Why DeShano Companies, Inc?
Waterfront Living
Considering a waterfront build? DeShano Companies has extensive experience in building water facing homes. We will help you design the perfect house to take advantage of your lot's unique views and elevation. Since most waterfront homes have two fronts, it is important to design the house to have appeal from both sides. Our drafting and design team will take each of these factors into consideration to help design your perfect home, cottage, or cabin.
Waterfront Friendly Home Plans
Models Homes and Lots
DeShano Companies, Inc. has model homes and building lots available in many different communities around central and northern Michigan. Model homes are move-in ready so you don't have to wait for the construction process. Some are built as shells, meaning you get to pick out your own floor covering, paint colors, cabinets, counter tops, and hardware. We also maintain a variety of building lots with features such as golf, water, and woods.

"Interviewed several contractors and chose DeShano on their honesty, reputation, and performance. Every contact at DESHANO was responsive and thorough. They contracted the building of our home, pond, large equipment pole barn, and livestock pole barn. I highly recommend them. They were helpful, professional, and on schedule. I didn't waste time worrying or questioning our projects with DeSHANO in charge."

"We could not be more pleased from the start of build for our new home to the final finish. DeShano Companies and their contractors were extremely professional and helpful during this entire process. It was a wonderful feeling knowing who was working at our house since most of the people who work for DeShano Companies are from our area. Our home has turned out so much more beautiful than we thought it would. We both know that we will use DeShano Companies again with any future projects."

"We love our new log house up north, and the complete experience of building this home with DeShano Companies was terrific. Jeff was extremely knowledgeable in helping with all the details of the plan, and Scott as foreman was great to work with. The quality for the price was outstanding and I would recommend this builder to anyone considering building a home in central and northern lower Michigan."
