We found Jesse’s development, a gem called The Crown at Arbor’s Edge. We fell in love with a Big Sioux River lot which Jesse helped us pick out. The Deffenbaugh company and 4-D Design took it all to the next level. We feel they are the Number One builders in this area. The building process was outstanding. We are so grateful!

Susan Anderson

We met with several contractors and solicited many recommendations before selecting a builder for our new home. From the very first meeting, it was apparent that Deffenbaugh Homes was in a class of their own. The Deffenbaugh team has a very rare combination of creativity and a structured organizational process that sets them apart from the rest. I couldn’t imagine building with anyone else.

John Sievers

We had a great experience working with Deffenbaugh and Lauren from 4D! Jesse is very creative and hard-working. The entire team is great! We would use them again in the future for any renovation needs.

Laura Jacobson

The crew was always pleasant, great personalities, and enjoyed having them do our home remodeling projects. We would definitely recommend the team at Deffenbaugh Homes if you are looking to build or remodel.

Joyce Dabbert

From start to finish, the Deffenbaugh team provided quality workmanship in every aspect of our remodel project. The quote was spot on, the craftsmanship of each step of the project was excellent, and we were very pleased with the end result. We would highly recommend the Deffenbaugh team.

Second time I have contracted Deffenbaugh Homes to enhance our current home. One thing I love about this company is the budget closely matches the final invoice. They are also very flexible to add items as we see the need while they are on our property. The other piece and most important to us is that they follow up on any item that needs to be addressed. I NEVER get the run around that they are too busy to address anything that need to be fixed. Most reliable company we have contract with in the area!

Tim Hart

Deffenbaugh Homes transformed our home into something to love and be proud of. I’ve never felt more like we are officially in our forever home than after their work. The attention to detail was next to none. The responsiveness was beyond impressive. I’ve already referred new clients and would do it again in a heartbeat.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Deffenbaugh for the construction of my home, and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with their exceptional service and craftsmanship. The quality of the work delivered was outstanding. The team at Deffenbaugh kept me informed at every stage, promptly addressing any concerns or queries I had. They were always approachable, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure my satisfaction.
