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.

More about Commercial Construction
"I do recommend DeShano Companies for your home building project. I selected a “shell package” because I wanted to be more hands on in building our cottage. Jeff Zettel did an awesome job guiding me through the process. His expertise helped me with many of my decisions and believe me there are a lot of them. Scott Hillier did a great job managing all the trades on site. Everybody who walks through the door comments on the quality & craftsmanship they see in the home. Even though I decided on a shell package, I find myself going back for flooring and cupboards as I finish the interior. I dealt with 3 different companies (all great) and I chose DeShano because of their professionalism and pricing. No regrets!"

"As a general contractor ourselves we had high expectations from DeShano on our cabin renovation. The coordination of this project, workmanship and communication was great from office to our superintendent, Scott. Scott did an amazing job at keeping us informed of any issues or changes that needed to be made on our project. We love our newly renovated cabin!! Job well done.."

"Hired DeShano to construct a home for me in northern Michigan. I live in Dallas TX. They completed the job on time and everything was done how we wanted. It was difficult due the distance but DeShano was able to coordinate all aspects of this custom build."
