Why use Midwest Sustainable Homes?

Our belief in Honesty, Transparency, and Thoroughness.

Raised on rural southern Iowa values, I still call the small community of Murray, Iowa, my home. After almost 20 years I decided it was time to leave one of the largest Architecture Firms in the U.S, working with the majority of the top 25 home builders across the country, to work where my true passion is-designing and building homes for the people and small towns that oftentimes get overlooked. Here at Midwest Sustainable we are rural and we believe in the rural way of life. My passion is to provide a solution to towns all across the country that are in desperate need of cost-effective, safe, energy efficient housing, and put hard working people in a home they can afford, providing our customers what they expect and deserve in an honest, upfront manner.

Raised in rural southern Iowa. My family has been involved in the construction business for over 50 years. We have built a family of businesses around the same, proven method- good old fashioned customer service. Our goal is to provide our customers what they expect and deserve in an honest, upfront manner. Serving rural and small town America is my passion and where I feel at home. We recognize that rural America is, oftentimes, underserved and that is why we are so excited to bring such a comprehensive approach to the construction industry in the heart of America.

Born and raised in Leon, IA. Growing up in the construction business has given me the opportunity to be involved in multiple aspects of construction. The part of construction that I specialize in is keeping the project moving and reaching the customers timeline goals. In all construction projects there are multiple barriers to completing the process. Our goal is to shorten or eliminate as many of those barriers as possible by helping the customer throughout the building process. I also keep the project moving by managing the multiple tradesman involved. Honesty, Integrity and Transparency are three values we live by and our promise to the customer is to make building an enjoyable experience.
