You’re ready to build your dream home. You’ve found the perfect town, the perfect setting, and your head is full of ideas. You’ve trolled Architectural Digest and Houzz for inspiration. Now you need a builder to make this dream a reality. Not just any builder—the right builder.

We believe that choosing the right builder starts with understanding what you have in common, what you both value, how you both communicate, how expectations are framed and interpreted. Your builder will be your closest friend and ally for nearly a year, and hopefully your friendship will remain long after the last detail is finished on your new home. To that end, we’d like to tell you a bit about what defines Bane Built, what we value, and how we work. This is what you can expect:
Bane Built values.
Authenticity, integrity, and master craftsmanship—every day, every task.
Direct contact with your builder.

You work directly with Zach, the owner, not a project manager. Zach responds promptly to texts and calls, and has first-hand knowledge of the particulars of your project. Whether large or not-so-large, your project will be managed with the same attention to detail.

Every house, every day.
Bane Built provides daily site management in person. Our philosophy is “Every house, every day.” Zach has intentionally chosen not to expand operations beyond what he can personally oversee, because he cares as much about quality workmanship and quality of life as you do. Since we accept a very limited number of home builds per year and use staggered starts, Bane Built is able to provide daily, on-site builder management of your project.
Top notch natural materials.
Zach builds with unique natural materials for custom components such as mantles, bar tops, timbers, log or rock accents. Many are hand-picked by Zach and Katie from the Idaho/Montana high country.
Custom components made to your specs.
Bane Built provides functional  and creative custom features made to your specifications—if you can dream it, Zach can build it. He is known for coming up with one-of-a-kind solutions to design challenges. Homes come in all sizes and budgets; whether your budget is roomy or tight, Zach will help you come up with beautiful ways to make your home a unique showpiece.
Flexibility and creativity.
We will work with you to develop a custom home design that is perfect for your site; in addition we can work with your blueprints (and we’ve been known to follow napkin sketches), providing advice and guidance on custom modifications and creative use of space and natural materials.
Dependability, accuracy, accountability.

It is our highest goal to provide accurate due dates, schedules, updates on site progress, complete bids and realistic budgets. We strive to communicate clearly, be on time, and on budget. We’ll tell you the truth so that together we can make the best decisions for your project, and we’ll always work with your best interest in the forefront.

The best subcontractors in the area.
We have developed a crew of loyal subcontractors—many of whom work exclusively for Bane Built—who are master craftsmen in their own right. Our subcontractors take pride in meeting Zach’s high standards of excellence. They show up on time, clean up, give straight answers, do outstanding work, and smile.
Our goal is to create a product that meets our expectations and exceeds yours! If our way of working sounds like your way of working, we’d love to meet and discuss your ideas.

We'd love to talk about your project.
