With steadfast determination and an unyielding commitment to succeed, owner Duane McQuillen founded Duane McQuillen Construction in 1983. In the beginning Duane started with hands on experience; framing and trimming the homes he constructed. Having worked in literally every phrase of a home’s planning and construction over the years, he has learned every single aspect of custom homebuilding from the ground up; there isn’t an element of building a home that Duane can’t do himself. In a short length of time, he earned his contractor’s license and became a Registered Building Contractor and then became a State Certified Building Contractor. Duane is hands on with the client from the design stage to the final touches; by doing so he has a real feel of the home and the client’s expectations before construction has even started.
His work is more than just a job, it is a passion. He derives a deep satisfaction from the art of creating custom homes, from the most luxurious to smaller homes; all of which are dreams in the making and all built with the same high quality and customer service.. Using his vision, hands-on technique and knowledge, Duane incorporates the individual homeowner’s personality, style and character to make their custom home…… “their dream home”.
Duane McQuillen Construction has built an enviable reputation for integrity and incomparable quality in all aspects of its business. Our best advertisement is the word of mouth referrals of those who live in and cherish their homes.. and of course, each gorgeous custom home itself.
“I put my name on every home I build, and I can assure you that I will continue to take care of your needs even after you move into your dream custom home.” Duane McQuillen
With that said, Duane McQuillen Construction is known for the finest of custom homes in the area, each one with it’s unique flair. He also does Commercial projects including office buildings, restaurants, warehouses and self storage facilities; as well as, Residential and Commercial remodeling, additions and renovations.

We knew right away that we had found the right person for the job.
Never in a million years did I think I’d be writing a testimonial about our experience in building a custom house. But then again, we never thought a company like Duane McQuillen Construction existed in the construction business. From the very first time we met Duane, we knew right away we had found our builder. Throughout the entire building process, Duane and his team went above and beyond the call of duty to make us happy. For our design meetings, Duane always came prepared with samples, house plans, what-if scenarios and cost-saving ideas that ultimately allowed us to build a gorgeous custom home on budget and on time!
Sincerely, L&C Hurtado
Simply hands down exceptional
I want to say “Thank You Duane” for the professional and friendly experience I received while building our home it was simply hands down exceptional. After looking at other builders in the area none compared to the custom home you built for my family, from the quality of materials used on both the interior and exterior to seeing you at the job site everyday which was most reassuring that the workmanship was going precisely as you said it would.
Sincerely – C Peters
Very happy with everything

We Love Our New Home
We found Duane to be honest, personable, kind and professional. He was able from the beginning to allow us the freedom to look at various house plans and develop a plan that seemed to best fit our needs. Duane was able to blend his years of experience in construction to help guide us and make the necessary suggestions that enabled us to have a truly “custom built “ home to our liking. The finishing work, moldings, cabinets, details of which he upholds are remarkable and add to the beauty and design of the home. – The Daniels
