first project that we have been involved in together and I must say I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. The work they did was excellent and the finished product was exceptional. As architect of the project I was most pleased with what they produced and their attention to quality and detail. I will continue to recommended them to my clients as a builder of choice. They have a tremendous future ahead of them as shining stars in our industry. They do it right.

Everybody told us that building a home with any custom home builder was going to be a bad experience in the end. Our reality was just the opposite. Eric, Troy and Mindy were all a pleasure to work with, they were always available, and they followed through on all of their commitments.

Olson Defendorf is one of the most professional companies I've ever worked with. I sell and install the tile, wood and carpet in their homes and they are a pleasure to work with. They plan and order enough in advance that we aren't rushed. They keep the cleanest jobsites I've ever seen. Their clients are given good information and communication about the progress of the house. I work a great deal with their desigher, Mindy, and she is so knowledgeable and creative
