How many of you have ever thought about building a home, or purchasing a home so early in the building phase that you are able to pick your finishes – paint colors, carpeting, cabinets, and such? This is your week! Today I have Tom Ochs with Hoffman Ochs General Contractors, LLC as my Featured Business! Now, I will disclose that we purchased our most recent home from Tom and Hoffman Ochs – and we have been more than thrilled with our purchase. If you are looking for a quality new home builder in the Peoria, Illinois area (or anywhere along the I-74 corridor, see below for specific areas) you should definitely consider Hoffman Ochs. This is our third new construction home (yes, 3rd…2008, 2011, 2013…we might have a slight moving sickness) and by far one of the best experiences to date.
SN: What is the name of your company?
TO: Our company is Hoffman Ochs General Contractors, LLC.
SN: What is your position within the company?
TO: Tom Ochs and John Hoffman are managing partners. Tom oversees sales, planning and design, and estimating. John oversees the construction and service.
SN: What is your company’s specialty?
TO: We specialize in building value driven custom homes.
SN: Can you give us an example of how the process works?
TO: We help customers select and design a plan. We assist them in selecting specifications and building allowances for cabinets and floor covering that match their needs and taste. We provide them a guarantee price and time frame to complete the home.
Most of the people who contact have a rough idea of what they want, but most make some adjustments as they review plans and consider costs. The more effort put into the planning process the easier the building process becomes.
SN: Why do you love about doing what you do?
TO: When we come to understand what our customer envisions in their “mind’s eye” and produce it for them to live in and enjoy we feel we have accomplished something substantial and lasting.
SN: Tell us a little bit about you?
TO: We are a family business. The original partnership was between my father, Tom Ochs Sr. and John Hoffman. I became a partner in 1991. My dad has since retired but John’s son, Zak Hoffman, joined us in 2004 and became a partner last year.
SN: What locations does your company service?
TO: We build homes along I-74 from Peoria/Dunlap to Champaign/Urbana and all points in between. In the Peoria area we are currently building homes in Brimfield, Edwards, Dunlap, Peoria, Washington and Morton.
Thank You so much, Tom, for being a Featured Business this week on Sprinkled Nest!
Aren’t those photos amazing? Like I mentioned earlier, I am thrilled with my Hoffman Ochs house, and love every minute of personalizing it by Transforming it from House to Home.
