We worked with Hurd Builders to build our custom home, and then we had them back to finish our basement. We cannot say enough good things. They are reliable, honest, and clearly take pride in their work. They also get a lot of joy making their customer’s ideas a reality. Between Russ’s builder expertise, Melody’s design experience, and their employee’s and contractors’ care for the details, we’re so glad we worked with Hurd Builders.
Two of the biggest issues I hear from friends and neighbors who built their own homes are outrageous cost overages and repeated problems. Hurd’s pricing is realistic. Baring unavoidable, unexpected expenses, you will be able to complete your project within a reasonable margin. We made selections for our house without compromising on design or quality. We ended up having a small overage that we thought was quite predictable and reasonable.
As for problems, there will always be a couple surprises. And surprises are far different than the nightmares you hear of that result from the poor planning and communication other builders are known for. One of the great things about Hurd Builders is that they mitigate the stress the customer experiences by handling most issues. If that can’t be done, expect a patient, clear explanation. They’ll follow that explanation by collaborating with you to resolve the issue. Their integrity was never more obvious than when we had a handful of conversations about unavoidable problems.
As if that all isn’t enough, when they found out our previous home was selling, they tightened the schedule of the remaining work. They worked very quickly the last few weeks to get us into our home in time. We were incredibly grateful for them taking care of our family in this deeply personal way.
Want to build your home with people who you will enjoy working with, who you will remain fond of when you’re done? Choose Russ and Melody Hurd.
Hurd Builders turned the vision of our dream home into a reality. From the moment we met with Russ and Mel Hurd, we knew they were the builders for us. They were there guiding us every step of the way including the planning process, site work, permitting and selections. They managed the project beautifully and delivered our gorgeous home on time and on budget. Not only are they top notch, the subcontractors they use are conscientious, professional and do an outstanding job as well. We feel blessed to have found Hurd Builders, to have worked with them and to now live in our forever home. We would highly recommend Hurd Builders!
“When we decided we wanted to build our dream home, we were overwhelmed with what builder we should choose. The first builder we called was very dismissive and unresponsive with us. The 2nd builder we called was Hurd Builders. We are so very thankful that we chose them to build our home! Being a husband and wife team, they know what it’s like to make multiple decisions together as a couple. Melody and Russ work beautifully as a team. They were both extremely responsive and patient with us throughout every single step of the home building process. They worked with us using our own drawings and enhanced them to make our dream a reality. One year later, we couldn’t be happier with our beautifully, solidly built, forever home! Thank you Mel & Russ!”
“We cannot say enough good things about Hurd Builders. In building our first home we were hesitant on the process, especially after speaking with other builders, but Russ and Mel made it seem easy. They will work with you throughout each step of the process and truly help you get everything you want out of your project. They were wonderful at communicating with us throughout the build which helped us feel a part of every step. Russ and Mel are honest and will make good on all terms of your agreement. They were the difference in making the building process a fun one as opposed to a stressful one. They also work with amazing contractors who are friendly, knowledgable and skilled. We recommend Hurd Builders to everyone we know!”
“I can’t say enough about Hurd Builders. Mel and Russ are professional, patient, and just great people to work with. My husband and I started out with “pie-in-the-sky” dreams for our future home, and they worked SO well together to help us tailor our house plans and future home to exactly what we wanted, while advising us on things that wouldn’t have been in our best interest. Every contractor they use is also top notch! Our final product is absolutely our dream come true!”
“We would like to share our building experience and act as a recommendation for your company. Let us break the experience down into the steps taken:
Would we use your company again, absolutely! You made the home building experience enjoyable and rewarding. We would love to do it again!”
“Building a home was NEVER on my bucket list of things I had or even wanted to do. But you, Mel and Russ, actually made it a pleasant experience! You nudged a little when needed, but never harassed. You suggested, but never demanded. You stood by your work throughout and made sure we were satisfied and happy!
I loved when I asked if I could have a kitchen counter to work at that actually fits me, you said, why not? And now, I love it! I loved when I asked for lots of light, you came up with the most beautiful, big windows so that every day I feel I’m half inside and half outside, just like I like. I loved that when I asked for lots of built-ins, you said, “Sure”, and made it happen. Now, even though our clutter habits haven’t changed, I have lots of places to hide things! There are so many of those “I loved’s”! When I described what I wanted things to feel like, you listened and did your best to create that for us. I loved that every step of the way, you tried to give us just what we were asking for, without breaking the budget.
Everyday, I wake up and love living here. I feel so blessed to have our home, and I thank you both for making it possible.
You two are a great team who take pride in and stand by your work. I am so happy to have met you.
Best regards and hoping things are going well in your world.”
We are writing this letter to recommend Russ and Melody Hurd as builders. We have known them for just over two years and met them after having had an unpleasant experience with another builder. Following our negative experience, we interviewed several new prospects including the Hurds who were recommended to us because they had built the home next door to our new property, and the owners had a good experience, trusted the Hurds, and were happy with the building experience and their new home. Following a positive interview we also inspected other examples of their work and were impressed with the quality.
My wife, Kathy, was especially happy to have Melody Hurd’s professional experience, insight, suggestions, and camaraderie to help her navigate the intricate world of fixtures, tiles, floorings, lighting, etc., the myriad world of decisions that must be dealt with in planning a new home from scratch. We both felt the Hurds gave us trustworthy, friendly, and helpful advice during the building process. They also promised to do their best to see that we were happy with the resulting product, our new home, and they lived up to that promise.
During the building process, if we ever had questions, Russ and Melody were accessible and helpful in answering our inquiries as well as following up with any necessary adjustments. After moving into our new home, they were still available to help us get settled and learn the details of caring for our home. They continued to care about our experience and helped out when necessary to make any corrections, including a one year assessment and adjustments to the existing structure.
We have lived in our new home for a full year and a half and are very happy. We count the Hurds as friends and happily recommend them to you as builders. They work closely with their clients and are not satisfied until the clients are satisfied. What more can I say?
“Thank you so much for building us a beautiful home that our family will enjoy for many years to come! Your personal touch is felt throughout. It has been a great pleasure working with you & Hurd Builders! You made all our dreams come true!”

After a few failed attempts with other local contractors, we saw Hurd Builders banner at the local high school’s stadium, and decided to contact them for a free consultation. Thankfully, Melody rescued our email from her spam/junk folder, and was eager to meet with us and help design our renovation project. While we didn’t have Hurd build us a new big and fancy dream home, they did, however, freshen up our old house beyond our expectations. Our carport was transformed into a great mudroom and the new spacious 2 car garage put the finishing touches on our home. They steered us through the whole renovation process and provided guidance on financing our project through a local lender. There were no hidden charges or cost overruns like we’ve heard others experiencing with their builders. Throughout the course of the construction, Russ was onsite daily to oversee the subcontractors, resolve any problems quickly, and keep us informed of the progress and schedule. All of their subcontractors were outstanding and highly skilled professionals who took pride in their work and left the worksite clean and tidy. The husband and wife team of Russ and Melody were experienced professionals, and fun and caring individuals who exceeded our expectations. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Russ and Melody and actually miss them stopping by checking on things, and socializing with their crews. We highly recommend Hurd Builders for any and all home construction and renovation projects.
“We are pleased to add our endorsement of Hurd Builders to the many other satisfied homeowners that have utilized their services. A real benefit is that Hurd Builders is a husband-wife team, so 2 professionals are on-call to listen, create and execute throughout the building process. Moreover, each partner’s skills, experience and areas of special knowledge complements the other’s. Melody and Russ work very hard to make every project proceed smoothly and without delay to create the exact home that the client desires.”
“It is my pleasure to write this letter of reference for Hurd Builders. This was our first new home construction experience, and we were looking for a custom builder that could see our vision and meet our expectations. Mel and Russ were wonderful to work with, and gave us very good advice at several decision points; many of which saved on costs and still delivered everything we wanted in design and function. I recommend them to anyone who is thinking of building their dream home.”
