Meet the Team

Fall Creek Homes is a family owned new home builder in Fort Wayne, dedicated to delivering quality craftsmanship at affordable prices. We strategically focus on being a small home builder in order to keep our overhead low, passing on the value to our customers.

Our focus on remaining a small home builder also enables us to provide you with our "A" team on every home. You’re able to work directly with the builders on designing and building the home that is perfect for you. We strive to continually refine our building process, eliminating any inefficiencies and developing a better home for you.

We are proud to be a Certified Green Builder. Every Fall Creek Home is constructed with quality products, and you will find design elements and energy efficient features in our homes that other builders consider options (and will charge you extra for) or may not even offer.

We look forward to guiding you through this exciting process of building a custom new home that you and your family will love. Contact our office today to get started.
