No two clients are the same, therefore, no two homes should be the same. At Design Build Concepts, (DBC), it's our belief that we can build you a truly custom home, rich with character, to fit your individual family needs and lifestyle - on time and on budget.

As a design/build company in Grand Rapids, Michigan, we have been designing house plans and building in the Greater Grand Rapids and West Michigan area for over 25 years. We personally oversee and participate in every aspect of your home. From the initial home design, to building and completion, we want to ensure your total vision is realized. We believe having a design/build team ensures that all the unique details you express and desire during the design process are followed through during the construction of your home.
