Our founding story

In October 2017, the Tubbs Fire devastated Northern California and destroyed over 5,600 buildings, including the home of one of our cofounders. Like thousands of others, when he began the process of trying to rebuild, he was left feeling confused and hopeless.

A team of construction, real estate, and technology experts, we came together to create a better way to rebuild the community that many of us called home. In the process, we created a better solution for custom homebuilding anywhere.

Homebound is the first homebuilder to overhaul the building process and create a new experience that is designed entirely around the customer. We personally advocate for our homeowners at every step of the process, bringing together everything you’ll need to build under one roof and leveraging modern technology to make building a custom home dramatically simpler, more transparent, and human.

We’re here to get you home.
