Noyes Quality Homes PC Chamber’s February Spotlight
Noyes Quality Homes had the honor of being featured as the Chamber Spotlight Business of the Month for February.
Owners Jason and Ashleigh Noyes were present at the monthly chamber meeting held Thursday, Feb. 15 to share details about their business.
Jason and Ashleigh purchased the former Mastre Homes building on Highway 23 in January 2017 to utilize as a central office location for their multiple businesses.
Prior to their purchase of the property, the couple had been hired as contractors to finish a home that was in the Mastre shop. While working on the completion of that home, the couple was able to purchase the entire property.
“Since we already had the construction side of things growing, we figured if a house came along, that would be fantastic to keep the house building aspect still rolling,” said Ashleigh.
The couple has now finished two additional builds from start to finish under the Noyes Quality Homes name.
“It’s exciting as a business owner when you bring a family with kids to this school and community,” said Jason.
The couple hopes to market as more of a custom builder in the future that builds homes based on customers’ budgets and needs. Noyes Quality Homes strives to provide quality craftsmanship in a custom home at an affordable price.
“We pride ourselves on building high quality, sound structure, by the book builds. We don’t cut corners,” said Ashleigh.
“We want people to think about living there forever,” Jason further explained.
Although they are building modular homes by Nebraska state standards, the homes are one-piece, stick-built homes as if already on a foundation and then moved. They shouldn’t be confused with trailer homes or cheaply-made products.
“We want to build homes that our kids or someone local could buy some day and it will continue to stand strong 50 years from now. But your product has to be good from the original build,” he said.
Jason also discussed how they support local businesses with their builds. They have found without the costs of shipping, shopping local has actually saved their customers money in the end.
According to the couple, in addition to building homes, they are building friendships, and have therefore had a lot of fun adding the business to their portfolio.
They have enjoyed watching the houses being built step-by-step and walking their customers through each and every step as they watch the nails and boards turn into the home where they will watch their family grow.
“It’s a very cool and exciting thing and we are thrilled that we get to be a part of that experience,” Ashleigh said.
Noyes Quality Homes has eight employees including Ashleigh and Jason.
If they continue to lock in contracts and continue building, the couple hopes to increase their staff and be able to possibly have a spec home or two for people to view and/or purchase right off the lot.
“In fact our next contract will be our next hired hand,” Jason said. “Because we can see the future.”
For now, Ashleigh and Jason are taking it one build at a time and hoping the future is prosperous and they can help keep their hometown on the map.
“I mean, come on, who doesn’t love this place?!” Ashleigh asked.
Noyes Quality Homes is located at 61 S. Central Ave., in Grant and can be reached at 308-352-2660.
