About Troxel Custom Homes





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


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


We stand tall and always do what is right for our clients. We believe trust is earned and we make a point of earning it.


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.



Troxel Custom Homes is not the biggest builder in West Michigan, but we do strive to be the best. We intentionally stay small enough that we can give all of our projects our full attention, yet large enough that we can work efficiently with proven processes and dedicated trades.

We have been in operation in Holland Michigan for over 25 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 is a proud to be partnered with 20 of the nation’s finest builders through the National Association of Home Builder’s Builder 20 Clubs. This is an industry club that meets on an ongoing basis for advice via roundtable discussions, educational sessions, and business evaluations. One of the most significant benefits of membership is the role it provides for us as a Board of Directors. They critique, analyze, and consult on all aspects of our building business – and they ensure that we stay on top of the latest trends and help focus us toward continually improving our company.

We specialize in building quality homes and exceptional renovations by 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.

As a kid, I was fascinated by home design and how those designs became reality. In the late 1970’s I was given my grandfather’s drafting tools so I could begin to draw my own plans – many hours were spent … read more.

Brian and Kris Troxel


The Troxels spent their entire careers doing something that they really enjoy: building custom homes for great customers and friends. They’re now enjoying retirement, but you may see them around the office from time to time!



"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."

Glynis & Ken

"The staff were incredible during the entire building process from design to delivery. Every step of the process was enjoyable and hassle-free thanks to the fine crew of contractors, designers and suppliers who assisted along the way. We give Troxel Custom Homes an A+ for quality and customer satisfaction!" 

Dan & Dianna

"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."
