Dave Chapin, owner of Contemporary Homes, and the team at Galena Builders, Dick Wienen and Tom Long, have developed some of the most spectacular residential projects in the Galena Territory, Apple Canyon Lake and the Tri-State area.

Expert, customer oriented construction management is the hallmark of our highly skilled and  professional team. Our ability to deliver outstanding projects and owner experience is evidenced not only by the projects but by our discriminating clients.

Building or remodeling a home should be an exciting and low stress experience.

Our team has always made that a priority. We take great care to ensure that everyone involved in our projects enjoys a working relationship that is positive and productive...starting with our clients and extending to our sub-contractors and suppliers.

Because we expect a great deal from our contractors and suppliers, we have chosen to work with only those who share our desire to deliver both exceptional quality and exceptional service. We focus on doing exceptional work from installing blackout blinds to renovating your ceiling, floor and walls.

Everyone on our team understands the need for constant communication, attention to detail and careful monitoring of the project budget...the goal is "no surprises". The result is that we are able to anticipate potential issues and resolve them before they become problems.

While we have always been very successful in winning competitive bids, many of our clients chose us not only because the bid was right but because they determined that we were a team that they could easily work with.

Due in large part to this commitment, The Brannigar Corporation, developer of The Galena Territory transferred their single family building division to Contemporary Homes in 1985.

We have also enjoyed a long term relationship with Straka-Johnson Architects, and Marty Johnson, the premier architectural firm in the Tri-State area. Together we have completed over 100 residential and light commercial projects.

Our team has been a part of most of the major projects at The Galena Territory and Apple Canyon Lake.
