BUSINESS OF THE WEEK:
HiLine Homes
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

HiLine Homes has been in business for six years and has showrooms in Salem, Medford, Roseburg and Redmond, Oregon. I spoke with one of the owners, Jeremy Alderman, who along with his business partner Chris Brunette, employs about 18 people at the four showroom locations.

    I was surprised to learn that HiLine Homes builds stick-built homes, not manufactured or modular homes. They have over 30 floorplans, with sizes ranging from 900 to 3800 square feet.  What was also surprising was that these homes cost an average of $60 per square foot, which is an amazing price when you consider that for 2014 the average square footage price in Eugene is $165!   

“We can keep our prices low because we build over 100 houses a year in western Oregon,” says Jeremy.  “This year alone we plan to build 300 houses in Oregon and Washington.”

Jeremy says that the guaranteed build-time for their homes (from pouring the foundation to substantial completion of the home) is 140 days, and if they go over that time, the customer receives $100 per day for each day over the build-time. Most “on-your-lot” and many other custom home builders will raise your price if material or labor costs go up.  HiLine will never raise your price as long as construction begins within 90 days from the order date.  Once they start construction, your price is locked in and will never be increased, guaranteed!


HiLine Homes will construct a stick-built custom home for an average $60 a square foot.
When I asked Jeremy who typically buys one of these custom homes, he replied that it varies from fist-time owners to people looking to downsize. “We actually sell a lot of homes to people who are replacing their old manufactured or modular home,” he says.  HiLine has a list of subcontractors they use if a customer needs their old home torn down.

     HiLine has been a regular Shopper advertiser for many years.  “The paper gives us really pretty good coverage in an area that’s hard to market to,” says Jeremy. “We want people to know that we consider ourselves an on-your-lot builder, and we’re the largest one in the Pacific Northwest. We let people customize our floor plans. If you want the master bedroom wall moved out two feet, that’s fine. We really try to make it practical for our customers by being flexible. If someone needs a deck or garage built for their new home, we’ll build it. The standard siding we use is hardy plank, our roofs are limited lifetime asphalt shingles, and we blow in blanket insulation, which is above and beyond the industry standard.”

    If you’re in the market for a custom home at an extremely affordable price, visit their website at hilinehomes.com. Request a catalog where you can choose one of the many plans available. Or go to one of their showrooms in Salem, Medford, Roseburg and Redmond, which are open Monday through Saturday 9-5. All you need is the land, and you can be on your way to having the home of your dreams!
