History

Leaving an enduring legacy

Palmer Homes has been building homes in Central Oregon since 1977.  Since then, the company has continued to establish itself as a homebuilder who works with a passion to provide exceptional home design at an affordable price.

Beginning as a custom homebuilder, Palmer Homes has worked on homes all over Central Oregon.  As Bend grew, the need for quality community planning grew, and by the 1990’s Palmer Homes chose to direct their expertise to meet that need.  As a leader in the revival of the return to craftsman architecture over 20 years ago, Palmer Homes has paid homage to Bend’s history.  Today, they continue to lead the building industry through the ongoing integration of new and interesting design templates with a variety of historical architectural styles.  Each plan merges modern technology with historical significance adding details that create a home not a house.

Each Palmer Home is built with permanence in mind, and as a 4th generation Oregonian, owner/ operator Vern Palmer, has the longevity homeowners trust in a builder.  Vern and his wife Gretchen lead Palmer Homes with the patience, familiarity, and understanding that come from experience in the industry.  Subcontractors are cared for and respected, and consideration of the unique characteristics of each property is incorporated into the design plans so that every home built is built to remain an enduring part of Bend’s legacy and value.
