About Fairbanks Construction


Craig Fairbanks - Cedar Falls home builder & home remodelingCraig Fairbanks is a lifelong resident of the Cedar Valley and is proud to call this area home.

He knew from an early age that he would be a homebuilder. His father started  building homes in 1953, and at age three Craig began helping his father with minor tasks. It wasn’t long until he was sketching home exteriors and exploring the thought of home design.

By the age of 15, Craig was designing plans for his father’s homes, and at 21 years old he designed and built his first custom home. Over the years, Craig has developed a deep love for home-building and design, as well as a passion for making dreams come true for the families who call those dwellings, home.


Experience with deep roots

These past 60+  years of home-building and remodeling in Cedar Valley have given us the knowledge and experience of the best practices to use. Knowing which process works the best for you as an individual customer and what to avoid that will cause you to have painful experience.  Buyers should be informed, but the customers are the final arbiters of all decisions allowable within building code regulations.

Home-building and remodeling can be overwhelming a times with thousands of selection decision to be made. We have developed a superior Design/Build and customer care service that makes building your new home as easy and smooth as possible.

From  listening  carefully to our customers at the initial consultation and into the design phase, you will be telling us what is important to you, then it’s our job to interpret those conversations into a design that specifically serves you. We have many cutting-edge ideas in both space planning and product selection to help you make your custom home truly exceptional.

Most people have never built a new home, so we do not expect our customers to figure out what needs to be done, leave that to us to guide you down the correct path.

Homes for a lifetime

We believe in building homes that will serve our customers for a lifetime, even as physical needs change. Our goal is  to research what you might encounter or need over the years to stay in your for as long as you would like regardless of physical limitations.

How great would it be to work with a builder who really “gets” you?

Designing and building a custom home is a long term relationship that should be based on mutual respect. We are committed to our relationship with you long after our obligations have been  fulfilled.

You’ll have that and more when you choose to let us serve you. That’s our promise.
