What is the CHIPPEWA VALLEY HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION?

Our mission is to build a better area housing industry through promotion, advocacy and education.

The Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association (CVHBA) is a non-profit trade association representing the home building industry in the Chippewa Valley. As a membership-based organization, we serve members in all aspects of the home building and remodeling industry including: builders, subcontractors, financing, title work, marketing, insurance and other professional services. The CVHBA provides opportunities for members to build connections, market their business, and save money. In addition, the CVHBA is commited to connecting with area youth with opportunities in the skilled trades, advocating on home building and housing issues and being a resource for area homeowners.

We are celebrating 50 years of building a better area housing industry in the Chippewa Valley! Learn more about the impact we've made over the last 50 years and how we've grown over the past five decades. Plus you can enter to win a 2023 Home Builders Association VIP package!

Whether building a new home, remodeling an existing home or needing a home service, the CVHBA should be your first stop! If you aren't sure who to contact, our staff are happy to help you connect you to area businesses. All of our members go through an application process that includes reference checks, proof of business insurance and all Builder Members must have a Dwelling Contractor license. We can also answer questions and provide information for the public on a wide range of topics. Visit our blog for information on a variety of home projects.

  • "As a homebuilder and a longtime member of the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association, I’ve seen the value of membership first hand. While there are many benefits with membership, including the Home & Garden Show and Parade of Homes, I especially like the networking opportunities such as 'Builder After Hours'."

    Mike Marthaler, Mike's Custom Homes

  • "Being part of the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association enhances my business and provides a level of prestige and credibility in the Chippewa Valley. As a member, I have numerous opportunities to connect with other members in the building industry and with area homeowners. These relationships I’ve developed as a part of the CVHBA have been important as I grew my business and my membership continues to help enhance our reputation in the community."

    Rob Bearrood, Chippewa Valley Door Company

  • "Signature Homes has been a Contractor Member of the CVHBA since 1999. The Parade of Homes has been a fantastic marketing opportunity for us to show the caliber of homes we build year after year. Recently we have been using the ongoing Contractor Education Events to earn credits to meet State of Wisconsin licensing and enjoy the benefit of doing that at no cost. We are  also able to send prospective clients to the CVHBA when we are not able to take on their project or it’s not the right fit for us. We’ve also had the CVHBA forward prospective clients our way as well. We plan to continue our Membership and encourage others to join when we’ve been asked about joining the CVHBA."

    Linda Machmeier, Signature Homes

  • "Being a member of the CVHBA has given our business a competitive edge by providing us access to the Parade of Homes and the Home and Garden Show.  Our business has grown significantly from the exposure that these two events have provided. Being a member has also been great for networking and building relationships with people and businesses that surround the housing industry in the Chippewa Valley.  I give credit to Lyman Lumber for encouraging me to become a member and would give the same advice to anyone that is considering joining."

    Adam Ashley, Ashley Construction

  • "We have been a Member of the CVHBA since 1982.  Being a Member of the CVHBA offers numerous opportunities and venues like the Annual Home and Garden Show and Builders After Hours that encourages face to face marketing with potential clients and other business professionals in the Chippewa Valley.   The CVHBA has been an invaluable resource that has helped our business grow over the years."
