Homes By Brian - Builder of Prestigious Homes in Northwest Indiana
guess you can say, home building is in my blood. My father worked
in the construction trades for over 47 years. He owned a well
respected and prominent custom home business known as Lantz Builders
for over 30 years. During that time, he owned the best reputation
in the area. I was only ten years old when I started working
for him on weekends and holidays. I knew at that early age that
the construction field was my destiny.
I continued to work for him building custom homes through my
teenage years and even designed several homes by the age of
17. I learned at an early age the importance of quality and
high standards. I knew someday that I wanted to carry that outstanding
reputation that he had worked so hard to achieve. For the next
five years, I continued to work for my dad while attending Purdue
In 1985, I graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelors
Degree in Civil Engineering Technology and an Associates Degree
in Construction Engineering Technology. I also obtained an extensive
background in Architectural Drafting and Design along with Subdivision
Planning and Engineering.
I continued to work in the family business for two more years
and in 1987, at the age of 22, I left to create my own company
called Homes by Brian. Over the next 30+ years, I have had the
pleasure of building many beautiful custom homes while meeting
many interesting people. Throughout the years, I continue to
live in the same subdivisions with over thirty different customers
that I have built for. I have had many repeat customers including
one pair of family members that I have built four separate homes
for. We're now building for 2nd generation customers.
Today, I continue to enjoy building custom homes and I treat
every home as if it were my own. I make it a point to establish
a relationship between builder and customer that helps the customer
feel comfortable during construction. Nothing is more important
then being able to get your questions answered and deal directly
with the builder you are entrusting to bring your home to life.
To me, its always been more than just building your home, its
about building your trust too.
