This year, building upon forty years of experience in the Northern California wine country, Nordby is expanding its footprint, offering luxury custom construction services throughout the state of Idaho for the first time. From bases of operation in Boise and Coeur d’Alene, the new Nordby Signature Builders offers a level of sophistication, craftsmanship, experience and management expertise that is simply unmatched in the state.
“We have some good builders in the greater Boise area, but not of the caliber Nordby Signature Builders brings. We are very happy to include them as a part of our custom and estate lot development phase at Star River Ranch.” – Steve Satterlee, CEO Full Sail Real Estate
Nordby’s expansion into Idaho, with its vast natural beauty, authentic culture and outdoor lifestyle, truly makes sense. Our Idaho team - drawn by the quality of life that makes Idaho ideal for so many - brings to this growing market a fresh perspective, combined with luxury custom building experience honed in the beautiful landscape of Northern California's wine country.
The decision to expand our company’s reach in the West represents a synergy of timing, opportunity, and personnel, propelled by a drive to work in new environments, opportunities presented by Idaho’s healthy growth, and the structure of trusted Nordby personnel on the ground in this new market. True to the company’s culture of leadership, dedication and long-standing relationships, our leaders in Idaho - Vice President Brian Olhiser, Northern Idaho Project Manager Rick Gerwin and Southern Idaho Project Manager Connor Tynan - began their tenures with Nordby Signature Homes in California and will continue their journey in Idaho. In a business - and a corporate culture - where people are our most highly valued asset, the significance of keeping good people cannot be overstated.
At Nordby Signature Builders, we are excited about the future. The immense amount of natural beauty In Idaho is undeniable. With the majestic Rocky Mountains as a backdrop, and more than 30 diverse state parks, Idaho is the perfect place for outdoor recreation, enjoys a high quality of life and is a great value - particularly for people moving from other, more costly states. Accordingly, Idaho saw the fastest growth from 2019 to 2020 of any state in the country.

We work with architects and homeowners from initial site selection and planning through to final construction to ensure a seamless process, and a project that is on time and on budget. With a deep well of experience building custom homes, wineries and commercial properties in some of the most beautiful regions in the West, we are your partners in the process, dedicated to providing first-in-class construction, every single time.
