BUILD your

dream HOME

If you have the perfect piece of property, but the features of the existing home are not what you need, or there is simply no structure at all, Westwood Homes can make your dream home a reality. Even if you have not found the property of your dreams, we can help!


When it comes time to begin the home building process for your custom home in Portland, we trust that you will find our project management strategy exceptional. By designing a custom home, tailored to your requests, we can ensure your home is a place you’ll appreciate for years to come.




We have several preferred lenders that specialize in new home construction loans. View our Sample Estimate to give you an idea on budget and pricing. 

Couple and Architect


We will work with you and our plan designer to create the perfect home for your family. We have several homes we can build from our stock, but many times a home site has restrictions or challenges and a custom plan is needed to fit best on the lot.



Some jurisdictions have a very simple permitting process that a homeowner can apply for themselves with minimal assistance. For a more complicated permit process, we recommend hiring a permit specialist to obtain a permit in a timely manner. 

Construction Engineer


We build the home from breaking ground to handing you the final keys. Our designer will walk you thru each stage of construction and help you make the decisions that will work best for your family and budget. 

Worker with Glasses


Typically, our job starts when the site is ready for the digging of the foundation. The site development can range greatly, but may include clearing the lot or demo, running utilities to the lot, installing sidewalks, street improvements, removing trees or debris for building envelope of home and driveway. If your home site needs to be develop, that is not a problem. Westwood Homes can work with you to find the right site development contractor for your lot.

Business Handshake


We offer agent referrals for custom build clients at 2.5% of the contract price. ($2,500 at contract signing and remainder paid at the end of construction)*Subject to change without notice. See builder for details.

What an outstanding experience having Westwood Homes build our new custom home. 100% satisfaction from start to finish. They are AWESOME!

We interviewed 2 other builders and we immediately knew Westwood Homes would be the right choice. Every detail in the planning process was met with excitement for us and every detail was executed on time and within budget. Additionally, our home was finished ahead of schedule, which was a bonus for us.

Not only were the staff at Westwood full of creative ideas, they listened to our likes and ideas and offered valuable feedback on products and costs. This was very helpful as we are not as well-versed in the products that go into building a home as they are. Whether we called, emailed or just stopped into their office with questions, suggestions or change-ideas…they were always glad to see us!

We would highly recommend Westwood Homes to anyone wanting to build a custom home in the Portland area.
