In 1961 the foundation for the Overstreet family business was cast. Walter Overstreet began his career as a carpenter/contractor, compiling vital knowledge necessary for success in the trade. After a few years of experience he established Overstreet Builders, a small home building company whose reputation would echo superior quality custom homes. As he developed a name for himself it became evident that his personal commitment to the building industry would be unsurpassed.
Several years later, after establishing himself as a well-recognized and respected builder and board member of the Northern Illinois Home Builders Association, Walter Overstreet started grooming his son, Doug, to eventually work by his side, teaching him the details of running a family owned business. Today, the business, still family owned, is led by president Doug Overstreet (a past president of the Northern Illinois Home Builders Association). Doug upholds the same commitment to integrity and superior craftsmanship made by his father over forty years ago. Like his father, Doug dedicates himself to the individual needs of each of his customers and takes pride in the exceptional quality of houses he builds.
Overstreet Builders has grown to be a fully staffed semi-custom/custom home building company. The most recent addition to the family business is Doug’s son, Greg, a Purdue University graduate with a business management degree. Greg is the third generation involved in the family business, working side by side with Doug, learning applicable skills to today’s building industry.
At Overstreet Builders, we are committed to building high quality homes. From design, through construction, to final closing, we believe that no detail is ever too small or unimportant. This commitment is a time-honored tradition, handed-down…a success formula through the generations…from our family to yours.
