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 which would soon earn a reputation for 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 began grooming his son, Doug; teaching him the skills of the trade as well as details of running a family owned business.
As the company progressed, Overstreet Builders grew to be a fully staffed semi-custom/custom home building company. Today, the business remains family owned, and is led by President Doug Overstreet (a past president of the Northern Illinois Home Builders Association). 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. Together, they uphold the same commitment to integrity and superior craftsmanship made by their father and grandfather over fifty years ago. As in the beginning, Overstreet Builders remains dedicated to the individual needs of each of its customers and takes pride in the exceptional quality of homes it builds.
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.
