Welbuilt Homes in Bend, Oregon

Whether you're on a budget or sky's the limit, WelBuilt Homes knows how to build your dream home. We pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge and experience working with first-time home buyers, high-end custom homes, architecture review committees, and everything in between. 


We've worked with the biggest contractors in Central Oregon, so we know what it takes for a successful build. We like to keep WelBuilt on a smaller scale to build personal relationships with our customers. With us, you get the knowledge of a big business with the heart of a boutique builder. 


As an Oregon-based company, we know our community's diversity and honor it. Every home is individualized to that customer's needs, regardless of the idea, price point, or house size. 


WelBuilt Homes cares about you and your vision. It would be an honor to help you achieve your dream, no matter the scale. Let's make it happen.

About Us

When building the perfect Central Oregon dream home, what crosses your mind? Is it the open-concept kitchen with the farmhouse sink, the spacious garage with shelving units to the ceiling, or the family room with enough space for the kids to play with Legos while you and your significant other plan your next trip to the mountain? 


When you work with WelBuilt Homes, we spare no detail. We want to know why you chose a wrap-around deck to the intricacies of the importance of an en suite bathroom.


Building authentic relationships with our customers is our number one goal. You have trusted us to make your vision a reality, and we will deliver, down to the last detail. 


Our name isn't a fluke. Wellness, enrichment, and life are what drives our company. 


Partner with WelBuilt, so you don't have to worry about the little things. That's our job; we're here to make your dream home a reality.

Office Manager WelBuilt Homes

Linda is a self-starter who strives for excellence. That's how she continues to deliver when working with a client. Of Icelandic/German descent, Linda moved to Bend in 1994. That same year, she started her own construction cleaning business, Let's Construction Cleaning Services Inc. Beginning in an old VW, her company became the finest in the area. After selling her business in 2018, Linda took a year off to travel and visit family. We're lucky to have her with us now. When she isn’t in the office, you may see Linda rooting for the Oregon Ducks. She continues to hustle, work hard, and deliver for all of her clients.
