Great homes built by great people
Building a Conner home requires a dedicated team of professionals. Together, we have created an impressive portfolio of nearly 6,000 homes throughout the Pacific Northwest. Each and every home we build has the same attention to detail: extensive pre-planning, market research, meticulous field supervision, careful cost control and superior after-sale customer care.
