A Better Way to Build
SUPERIOR. STRONGER. SMARTER. Our homes reflect our customers.
Heritage Custom Builders constructs fine Ritz-Craft Custom Modular System Built homes. Yes, we said "Custom Modular". That means if you can't find what you're looking for among our plans, we can help you design your own custom home with our cutting edge software that allows you to take a virtual tour of your home while it’s being designed. That’s the versatility of design of a site built home with the quality and cost effectiveness of factory built. “System Built” means we’ve found the perfect balance between factory built and site built and use both methods to give you the most cost effective home possible with the kind of curb appeal you will be proud of for years to come.
We guide you step by step, one detail at a time, to make sure your future dream home is just right before you invest any of your hard earned money. We believe designing and building your new home is a process, not an event and, since every new home project is unique, following that process insures your project will be completed free of costly mistakes and on time.
We're different because we are owned by an excavator/contractor with over 20 years experience. Your project is completed from "dirt to doorknobs" by the same people from whom you bought your new home, not a group of subcontractors who were this week's low bidders. We proudly serve the greater Kalamazoo and West Michigan Lakeshore area as well as the surrounding communities including Gobles, Paw Paw, Three Rivers, South Haven, Holland, Allegan, Niles, Coloma, Decatur, Dowagiac, St. Joseph, New Buffalo, and the rest of South West Michigan.
What Our Customers are Saying
For the past 30+ years my husband and I have built or renovated 10 houses, everything from big city Victorian, to small country cottages, a storefront studio, and a chicken coop/bike shed. Currently 6 of those houses sit on 9 acres that are our business, Sweethaven Resort. We've rented fully furnished vacation cottages for 25 years.
Last spring we added a seventh cottage built by Heritage Custom Builders. We presented them with a few unique issues. We wanted a "convert-able" cottage that could be rented as 2 bdrm, a 3 bdrm or a 5 bdrm cottage. And it would be located in the woods a half mile from the road behind the existing cottages.
Mike Coeling designed a cottage with a large great room with a vaulted ceiling in the center. The south wing has 2 bdrms one bath, the north wing has 3 bdrms 2 baths. Each hallway has a sliding barn door that can be opened or closed to accommodate large or smaller parties. He was a delight to work with, expertly refining the design, helping us select the finishes and keeping the project on time and on budget. We loved our tour of the plant and meeting the guys who built our house.
Tim Cassidy had the toughest job. Clearing about a 6000 square-foot area for the cottage, parking pad and driveway, squeaking his giant trucks, cranes and backhoes down a winding, skinny driveway past the cottages. Then orchestrating the 6 boxes the house came in and the crew to put it together in less than a week.
The spacious rooms, beautiful finishes and idyllic setting make 'The Heron House' very popular with our guests. That makes It very profitable for us. It is built and insulated so well it is cheaper to heat and cool than our 1 bdrm cottage!
We always tell everyone what a pleasure it was to work with everyone involved with Heritage Builders, we have never had such a pleasurable experience building a house. We would do it again in a heartbeat! Mike & Tim could not have been more fun while being extremely professional as were their crews, (especially Dennis and his guard dog Rocky)

The Adairsville Cape is designed with integral, front entry garage areas to make the most of limited frontage building sites. At 2,062 square feet on the main level, the Adairsville offers three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and a Home Office in a comfortable and open family plan. The entry provides nice sight lines of the open Kitchen/Dining and Living areas--all with excellent access to a large rear deck or patio. The large Master Suite enjoys rear facing views as well as a nicely appointed Bath and a large walk-in closet. The upper level space is accessed from a centrally located stairwell leading to space for a fourth bedroom, additional full bath, loft room and expansive storage or additional living areas. The efficient design, charming curb appeal and "room to grow" features of the Adairsville plan can make the most of your building site.
