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.

Housing trends: Then and Now

When the Chippewa Valley Home Builders Association first formed in 1972 housing trends were very different than they are now...

  • "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."

    Ray Mueller, Erv Smith Services, Inc. & the Hearth Shoppe

  • "I have been a member of the CVHBA for 15 years. To me the most important part of my membership is the advocating the association does for their members. The CVHBA is fighting to help the builders and sub-contractors with the common problems that are impacting businesses in these trying times. In addition, having the opportunity to network with other members strengthens our relationships and we believe in members using members for business whenever they can."

    Pat Smith, Eau Claire Insulation & Exteriors

  • “Being a member of the CVHBA connects my company with others across the entire building industry.  The relationships formed by actively participating in events and committees has resulted in growth, both personally as well as professionally.  It’s great working together with a group that is motivated to improve our industry, both locally as well as nationally.”

    Kevin Anderson, Lyman Lumber Company

  • "The CVHBA always takes the lead on issues that affect housing affordability, through direct action and advocacy. There is none other than the CVHBA with the experience, knowledge, and credibility that is as active and engaged. Our membership takes pride in having one unified voice for the thousands of people, jobs, and families that we represent on housing issues."

    Greg Haselwander, Haselwander Companies Inc

  • "The Natural Touch Landscaping has been a member of the CVHBA since 2009.   One of our largest benefits is participating in the annual Home & Garden Show.  We have access to thousands of people in one weekend where we can show case our services, lead seminars and network with other trades.   The show always runs smoothly and professionally thanks to the incredible staff at CVHBA."
