At Norman Dreams are meant to be realized

At Norman Building and Design We Believe Dreams are meant to be realized!

In the highly competitive home building business, long-term success depends upon exceeding client’s expectations - even when those expectations mean exceeding their dreams! Whether the dream was a simple remodel of an existing home or a “sky’s-the-limit” showcase dream home from concept to construction. Our team is dedicated to bringing your dream home to life.

John and I have been meaning to thank you so much for designing our home. We absolutely love it!  Every day we notice a special “Norman” touch that exemplifies how extraordinary your gift of design is:  how the windows are positioned to allow the light to pass through; the timeless exterior; and the positioning of the house to take full advantage of the amazing views from every room. We owe you and the entire staff at NB&D a huge heartfelt thank you.”

“Our original intention was to buy an existing home in Bend, but after nine months of searching, we could not find the right one. One thing we noticed after touring nearly 100 Central Oregon homes was the exceptional design and craftsmanship of every Norman home. When we finally considered the possibility of building our home, our first and only phone call was to Norman. Initially, we were intimidated by the countless decisions that had to be made when designing and building a home. But your team made it easy and fun for us. A year ago, Greg told us we would become part of the Norman family. Now we know what he means.”

– Jeff & Susie Webber

“We just moved into our new Norman built home and could not be happier! The entire process from design to the finished product was a total pleasure. The entire staff is so professional, talented and supportive. Every person who saw our home during any stage of construction was completely impressed by the quality of the materials being used and the quality of the construction. While we view this home as our last, we would definitely build with the Norman team if we ever planned another home.”

– Gail & Stan Fridstein

"We first met the Norman team while considering a move to Central Oregon a few years ago. After becoming interested in a lot for sale near Sisters that had a beautiful view of the Cascades and Whychus Creek, our realtor introduced us to Greg Garrick with NBD.

Greg immediately took us to see Norman's entry on the 2015 Tour of Homes and we loved everything about it. He also showed us several homes they had previously finished. What really stood out to us was that the homes looked brand new inside and out even 10+ years later. We also spoke to former Norman clients, all of whom said it was a dream to work with them, which led us to the decision to sign up.
Along the way, all the subcontractors said that Norman Design was by far the best they work for. The site was kept clean, there was always someone in charge, and the job progressed every single day during the week, sometimes even on weekends.

It was fun to work with Norman! Our home is so solid and very beautiful. Something else that stood out is how much they all care about what they do. We never had to worry about anything. It was such a wonderful experience!"

“I am compelled to add my voice to the chorus of accolades that your fine company has received over the years for your exemplary service. I am the second owner of a home that you built 16 years ago and your staff is as attentive to my inquiries and requests as if you had just handed me the keys. Troy [Brown] is the perfect person to handle your ongoing matters with your existing homeowners. I cannot say enough good things about how rapid his responses are, how pleasant and helpful he is, and how constructive and creative he is in his helpfulness. He is a marvelous ambassador for your company.”

– Bob Richards

The only thing more fun than the building our home [with Norman] is actually living in it. The process was so enjoyable, we would turn around and do it again, except for the fact that we wouldn’t want to leave our new home. We truly got quality and value, without stress. Thanks to all of you for making our dream home a reality.”

– Mike & Shayla Herzog

“We hope you will put us in your books as another of your very happy clients. We have nothing but good things to say about working with you and your group. The process of building was easy and we are thrilled with the final result.”

You have a great staff, full of energy and creativity.”

–      Mac & Patti Douglas

“We are grateful for your work and appreciate each person in your company. We sincerely thank everyone as we feel you are outstanding.”

– Dierk & Cecile Peters

“The entire team at Norman made the experience of having our home designed and built while we lived 1,600 miles away exciting and stress free. From the time we met face to face with the design, construction and interior design teams, until the completion of our home, each team member listened to our needs, preferences and desires and responded with a home beyond our expectations. Our communication with the Norman team was exceptional and as frequent as necessary to accomplish the various phases of design and construction, including detailed drawings, computer renderings, biweekly photos of the progress and video conferences covering major decision points on our project timeline. Their attention to every detail did not detract from delivering the big picture of the finished product. I would highly recommend Norman Building & Design for a home of your dreams.”

– Cindi & Ted Gilmore
