FORT LORAMIE — 2020 was an extremely busy year for Middendorf Builders Inc, and the new home builder attributes its success to the dedication of its skilled workforce and the company’s commitment to construction excellence.
Middendorf Builders has been constructing new homes in the area since 1996, establishing a reputation as the premier home builder in Shelby County.
“Middendorf Builders care about what we do and take great pride in providing our customers excellent quality and value,” said President Mitch Middendorf.
His report continues:
“We are very pleased with the progress we made in 2020 and fully anticipate a successful 2021 designing and constructing new homes & additions for local residents,” said Middendorf.
Middendorf Builders specializes in working with their clients’ dreams and ideas, and turning them into a reality with a finished product they will be 100% satisfied with.
Middendorf Builders had 10 new home projects in 2020 along with addition and remodeling projects. Some challenges we faced along the way in 2020 were the scarce supply of building materials and large building material price increases. The COVID-19 Pandemic caused a lot of delays and lack of material production in 2020. We had to order a lot of the materials we needed for our homes/additions before we started our projects to ensure we would receive them when we would be ready to install.
Another challenge in 2020 was an enormous jump in material prices. Lumber prices almost double overnight in the middle of August which obviously cut into the bottom line of some of our projects we had going at that time. However, we feel very fortunate to be surrounded by quality subcontractors and vendors that worked with us in every way imaginable to help us reduce the impact of the price increases for our customers.”
With the increasing demand for new homes in 2020, Middendorf Builders has been focusing on their residential subdivision project called “Timber Trail Subdivision” in Anna. Each building site is over ½ acre, all sites have village utilities & the subdivision is conveniently located just minutes from Interstate 75 and Honda Manufacturing. 10 out of the 32 building sites are wooded with two of these wooded home sites over 1 acre in size. The properties in the subdivision have a 4-year tax abatement, which on a $300,000 property is over $13,200 in tax savings. We have 28 out of the 32 building sites sold and will continue to focus on developing our subdivision in 2021 to give the village of Anna a wonderful area of homes the community will be proud of. We have plans to construct five additional homes in Timber Trail starting in the spring of 2021.
We are preparing for new challenges and opportunities that 2021 will bring and we hope to build on the accomplishments of the past 24 years we have been in business. We look forward to working with our new clients in 2021 to provide them with an enjoyable, full service building experience. We would like to thank our past customers and look forward to establishing new relationships with new customers in 2021.
