Josh Thomas, works throughout the construction project in support of Chris. He has been working with Heinz Built Homes, LLC, since 2011, and has been best friends with Chris since their Middle School years. He cares about what we are doing. After college and time as a firefighter with BLM in Idaho, Josh started working with our team full time. Josh is also very talented at finish work, painting and tile and day to day management of your project. What makes, Heinz Built Homes, LLC unique compared to some other builders is that Josh then takes over the completion of all punch list items and service work through total completion. Chris then becomes, Josh's support at that point. Josh is already fully aware of how to get those final details taken care of that some other builders never seem to complete. There are only three points of contact with Heinz Built Homes, LLC with Chris and Josh on site and Mike acting as project support from the office.

The Heinz family started building in Idaho in 1996 after designing and building in Washington and Arizona since 1975. The plan was not to move here and start building, but the family really liked the Boise area and knew this was the best place to raise the family and decided to make Idaho home. We started out building strictly pre sold custom homes by referrals through friends that knew us and have stayed the course since then here locally. Almost all of Heinz Built Homes business has come from referrals from previous clients and that is something we are very proud of and plan on continuing with Heinz Built Homes LLC.

We have built custom homes in all price categories from small entry level homes for first time buyers or empty nesters, to large estates in the greater Treasure Valley area in the State of Idaho. It does not matter if it is a standard building lot that is ready to build on or an acreage piece that needs to be developed with access roads and power, water, septic, etc., we can handle the project. We have built hundreds of homes in the states of Idaho, Washington and Arizona. Mike, while building as Heinz Development, Inc., has also built many small commercial projects such as the 20,000 square foot Coltrin Central Plaza and Santara Place Condominiums in Boise.
