From helping you choose the right neighborhood and home site to collaborating with you on a custom floor plan, Teal Creek walks you through every step. With our input we design and develop a stylish and unique floor plan that includes your desired amenities and features.
We begin with a consultation where you share your custom home vision. Whether starting with a model floor plan or starting from scratch, we develop a unique floor plan that aligns with your vision. Together we review the completed plan before ever breaking ground. We outline milestones, work together to choose custom cabinetry, flooring, roofing, stone, door styles, appliances, and more… making your home truly one-of-a-kind.
We understand that home building can be stressful. But we firmly believe that with the right building partner the process can be enjoyable and manageable. Teal Creek homes takes an otherwise daunting experience and makes it a fun and exciting ride.

WHY WE GOT STARTED…
Jim Young, the founder of Teal Creek Homes, received his Engineering degree from Iowa State University and spent much of his early career working for some of the country’s largest General Contractors on multi-million dollar projects, many of which you probably see and use every day in the Des Moines area. The experience gained and in depth knowledge of construction details, structural analysis, and mechanical and electrical systems is carried over to our homes, which give it unparalleled quality and lifetime durability.
Another core value of Teal Creek Homes which is a takeaway from the commercial construction industry is developing relationships. When we build a home, we don’t view the client as “one and done” but rather approach every build as if we are building for friends or family. We don’t advertise, we rely solely on word of mouth from our clients’ good experiences, so you know we go the extra mile everyday!
We’d love to get to know you and build your next home, so give us a call today and make your dream home a reality.
Jim Young – President
Jim has been in the construction field his entire life. He started out working for the family owned small town lumber yard during high school. He then went on to get his Bachelors degree from Iowa State in Engineering which led to working for some of the country’s largest General Contractors and placing over well over $100M in construction work.
