Worked with Josh and the Buffum team for a new home build. It was a great experience. Josh was helpful, thoughtful, and knowledgeable on items we didn't know about. The team executed well and was very responsive.

We love our home and could not have asked anybody else to design and create an affordable home. They came up with the ideal house plan for our family, and we thank God for Buffum Builders. They built us the best lasting home that we could stay in for many years to come.

Buffum Homes built a beautiful home for my family in 2003 in Byron Center. It was a Parade Home that deservedly won awards for the design and workmanship. The project was managed by a very skilled and caring project manager, and we were very pleased with the end product! They coordinated many things, including making sure the property was laid out properly for a new swimming pool. I can say from experience that Buffum Homes builds a beautiful and design-friendly home and truly cares about their customers! I have since lived in four other Buffum Homes, and the quality was matched in all of them! Norm, Josh Buffum, and the whole team of professionals at Buffum Homes are a wonderful group of caring people. I know the construction business can be very challenging, but they did a terrific job in bringing the projects/houses together for our family. I would highly recommend Buffum Homes for any new home project! Pick Buffum Homes for your next custom home building or just buying, and you will be glad you did!

We just finished building a home with Buffum Homes. We had a FANTASTIC experience. I can't say enough good things about Josh Buffum and Bob Frye! Unlike other builders that we've dealt with (with their cookie cutter homes and pre-determined "options") Buffum was willing to work with us every step of the way. No matter what we asked, the answer was never "no". They were willing to provide us with exactly what we wanted and they were very fair with costs. We were kept informed throughout the build process. Buffum was able to build the home of our dreams AND stay within our budget. What a great team!

The Buffum 'family' built my dream home. From design to project completion, they were totally professional but always gave helpful and unbiased advice to help me choose the right options for me. I would use them again!

Norm, Josh, and the Buffum Homes crew really bring dreams to life. Step by step, from the design process to the final coat of paint, my custom dream home became a reality. I can’t express how pleased I am with every nook and cranny. I highly recommend Norm Buffum and Buffum Homes to build your dream house, cottage, remodel—you name it; they are the real deal! The attention to every little detail is just above and beyond! They truly make you feel like family! Grateful doesn’t come close!
