I grew up in central Iowa around the new construction industry. I learned early about hard work in my family's foundation business.  Laffoon and Company, Inc. is one of the largest & most respected foundation companies in the Des Moines area since 1971.

After I graduated in 1996 from Mt. Mercy College in Cedar Rapids, I formed Select Builders, Inc.  I started out one home at a time in Norwalk.  Today I usually have around four or five homes going in various price ranges around the Des Moines Metro.

When people hear about Select Builders, Inc., I want them to know that quality and excellent service go into each home we build!

I currently live in Johnston with my wife and two busy kids.  I love spending time with my family and I keep busy helping coach some of their various sports.  When I have some free time I enjoy golfing with friends.

I'm working hard to build quality new custom homes.  I think that planning, quality products, and attention to detail are what set my homes apart.  With referrals, I am gaining more and more satisfied customers each year.

If you have a plan or need help selecting one I can help.  I'd love to work with you building your new home.
