our story

experience speaks VOLUMES

Great people make great teams.  We bring together a diverse and talented group of people to assist in the design, building and purchasing process.  We don't operate like most.  Some homebuilders want to be the biggest, or to build the most homes the fastest, that's not us.  We take our time and stand behind our work, offering a promise of craftsmenship, dedication and durability.  Our hands-on approach, attention to detail and commitment to service sets us apart from the rest.  

Our principles are built on a solid foundation of longtime friendships, local involvement and giving back.  We are a company with a heart.  We don't just built homes; we build relationships and believe in investing in Des Moines, the surrounding communities and the businesses and people who support them.


We're here to help

We understand building a home is a personal investment and an exciting step for many.  Choosing the right homesite, plan and adding personal touches is all part of the process.  We're here to help and answer any questions you may have.  Being involved in the process is important to us, that's why we do what we do.



We only work with the best materials and vendors available.  We give our clients realistic schedules that accommodate their lives. We strive for honest customer service and ensure your complete satisfaction when building and after the sale.  We offer a 1 year builder guarantee and never compromise quality for time.  We invite you see first-hand the elevated difference.

We approached Elevated Builders with a general idea of our project. With their guidance, we narrowed in on our wants and the team was able to give us several layouts. They were timely, professional, answered all our questions and gave us very helpful advice and we are very happy with the results.

design focused

Our attention to detail and design is what sets us apart.  This passion and dedication comes from our in-house and certified designer who is on-site and involved throughout the design and build process. From granite and hardwood to lighting fixtures and door hardware, know that every option has been vetted to create a well coordinated and timeless selection.  Great design doesn't need to be expensive, our services are standard in each home, and we will work with our vendors to guarantee we stay on budget.  You don't have to do this alone, we'll guide you through every step of the design process to ensure a home that exceeds your expectations.

We don't build to trends, we help define them.

Sustainable Footprint

Many of our homeowners choose to live in an Elevated Home because of our commitment to sustainability and innovation.  In response, we work hard to incorporate methods of reducing our waste producing products when building and your consumption upon move-in.  Members of our team are LEED certified and constantly evaluate and implement ways to reduce our environmental impact which include construction waste recycling, LED lighting, ENERGY STAR appliances, water-conserving fixtures, proper insulation, all saving you money in the long run.
