About Zawadski Homes

The Zawadski Homes team has been designing and building homes since 1969. Our projects range from extensive renovations to custom-built homes. From contemporary to traditional, whatever style you choose, the overall goal is to reflect the personality and lifestyle of the homeowner, which makes each of our custom-built homes truly unique.

Our core company belief is that personal attention and communication are the keys to a successful and positive building experience.  Our partnership and collaboration with the homeowner from the onset of each project creates a solid foundation that sets the stage for a smooth, efficient build.

Selecting a custom home builder is a very important decision and a critical first step in building the house of your dreams. By selecting us, you will get an experienced builder who is committed to understanding your priorities and bringing your vision to life.
