The building process with Van Alan Homes has been remarkable. Alan and Jalyn were by our sides every step of the process in helping us build and design our DREAM home. We have heard horror stories of building a new home, so we were a bit nervous about the process, but after going through it with Van Alan homes, we can honestly say that the entire process was AMAZING! Their team was responsive, transparent and provide exceptional customer service throughout the process. We now can consider Alan and Jayln are now some of our dearest friends, who we will always be thankful for making our dream turn into a reality!Read More

Van Alan Homes built our new home in Lafayette. Although we have owned several homes over the past forty years, this was the only time that my wife and I have built a home. It was a long process, but much less stressful than we imagined. All of Van Alan's employees and most of the vendors and sub-contractors that Van Alan used were helpful, thorough, and did quality work. We are pleased that the home was completed under budget. We are thoroughly enjoying living in it.Read More

When my wife and I prepared to build a home, it didn’t take us long to realize that we had found the right people once we had met with Alan. We COULD NOT be more pleased with the outcome! The results are beyond our initial expectations! One of the most important things to me during the process was the fact if Alan (or his vendors) said that they would do something, it was done! The process was a pleasure and there is no doubt I would do it again with VAH!Read More

Van Alan Homes has built three (3) homes for me over the past 5 or 6 years. Needless to say, there's a reason I have continued choosing Van Alan Homes as my builder. Their level of professionalism, attention to detail and overall quality of work is what separates them from the list of other builders. My advise to anyone who is considering which builder/contractor to go with for their new construction project, is to not get zeroed in on the overall costs differences when comparing quotes/estimates. Remember, you get what you pay for. You won't regret selecting Van Alan Homes to build your home.Read More

I am a REALTOR so I see a lot of new construction and can honedtly say we love our home! The attention to detail was excellent. We definitely recommend Van Alan Homes to our friends.Read More
