When my wife and I decided to build a custom home we had a short list of builders to consider.  The list comprised of builders who continually impressed us with their designs and quality during years of attending the Cedar Rapids Parade of Homes.  B Hancock Construction was one of the builders on that short list.  After reaching out to Brian he arranged for us to walk through two homes.  Brian was very attentive to all of our questions as we toured the homes and explained what makes his homes stand apart from others.  My wife, who is normally hesitant about making big decisions, stated as we left the second home, “Brian is building our house.  We don’t need to meet with any other builders.”  I agreed with her.  The decision was made.

 The complete build process was very smooth.  Before contracts were signed Brain did an excellent job communicating how the process would work, what he expected from us and what we needed to do to make our custom selections. During the build we never had a “surprise” type moment.  We always knew what steps next and what decisions we would need to make. Brian also took time to meet with us in person at the construction site when we needed help making choices.  He was a big help and always a pleasure to deal with.

Before building our house we heard horror stories from family and friends about building a custom home.  We were warned about delays, cost changes, low quality products, poor communication and the stress all those items created.  We didn’t experience a single issue.  Brian made the process so easy we would happily let him build us another home.  However, we love our B Hancock home so much we don’t plan on leaving it anytime soon.  My brother in-law warned us after building with another builder “If you aren’t completely stressed out, you aren’t doing it right.”  To that I answer, “If you aren’t completely stressed out, Brian Hancock must be building your home.”

“We highly recommend B. Hancock Homes to anyone looking to build their “dream home.”  We researched numerous home builders with a focus on finding the one builder that could take our home plan from concept to finished product.  After our initial consultation with Mr. Hancock, we were impressed by his professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail.  Brian was able to articulate the vision we had for our home and we felt extremely confident that his team would produce the home we envisioned. B. Hancock Homes delivered on every level for our family.  We felt included in every step of the building process and Brian and his team were courteous and patient throughout.   Brian took the time to communicate at every stage of the build and his team’s attention to detail and quality craftsmanship resulted in a beautiful home.  Brian was always open to our ideas and welcomed our input.  Every time we came to him with an idea and/or a change, his response was that he would make it happen!  Throughout the building process, it was crucial to Brian that he deliver the finished product that we had envisioned. Due to Brian’s experience, superior craftsmanship, attention to detail and great communication, B. Hancock provided us with a very successful home building experience.  Not only did Brian and his team build an award-winning Parade Home, they created a beautiful house for our family that we can call home for many years to come”

“It was a smooth process working with Brian. He was there with us every step of the way and always keeping in communication and very accommodating. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of work that Brian and his team does. We look forward to using Brian again in our future!”

-Dustin and Bridget Pierson

“We had no intention of building as we felt the process was overwhelming, but after finding a lot that we loved we decided to go for it. Brian and Heidi made the process so much easier on us and helped us as much or as little as we needed. Brian and his team made all of our crazy visions a reality and we are thrilled to be living in our dream home. We highly recommend B. Hancock Construction to any of our friends looking to build.”

“We decided to have B.Hancock Construction build our home after touring one of the model homes and talking with Brian about his building process and custom designing. We loved the floor plan and craftsmanship. We worked directly with Brian to make the changes we wanted to make it our own. Our home was completed on time and within budget. Brian gave us budget updates throughout the building process so there were no surprises at the end. Brian was in constant communication with us and kept us updated on what was happening in the building process and what to expect next. Brian uses the same group of sub-contractors and has a very good relationship with each of them. He manages them and schedules their time very well. There were very few days during the entire building of our home where there wasn’t action at the site. We always had the feeling that things were being taken care of and that we didn’t have to worry about trying to manage things ourselves. Brian and his crew are very skilled carpenters and have a great attention to detail. They produced a beautiful home that we are very proud of. We would recommend Brian to anyone”

“We researched allot of builders in the area, after seeing one of Brian Hancock’s homes we knew he was the builder we were looking for. Brian’s attention to detail and the all around quality of work between Brian, his crew and his subcontractors is fantastic. From the day we started looking at lots to the day we moved in to our home, Brian was there communicating with us every step of the way. The process was very organized and went extremely smooth!! If we ever decide to build again, we would not think about doing it without Brian Hancock at B. Hancock Homes”

“Brian is a great builder in our opinion. He built us a wonderful home, free of any problems. The process was smooth and the quality of the work was excellent. We highly recommend him and his staff if you are building a new home.”

– James & Donna Whitfield


“We had a list of eight builders and we narrowed it to four for quotes. The quotes were all close and we picked Brian because he put much more effort into preserving all of our design plans, as well as matching our budget. His references were excellent and the Hancock homes we toured were beautiful. This is the second home we have built and Brian made it much more enjoyable than the first. His crew and subcontractors were great and worked together well as a team. You could tell that they also respected the quality expectations Brian had set. As one reference stated, “I would build another house with Brian ‘in a heartbeat’.

-The Cochrane’s


“From our initial meeting to the closing, Brian was there guiding us through each step. Since this was our first time building a home, Brian’s patience and guidance were very much appreciated. Brian was not only in communication with us throughout the build, he was also on site with his tool belt on actively leading the build crew. When we had questions or certain details didn’t seem quite right, all it took was a quick call or text to Brian and he responded promptly to our request. Through the whole process it always felt like Brian was on our side! We are now enjoying our new home. We appreciate all of the hard work and the attention to detail that Brian’s crew added to our house. The past 6 months our home has been put to the test through snow, bitter cold, wind and rain. Our home has “weathered” these storms well with little issue. After living in our home for over six months we can see how Brian and his crew’s attention to detail and quality materials created a home that is built to last.”
