We had lots of updating we wanted to do. Builders was there with any design ideas we needed and provided us with the perfect pricing for our limited budget on a remodel. We wanted lighting, counter tops, sinks, faucets, flooring, and paint! They helped us find just the right products in our modern color schemes and style. Thanks to Builders we were able to renovate our first home with the right look and price!

-DIY Customer, Steven

Builders Design Center is absolutely out of this world fantastic!!! The personal attention, the quality of the products they offer, the competitive prices and the amazing show room with hundreds of inspiring ideas all make Builders the absolute best design center in central Nebraska. The entire staff is professional, well-trained, and highly skilled at what they do. They really listen to the customer to offer personalized ideas and suggestions that fit the project, the budget and the style preference. From the moment we stepped into the Design Center show room until our project was completed, Builders Design Center staff provided quick, accurate, precise, detailed, skilled, and personal service. They offer beautiful, amazing, quality products. We were beyond pleased that we had the privilege of working with this highly qualified, incredibly professional and gifted group of designers! Two thumbs way up!!!!!

-Remodel Customer, Polly

I built my custom home and used Builders for the lumber, windows, exterior products, flooring and tile in my house. They were great to work with and provided me with fair pricing. The contractor sales department was extremely helpful, and resolved the few issues that come up in a prompt manner. I highly recommend this company for any project, big or small.

-Contractor, Brian

I worked with Robin to design a kitchen before I finished up the house plans with the draftsman. The kitchen was the most important room to me and she understood that it was important to me to start here. I know usually she starts with standard measurements from a house plan, but this time we worked together to create the measurements to put into the plan! Great experience!

-New Home Customer for Estimate, Tasha

Building our 3rd home and my husband being a contractor for custom homes we are frequent customers of Builders and use the talent of the Builder's Design Team to our advantage. The girls there can bring any dream and idea into a reality that exceeds all expectations. We built our final home and I wanted it perfect. This wasn't an issue because they wanted it to be as perfect as I did. They worked one on one with me, listening to all my thoughts, ideas and wants. They in turn made something I could only imagine into something even bigger and better. When guests walk into our house they first thing they comment on is the WOW factor of our kitchen. It's open and functional but it's unbelievably elegant. The kitchen is where we spend time with friends and family and gather, hang out and make memories. The Design Team exceeded my expectations when it came to putting my home and kitchen from a blueprint to an actual living space. I would recommend the Design Team to anyone from anything as small as a laundry room remodel to an entire dream house. These girls are the best of the best and perfected my ideas into my dream home and kitchen. Thanks Builders Design Team!

-New Home Customer, Stephanie

The entire staff at Builders was amazing to work with during our process of changing our laminate kitchen countertop to granite. Everyone was timely, professional and genuinely cared about us being satisfied with the end product. From the staff that helped us pick out our granite to the installers, everyone was a class act! I would and do highly recommend Builders to my friends, family and coworkers!

-Kitchen Remodel Customer, Paige

I have done hundreds of projects and use Builders for most of my materials. Very helpful and polite employees.

-Professional Contractor, Mike

Gwen was excellent and very professional in designing a kitchen specific to our lifestyle and personal taste. The cabinets are of high-quality workmanship and the finish is exquisite. Ordering was simple and our cabinets arrived right on time. Builders are very professional and would highly recommend them for all your building needs.

-Diane W.

From start to finish, Builders guided me through products and design ideas leading me to my dream kitchen! Thanks, Gwen, you are excellent at what you do.

Since then, we have expanded their reach into 5 states and have upgraded the facility to a state-of-the-art plant that offers engineered roof and floor trusses and wall panels.
