Trustworthy Builders, Quality Homes

With over 25 years of experience in new home construction, Buffum Homes has become one of the best value and quality driven builders in Grand Rapids. Our customers may choose from a variety of our award-winning floor plans, or a new plan can be drawn to be completely customized to meet your needs. Homes can be built on our lots, in one of our communities, or on one you choose or own. We offer a no-hassle construction financing option as well, so that you don’t have to worry about a construction loan. We’ve been known for designing and constructing homes that are a higher caliber than the price tag, thanks to our low overhead and faithful suppliers. Attention to detail and our incorporation of craftsmanship throughout is something we put a high level of importance on. We make sure to take care of our home owners, as we value them not only as our customers, but as family. From starting the planning phase to move-in, our staff will be alongside you every step of the way. We have served families throughout West Michigan for over 25 years, and will enjoy doing so for years to come.

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!

As an independent energy inspector I'm impressed with the attention to detail paid in every facet of construction; from air sealing to insulation installation quality. These folks care about the things that consumers typically cannot see.
