At Houchin Construction, our knowledge extends to all phases of your project. As both a general contracting and architectural firm, we are able to develop “buildable,” cost-effective designs. We know how to organize and coordinate people and information to streamline the design and building processes. We know what is needed from each member of the project team, when it is needed, and how to communicate those needs.

We are very proud of the team we have assembled at Houchin Construction. We recruit and hire people who understand our commitment to our clients and embody our core value of integrity. Our employees have tenures ranging from 1 to over 20 years, a testament to the culture of teamwork, appreciation, and support we have built. Our extensive subcontractor, supplier, and consultant network further extends the abilities of the team we head up for your project.

We have completed numerous residential, commercial, and industrial projects in the past. But the experience that Houchin Construction brings to your project is about more than just the number or types of projects we have built. It’s about taking those experiences and applying them to your project. It’s about learning from prior successes and challenges, and incorporating those lessons into our best practices for future projects. And it’s about being open to new opportunities to continue to build that experience even more.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • “Houchin Construction’s attention to detail before beginning the building allows for any issues to be resolved and prevents possible problems once construction begins. Living out of state was a major concern, but technology allowed us to do much of the design work via the Internet, and informed on progress via email and pictures. Houchin Construction has a good team and they surround themselves with professionals that also share the same values and integrity that allows them to produce and excellent product.”

    -Tom and Rhonda Burke

  • “Houchin Construction worked with us from the start, reviewing plans as developed, and making recommendations for cost-effective alternatives to certain design elements. They listened to our ideas and wishes, and accommodated them where possible or helped us find a different option.”

    -AJ and Natalie Zellers

  • “The Project Manager took me to the various vendors to see material samples prior to starting the project.

    -Louisa Wiener

  • “From start to finish, the experience was positive. We always felt that our best interest was being served.
