In a world of venture capitalists and fast paced business growth, there’s something very special about a family operated business, especially one that has blossomed with their original founding principles. Larry Good Homes is such a company and was built on a foundation meant to last. Brian Good is a third-generation owner and is now company President. Over the years, Brian has worked alongside his father and carried on his process and traditions, including vendor and subcontractor partnerships. Beaming with pride, Good explained, “At an initial client meeting, I always let the client know my father left me with an incredible ‘blueprint’ for the business and I, to this day, follow his ways!”

Larry Good Homes will complete custom homes on farms, scatter lots, and in approved custom neighborhoods throughout the central Indiana area. “We can work with floor plans a client brings to the table or have our team of draftsmen create one-of-a-kind custom floor plans. The client is our highest priority and we make sure our team and subcontractors deliver the very best service,” explained Good. Edits and adjustments to each plan are carefully considered by the Good team of draftsmen, ultimately giving each client their individual vision for their homes.

Not only does the in-house team at Larry Good Homes give undivided attention to their clients, the same goes for their industry partners. For over 20 years, Larry Good Homes has trusted and contracted McComb Pella Window and Door for nearly all their window and door needs. “Not only do they have great products, their customer service is even better. They are wonderful people to work with,” said Good.

How does McComb Pella mold with the Larry Good Homes building process? Greg Hintz from McComb Pella Window and Door meets with each client to help them design and make those important exterior and interior selections.

“It makes the process seamless for our team, but our client also gets undivided attention, service, and no detail is spared with Greg. It truly makes our lives so much easier,” explained Good.

Window style and color preference will vary with each new build and client, but as Good shared, “We have seen many earthy tones in clad windows, such as almond, but black has become a top choice lately! It’s so thrilling seeing each home come to fruition as the client had imagined. A major sense of pride is involved for all parties when the homeowners can move into their new home and enjoy it for many years to come!”

As a premier custom builder, Larry Good Homes has stuck to the client-focused process Brian’s father and grandfather originally created. They build quality homes which are one-of-a-kind, and suited to each family who calls it home.
