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
Model 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.

"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."

"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."

"A large, well staffed company that helped us make the selections and modifications resulting in what we consider is our perfect retirement home. Their large showroom lets you see the materials you are selecting. Their use of the internet and computerized kitchen design made it possible to finalize the design from across the state and complete the project to meet our moving schedule. They were very flexible in crediting things like closet shelving which we chose to do ourselves. They are up to date on building codes and produced a very energy efficient building. Their follow up team is very capable to fix the defects that are discovered after moving in."
