Sioux Falls Luxury Home Living

When building a new custom home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, building a custom home can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Are there budget considerations? What about the style, design, and plans? Is the lot located in the right neighborhood or location? Are there homeowner association, community, city, or state restrictions that may impact the design or plans?

Many owners wonder if there is a professional that they can trust who will take full responsibility for the entire project? Should you form a team? Which professionals do you need, and how do you select them?

These are all valid questions and concerns.

Deffenbaugh Homes has been building custom homes since 2000. Deffenbaugh Homes is honored to be ranked #1 on Houzz.com in and all of Sioux Falls.

Deffenbaugh Homes understands that you want your own special place that reflects your style and taste. Our collaborative process allows you to describe what you want, the design team draws it, you approve it, and Deffenbaugh Homes builds it, on time, and on budget.

Our Process

Getting to Know You

This step is where our in-house design/build team meets with you to discuss your needs, ideas, concerns, and priorities for the project. We want to get an in-depth look at you and your lifestyle. We will also discuss your budget to determine a scope that will work within your resources.


Our Process

Land Acquisition

We use our long-standing relationships with local real estate professionals to help you find the perfect lot and then be there to ensure the site is ideal for your needs. To confirm that your desired project is feasible we’ll do everything from bringing in soil and pool engineers and flying a drone to validate the views, to reviewing city restrictions, and much more.


Our Process

Home Design

As the top custom home builder in Sioux Falls, we also have the best in-house architectural design team. Our design/build team will create 3 conceptual 3D models that fit within all of your desired functions, design, and cost parameters. You can then mix and match specific variations from each to piece together your dream home.


Our Process

Specifications Development

It’s the details that separate extraordinary new home construction from ordinary new home construction. Your Project Estimator will catalog every component of the project specifications —plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, finish carpentry, paint colors, and more relating it back to an estimated cost for your project.

Our Process

The Build

One of the many advantages of working with a general contractor that has a large full-time staff is that it’s not just “one person trying to do everything.” Our Operations Manager will coordinate all of our subcontractors and Deffenbaugh staff; the Selections Coordinator will help guide you through all of your specifications selections and ordering process and our Customer Success Coordinator will be sure all of your questions are answered and guide you through the construction process.
