Land Development & Building is a privately held small business focused on creating unique, sustainably-built homes within vibrant, cohesive communities. We design our homes and Pocket Neighborhoods to emphasize front porch living, connecting homeowners more directly to their environment and to one another.
We offer numerous Ross Chapin architectural smart-sized floor plans designed specifically for our Pocket Neighborhoods—the first of their kind in the Midwest. Our homes are built with quality materials and thoughtful detailed design utilizing the latest construction techniques.
Whether it’s within our Pocket Neighborhoods or on your own lot, we look forward to working with you to build a home to celebrate everyday life and connections.
“The homes are darling inside and out, with a well thought out design, whether it’s window placement or pocket fences, just as Ross Chapin intended (if you’ve not looked at, you need to read Pocket Neighborhoods). I appreciated that the building standard options were high end and custom as is, so you weren’t overwrought with making decisions on every detail, but that Casey was flexible where you did want to deviate. A year and half later, I’m still receiving compliments any time someone comes to my cottage. And the icing on the cake is the tight-knit community and the friendships and comfort my neighbors provide. With 27 homes, it truly is a place where everyone knows your name. Relationships were formed during construction and have grown since…helping hands, shared resources, a watchful eye out for and on you, a shared cup of coffee or glass of wine. If you’re on your front porch, you can count on sharing a moment with whomever is out!”
“Quality construction was extremely important to me. I put some money I inherited from my father into my home and I needed to know that he would approve of the construction of the home as he felt that so many builders just make homes look good on the outside but inside are poorly constructed. I have no doubt my father would be over-the-moon pleased with my home—inside and out!”
