Nikki Pechet
Cofounder, CEO

After the 2017 wildfires in Napa, Nikki watched as the community around her home set out to rebuild, and knew there had to be a better way. With a background in technology, construction and real estate, she teamed up with other experts in the area to found Homebound, with a focus on making the process of building a custom home simple, transparent, and human.

A serial remodeler and DIY aficionado, Nikki has been managing her own construction projects for a decade. Nikki started her career in real estate in New York City, spent almost a decade at Bain & Company leading innovation strategy across industries, and then returned to the building world to help make it easier to get home projects done as an early executive at Thumbtack, the fastest-growing online home services marketplace, now valued at over $1B.

Our 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.
