About us

We're here for you.

Our Values

Consistent Quality

Quality is important, and it is integral to all we do. It’s not selective, but universal, no matter what the value.

Fanatical Attention to Detail

We pursue the little things, and the big, making sure that extra layer is in play, from design, to paperwork, to final execution.

Straightforward Integrity

We stand tall, and do what is right. We believe trust is earned, and we make a point of earning it.

Valued Relationships

We find value in the people we align ourselves with, and we become a part of the lives of those that choose to work with us. You’re important to us no matter how we may be aligned.

We celebrate every aspect of the hard work that each and all put into the planning and design stage of our home!

Dream Teams = Dream Makers = Troxel Custom Homes


Since we lived 150 miles away from the area where our new home was to be built, it was important that we went with a builder who not only does quality work but also has integrity, conscientiousness, attention to detail, and is trustworthy. In Troxel Custom Homes we found all those qualities.

Glynis & Ken

Troxel Custom Homes provided us with both services and product that exceeded our expectations. From the first meeting when they asked questions and patiently listened to us for nearly three hours, to the homeowner training, Troxel Custom  Homes focused on delivering a custom home for us.

Our Story

Troxel Custom Homes has been in operation in Holland Michigan for over 20 years. The business was started by Brian Troxel, a third generation home builder, and his wife Kris in the mid 90’s after moving to the area from Florida. Brian quickly built a reputation for his consistent quality and attention to detail.

In 2005 Drew DeMeester joined Troxel Custom Homes. Drew came with experience in business management, construction management, estimating, purchasing, and architectural design. In 2015, Brian and Drew began exploring the process of transitioning the business from being owned by Brian to being owned by Drew. That process resulted in the formal transition of the company ownership to Drew in 2017. Although Brian and Kris have formally retired now, they’re still close friends and mentors to Drew as he continues to move forward maintaining the longstanding company values of quality, attention to detail, integrity, and relationships.

Troxel Custom Homes specializes in building quality homes and paying attention to all the details to make sure it is done right. With longstanding relationships with trade contractors and vendors, many of whom go back to the 90’s, Troxel Custom Homes is able to consistently build distinctive award winning homes with quality at their core. Troxel Custom Homes is proud to have been part of so many homes in the West Michigan area, and values each relationship that they build with their clients, and looks forward to continuing to be a leader in the residential construction industry in West Michigan for many years to come.

We're based in Holland, Michigan. We pride ourselves as West Michigan's premier custom home builders. Let Troxel Custom Homes build your dreams.
