A dream and a plan
Building on Tradition for More Than 40 Years
Clay Dietrich was only 15 when he landed his first job in home construction. Cutting, staining, varnishing – and whatever other odd job his foreman told him to do – every day after school. Little did he know at the time he was building the foundation for his career, and a lifelong love for construction.
From these small beginnings grew Dietrich Homes, with Clay as our president. Today, we enjoy a reputation as one of the premier design-build home builders in the area, a reputation that’s grown and spread thanks to our many satisfied clients we’ve served over the years.
Clay’s son, Tom, has worked within the company since he was 16, learning the trade much like his father did. Tom earned his business degree in 2007 from North Dakota State University and joined Dietrich Homes full time as a craftsman and jobsite superintendent managing all the finish and trim work. He worked his way up and is now our vice president in charge of all construction management, site superintendents and sub-contractors.
Clay earned Certified Graduate Builder certification from the National Association of Home Builders in 2010, a designation that further substantiates his expertise in all areas of homebuilding, from construction to management, finance to subcontractor control.
The Dietrich Homes staff has grown to include an office manager, architectural drafter, interior designer, jobsite superintendents, shop manager and finish and framing carpenters, as well as many long time sub-contractors who work with us each day to deliver the highest quality homes available in the market.
Dietrich Homes has “arrived” in many ways, but we’re never done building. The process continues, both for our company and our clients, with detailed craftsmanship and integrity at the forefront of everything we do.
